There is a reason why you don’t hear about how many people in Illinois have recovered from the coronavirus: The state doesn’t track recoveries. Illinois Department of Public Health Director Ngozi Ezike yesterday said the state doesn’t follow-up with people once they end their coronavirus treatments or leave the hospital. Over 98-thousand people in Illinois have tested positive for the virus out of more than 620-thousand people tested. There are four-thousand deaths in Illinois.
