Cases are increasing in the states surrounding Illinois; Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana, for example — but in Illinois, Lake County and DuPage County are the stories to watch.

Taking a look at the western suburbs, DuPage County has seen a 111 percent increase in cases over the last two weeks. However, the underlying news over that same time span is that hospitalizations, particularly those involving the most serious illnesses, have decreased by 1 percent. The vaccination rate in DuPage County is 77 percent, according to the county.

In Lake County, near the Wisconsin border, the scenario is similar, with cases increasing by 98 percent in the last two weeks, but hospitalizations increasing by 28 percent. Lake County has a vaccination rate of 78 percent, according to the CDC.

Cases in the city of Chicago have increased by 25 percent in the last week, which is similar to, but significantly different from, the story told by other cities. Hospitalizations are extremely rare, with about 12 deaths each day. Dr. Arwady has already said that they are the lowest levels ever recorded throughout the epidemic period.

There are two national tales that are worth mentioning — one is in the northeastern portion of the country, and the other is in the southwest region of the country. Vermont and New Hampshire are two of the most beautiful states in the country.

Hospitalizations have increased by 60 percent in just two weeks, and it is the part of the country we don’t want to see replicated elsewhere.

And when it comes to the total number of Americans who have tested positive for Coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the figure is currently six out of every ten Americans. a great deal of data, but also a great deal of movement and a lot of interesting stories to tell.

DuPage County Health officials tell us that these rises are not surprising given the reductions in some mitigating and prevention initiatives that have been implemented in DuPage County and across the country.
