What I wonder is of the 9,757 deaths, how many died OF Covid & how many died WITH Covid.
Also, of the Covid hospitalizations, I’d be curious to know if they had the seasonal flu & their test showed positive for Covid, assuming they had a test.
Would it surprise you to learn COVID-19 has killed a total of 129 people age 18 or younger? Meanwhile, 3,000 people (that’s not a rounded number) between the ages of 10 and 19 committed suicide in 2018. Another 4,240 died of accidental injuries. What emergency measures have we taken to reduce those numbers? Mandated annual psych evaluations? Raised the driving age to 21? Made it illegal for kids to handle firearms? No, no, and no. Yet kids can’t play sports, sing in choir, or go to school.
526,509 individuals 65 and over died of heart disease in 2018. That dwarfs the 235,159 COVID-19 deaths among all ages. What emergency measures are we taking to ensure people don’t die of heart disease? Enforced heart healthy diets? Mandated daily exercise? Alcohol and cigarette bans? None of those. But our governor thinks it’s too dangerous to eat inside a restaurant.
I’m not suggesting we act like COVID-19 doesn’t exist. I’ve been for reasonable precautions (almost) since the very beginning. You can check that, if you’d like. But we’ve all been accepting risks far greater than COVID-19 for a long, long time. It’s time to stop the fear mongering. And it’s time to enact policy that makes sense.
Something is going on.
The numbers the state reports for counties has always been slightly off from the county health dept. But lately the numbers have been HUGE.
The Counties are much much lower. Kane was off by a over 200 cases.
DuPage Deaths were DOUBLED for the last week.
Look for yourself. JB Is FAKING NUMBERS!!!
A new single day record of tests reported. Positive rate 7.3% yesterday and Death RATE drops again!!! Just 400k positive in a state of 12.6M so 12.2 Million are negative.

So there was a phone conference today where the Illinois Department of Health and the Illinois State Police were on with many local elected officials.
Here are the main takeaways:
1) Illinois State Police will not participate in any attempts to close a business.
2) Health Department is not sure how to enforce closing a business. They are trying to figure it out.
3) Even though schools and home are the presumed main contributors to positive cases, they are going after bars and restaurants because those are the only places they can try and control.
Your livelihoods are being destroyed over this wishy washy bullshit. Please don’t fall for this anymore.
