The Illinois Department of Public Health is reporting 13,031 confirmed cases in Cook County long-term facilities and 2,194 deaths. It appears that the numbers have not been updated since July 3 as they were identical on that date. The IDPH temporarily removed some cases and deaths since Patch has been tracking these numbers.

State health officials on Friday announced 1,317 new cases of the coronavirus and 25 additional deaths from COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the virus. That’s the most new cases since June 2 — almost 300 more than Thursday and double last Friday’s total. The statewide numbers now stand at 151,767 confirmed infections and 7,144 deaths, not counting another 1,132 probable cases and an additional 210 probable deaths.

The latest deaths include:

  • Cass County: 1 female 80s

  • Cook County: 3 females 60s, 2 males 60s, 1 unknown 60s, 3 females 70s, 2 males 70s, 2 females 80s, 1 male 80s, 1 female 90s, 1 male 90s

Every county in Illinois has now reported cases, state officials said.

In the past 24 hours, labs in Illinois have processed 32,987 coronavirus tests, for a total of more than 1.9 million since the pandemic began. The state’s rolling, seven-day positivity rate is about 2.9 percent, down from more than 16 percent earlier this year, but up half a percent from last week. According to Johns Hopkins University, a positivity rate of less than 12 percent is a good measure of whether enough tests are being conducted in a given state.

As of Friday, the United States as a whole had tested more than 38 million people for the coronavirus. The country now has more than 3.1 million confirmed coronavirus infections, according to Johns Hopkins University, and at least 133,746 Americans have died from COVID-19.

The country set a record Thursday with almost 60,000 new cases, the biggest single-day increase so far, and the sixth daily record in 10 days. Multiple states continued the trend Friday, with the New York Times reporting daily deaths are again starting to rise across the country. The CDC’s latest prediction estimates between 140,000 and 160,000 deaths nationwide by August 1.

Globally, more than 12.3 million people have been infected and 556,863 are known to have died.

Illinois Coronavirus Helpline:

Illinois officials say a state helpline has been set up to provide emotional support and quick answers to questions about the coronavirus pandemic. Illinoisans can test “TALK” to 55-2020 (or “HABLAR” for Spanish), and within 24 hours they will receive a call from a counselor. Residents can also text keywords like “UNEMPLOYMENT,” “FOOD,” or “SHELTER,” to the same number to receive additional information about those topics.

Tips from the CDC on dealing with coronavirus:

While the best way to prevent illness is to avoid virus exposure, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention generally recommends taking these actions to prevent the spread of viruses:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

What to do if you’re sick:

Call head if you’re planning to visit your doctor:

  • If you have a medical appointment, call the health care provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the health care provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

Stay home unless you must see a doctor:

  • Stay home: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to isolate at home during their illness. You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care.

  • Avoid public areas: Do not go to work, school, or public areas.

  • Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing or taxis.

Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home:

  • Stay away from others: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.

  • Limit contact with pets and animals: You should restrict contact with pets and other animals while you are sick with COVID-19, just as you would around other people. Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus.

  • When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick. If you are sick with COVID-19, avoid contact with your pet, including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked and sharing food. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets and wear a face mask. See COVID-19 and Animals for more information.

Avoid sharing personal household items:

  • Do not share: You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people or pets in your home.

  • Wash thoroughly after use: After using these items, they should be washed thoroughly with soap and water.

Masks:

  • CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

  • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

  • The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

  • Face mask instructions — sew- and no-sew masks
