Illinois Coronavirus by the Numbers: Monday, April 27 Update

CHICAGO – Health officials alongside Gov. J.B. Pritzker during a daily COVID-19 briefing Monday reported 1,980 new cases of Coronavirus and an additional 50 deaths, raising Illinois’ totals to 45,883 and 1,983 respectively.

The governor said he plans to appeal a judge’s ruling in favor of G.O.P. State Representative Darren Bailey, who sued the state and claimed Pritzker didn’t have the authority to extend his stay-at-home order.

The ruling only favors Bailey, who now has a temporary restraining order and is exempt from the order.

Several cases reported by the state came via area health departments. Here are the latest:

Franklin-Williamson Bi-County (8 F, 26 W)

  • Male in his fifties from Williamson County, isolated.

Ten cases have recovered in Williamson, as well as five in Franklin.

Southern Seven

  • Female in her fifties from Alexander County (3 total)
  • Female in her thirties from Johnson County (4 total, 2 of which recovered)
  • Male in his thirties from Massac County (4 total, 3 of which recovered)
  • Two males in their twenties from Pulaski County (17 total, 5 of which have recovered)
  • Male in his forties from Union County (8 total, one of which has recovered)

All cases are now isolated.

Perry County (10 total)

  • Female in her thirties, isolated.
