New cases




Champaign County’s seven-day positivity rate fell Thursday to its lowest point in 137 days.

At 3.3 percent — down in a day from 3.9 — the county rate is at its lowest point since Oct. 12, when it stood at 3.2 percent.

Also down Thursday, for the 24th straight day: hospitalizations for the 21-county region that covers East Central Illinois — by one, to 61.

Region 6’s seven-day positivity rate held at 3.1 percent, matching a figure that until this week hadn’t been reached since July 22.

The metrics the state uses to determine a region’s positivity rate cover a seven-day period that ended three days ago (figures posted Thursday are through Feb. 22).

Region 6’s metrics exclude data from the University of Illinois campus’ saliva testing. (If UI tests were included, the region’s rate would be 0.8 percent).
