7/5 COVID-19 in Illinois thread begins here.

A heads up that some testing sites were closed yesterday. Numbers could be wonky.

27,235 tests performed in the past 24 hours, 639 new cases.

Positive rate: 2.34% (was 2.54 yesterday)

7-day average remains: 2.6%
Only 6 COVID-19 deaths announced in Illinois.

That is the fewest since March 25 (3 deaths that day)
COVID hospital admissions % change in past 28 days:

Northeast: -59%
North Central: -56%
Central: +13% (was -5 yesterday)
Southern: -65%

Central Region back to being marked "stable" by IDPH.
Medical/Surgical beds available by region (rolling avg.):
Northeast: 34%
North Central: 47%
Central: 41%
Southern: 46%
ICU beds available by region (rolling avg.):
Northeast: 44%
North Central: 58%
Central: 51%
Southern: 51%
Ventilators available by region (rolling avg.)
Northeast: 74%
North Central: 77%
Central: 77%
Southern: 79%
COVID percent positive of tests by region (rolling avg.):

Northeast: 4%
North Central: 3%
Central: 2%
Southern: 4%
1,326 COVID-19 patients in the hospital (-20 from 24 hours ago)

304 COVID-19 patients in the ICU (-32 from 24 hours ago)

165 COVID-19 patients on ventilators (-17 from 24 hours ago)
Hospitalizations, ICU patients and patients on ventilators are all at their lowest since IDPH started making this data public.

Two months ago, Illinois had almost 4,900 COVID-19 patients in the hospital and 1,250 in the ICU.
7/5 summary:

Sunday numbers are generally good.

Some testing sites were closed, and I imagine because of the holiday we did not get the full data picture today.

Don't be completely shocked to see a sudden rise on Monday/Tuesday. It might not mean anything but data catching up.
7/5 summary part II:

Illinois moved to Phase 4 a little more than a week ago. Report card time for that first weekend is soon for cases, positivity rate and hospitalizations.
Check that on ventilators. 165 today. We were at 164 a couple of days ago. Second lowest number since IDPH made this data public.
