COVID-19 tests hit milestone, Pritzker warns long way to go

Illinois Governor Pritzker daily update 4/24

ILLINOIS. (WFIE) - The Illinois coronavirus map is showing one new case in Wayne County, bringing the county’s total to two. The map also shows one case in Wabash County and one case in White County.

Illinois public health officials completed more than 16,000 tests for COVID-19 in 24 hours, surpassing for the first time the 10,000-per-day mark that the governor on Friday called a milestone on the way to tracking the deadly virus and ending tight restrictions on social interaction.

But Pritzker, who on Thursday extended the statewide stay-at-home order, indicated there’s a long way to go for Illinois.

The Department of Public Health reported another 108 deaths and more than 2,700 infections of COVD-19 statewide.
