The Illinois Department of Public Health reported 2,049 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the state’s total to 1,341,777.
The state’s death toll is at 22,047 after 28 more deaths were reported on Monday.
The seven-day statewide positivity rate for cases as a percent of total tests is 3.4 percent, down 0.1 percent from last week. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity using the number of COVID-19 positive tests over total tests is 4 percent, a 0.1 percent decrease from last week.
There were 49,473 tests processed over the past 24 hours. A total of 22,872,035 tests have been processed.
As of Sunday night, 1,963 Illinoisans were in the hospital with COVID-19, a decrease of 120 from last week. Of the patients in the hospital this week, 479 were in the ICU and 249 patients were on ventilators, the latter down two from last week.
Thirty percent of Illinois’ 32,280 hospital beds were available as of Monday morning. Twenty-five percent of the state’s 3,389 ICU beds were available as were 76 percent of the state’s 5,716 ventilators.
A total of 9,410,057 COVID-19 vaccines have been administered. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is approximately 78,440 doses, with 16,920 doses administered on Sunday.
The department said the low number is attributable to not having weekend data from several pharmacies like Walgreens, Albertsons and CVS. Missing doses from the weekend will be reflected in numbers over the coming days.
There have been 11,802,395 doses of COVID-19 vaccines delivered to Illinois providers, including in Chicago.
