Illinois reports 1,403 new COVID-19 cases, 5 additional deaths – Chicago Sun-Times

Illinois health officials Sunday announced 1,403 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, a sharp decline from the massive daily tally reported a day earlier.

On Saturday, Illinois reported 2,806 new coronavirus cases, one of the highest daily totals since the state’s worst period of the pandemic.

The new cases also come two days after the state recorded 5,368 cases of the coronavirus, a record high the Illinois Department of Public Health attributed to three days’ worth of delayed test results due to a data-processing backlog.
