The United States is now the fourth-highest number in countries as a nation in the world, with a total of 26,747 cases and 340 deaths. 

Illinois Development of Public Health announced 296 new cases of coronavirus, including an infant.  Deaths included a Cook County man in his 80s, a Chicago man in his 80s, and a McLean County woman in her 70s.  COVID-19 cases now stretch across 90 counties in Illinois, with a total of 1,049 cases ranging from younger to one to 99 years old.

Among new counties reporting include Jo Daviess, Livingston, Rock Island and Stephenson counties are now reporting cases.

Governor Pritzker asked Illinoisans the importance of understanding that; in fact, these numbers will continue to grow with the ‘Stay-at-Home’ order in place before the start to decline.

“As we move forward here, one of the things the Doctors have said, the Researchers have said, after about eight or ten days after the ‘Stay-at-Home’ order is put in place, we may begin to see the increase in the number of cases reported start to diminish their acceleration” Governor Pritzker’s advisers hope around 8-10 days after the Stay-at-Home order has been in effect, those numbers will go to only a geometric level.

Among new counties reporting include Jo Daviess, Livingston, Rock Island and Stephenson counties are now reporting cases.

A call out was made during today’s COVID-19 press conference for PPE donations by businesses and organizations, blood donations and volunteers in Illinois, “A blood shortage would only worsen the health crisis, so we need your help. Millions of Illinois rely on the kindness of each other, every single day.  That doesn’t need to change just because you’ve been asked to stay home.  It may just take a little creativity.”

Serve Illinois is in the process of providing CDC guidance to service organizations across the state.

 “Non-Profits and Faith Organizations are continuing to operate and fulfill their missions, to help those in need.” said Governor Pritkzer, “This is an opportunity for healthy college students looking for something to do, or individuals unable to work from home, an opportunity for people who are healthy and looking to help.
