Champaign County adds 36 COVID-19 cases, third-most in a day during pandemic

  • Updated

In the span of five days, Champaign County has had two of its three biggest 24-hour increases in new COVID-19 cases.

Tuesday’s count was 36 — topped only by Friday’s 43 new cases and the 37 added on May 19.

 Tuesday’s numbers were mostly discouraging all the way around:

— While the seven-day positivity rate remained low (1.1 percent), the single-day rate was 2.8 percent (1,299 tests, 36 cases).

— Hospitalizations continued to climb — by two in a day, to 10. On Friday, that number was three.

— The active case total grew by 22, to 181. Recovered cases were up 14, to 1,035.

— New cases were added throughout the county — from three in Foosland (pop. 99) to 10 in Urbana’s 61802 ZIP code, which passed Champaign’s 61822 for the third-most active cases in Champaign County.
