Across IL, the number of patients in Illinois hospitals with COVID-like illnesses has reached an all-time high, with 5,258 people across the state currently hospitalized because of the virus. Since October 1st, the state has seen a 179% jump in hospitalizations, a 161% increase in COVID patients on ventilators, and a 135% spike in ICU admissions. “If things don’t take a turn in the coming days, we will quickly reach the point where some form of a mandatory stay-at-home order will be all that is left,” Pritzker said Thursday.
RHA has been taking the necessary precautions and will continue to monitor these statistics. We ask that the Rockford Community do the same. Please stay safe and healthy.
