The statewide statistics for Wednesday tracking the COVID-19 pandemic shows another 1,529 cases in Illinois with 82 more deaths, including another one in Madison County – a female in her 60s. The number of confirmed cases in Madison County has jumped to 85.

According to data from the Madison County Health Department, 26 of those cases have recovered. The Illinois Department of Public Health reports St. Clair County is at 105 cases and 6 deaths. There are 10 confirmed cases in Macoupin County, 5 in Jersey County, and still just one in Calhoun County.
