County-by-county update: From mid-April, IDPH will deliver a county-by-county update focusing on the case per. 100,000 people, the percentage of intensive care beds available, a rolling seven-day average of COVID-19 diagnosed hospitalizations, and weekly deaths.
The definition of a COVID-19 diagnosed hospitalization is as follows: The seven-day average of the daily number of hospital admissions given a diagnosis of COVID-19 measured using the Illinois Syndromic Surveillance System.
Illinois collects all emergency rooms and inpatient visits through syndromic monitoring from all acute hospitals in Illinois in near real time. Data are presented with a three-day delay to allow time for diagnosis.
At the county level, a visit is counted according to where the patient is staying. A patient with multiple visits will be counted for each visit. Admissions may not be due to COVID-19 as the primary cause. Syndrome monitoring data is not the same source that the CDC uses to report COVID-19 hospitalization data.
