County by County Update: Starting in mid-April, IDPH will provide a county-by-county update focusing 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 weekly deaths.
The definition of a hospitalization diagnosed with COVID-19 is: the seven-day average of the daily number of hospital admissions diagnosed with COVID-19, as measured using the surveillance system Syndromic Illinois.
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 the CDC uses to report COVID-19 hospital admissions data.
