Coronavirus

CHICAGO Illinois health officials reported 10,376 new cases of COVID-19 in Illinois Friday, including 49 additional deaths.

Following CDC guidance, the Illinois Department of Public Health will begin to report confirmed cases and probable cases combined beginning November 6, 2020 and moving forward. Therefore, the total number of statewide cases from this date forward include both confirmed and probable cases.

A confirmed case is laboratory confirmed via molecular test, whereas a probable case meets clinical criteria AND is epidemiologically linked, or is connected to a positive antigen test. If a probable case is later confirmed, the case will only be counted once.

Probable deaths and confirmed deaths will continue to be reported separately.
