IDPH SAYS CURVE IS FLATTENING IN ILLINOIS

The curve is flattening in Illinois when it comes to COVID-19 cases.

Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike says the curve is slowing because sick people are infecting fewer people now than they were weeks ago.

Ezike says now that the ‘R naught’ is in the ones, that’s an achievement, but it is still not low enough. Considering averages, Ezike says you need to strive for each sick person to infect less than one other person to stop the spread of a virus.

The state announced 1,551 more cases Tuesday afternoon. With the addition of 119 deaths, that brings the total number of COVID-19 cases to 33,059 and the death total to 1,468.
