If one person can pass it on to three others, then by the end of August, everyone in the county will have the virus. Just do the math.

2582 is the same number the paper posted at the top of this mornings paper. That’s an increase of 0, not 103.

Hi Paul, Thanks for your comment. You're correct, and we fixed the story to show a total of 2,685 cases. Thanks for your sharp eyes.

Left out the 143 recovered, that’s a net of negative 40. Report the complete picture please

Hi Rick, Thank you for reading. The complete graphic from the health department is attached to the story, and the story notes that there are more than 1,300 total recoveries, but we can certainly be more explicit about new daily recoveries in the future. Thank you as always for the feedback. - Ciara McCarthy, Advocate health reporter
