County by County Update: Beginning in mid-April, IDPH will provide a county-by-county update focused on the rate of cases per 100,000 people, the percentage of critical care beds available, a seven-day rolling average of hospital admissions hospital diagnosed with COVID-19 and deaths weekly.
The definition of a hospitalization for a diagnosis of COVID-19 is as follows: the seven-day average of the daily number of hospital admissions diagnosed with COVID-19, as measured using the system Illinois Syndromic Surveillance.
Illinois collects all ER and inpatient visits through syndromic surveillance of all Illinois acute care hospitals in near real time. Data are presented with a three-day lag to allow time for the diagnosis to be reported.
At the county level, a visit is counted based on where the patient lives. A patient with multiple visits will be counted for each visit. Admissions may not be due to COVID-19 as the primary cause. Syndromic surveillance data is not the same source used by the CDC to report COVID-19 hospital admission data.
