Health officials in southwestern Illinois reported a total of 111 new cases of COVID-19 across the subway on Monday, topping a one-day record in a county.

St. Clair and Madison counties accounted for 99 new cases of the virus. St. Clair County reported a total of 54 new cases, while Madison County reported 45, its highest one-time increase since the new coronavirus was declared a pandemic.

Monday’s increase was 16 higher than Madison County’s previous record day when 29 cases were reported on Sunday, July 12. County officials reported Monday̵

7;s positivity is 11.54%.

Madison County Board Chairman Kurt Prenzler said he believes the total case will continue to increase as the test increases, noting that of the county’s 1,377 cases, only three were in the intensive care unit.

He said that the county’s main concern right now is nursing homes, where the virus has taken a heavy toll on the elderly. But he said the situation has improved overall.

“It’s still a big problem,” Prenzler said. “It continues to be a concern.”

Madison County also reported another virus-related death, a man in the 80s.

St. Clair County now has 2,602 cases of coronavirus and 145 deaths, leading the subway in both statistics.

Madison County is the second highest county with 1,377 cases and 71 deaths. Most cases in the metro east have come from these two counties.

Seven of the 111 additional cases reported on Monday came from Monroe County and five were reported in Randolph County.

The state announced 883 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Monday and six more virus-related deaths.

Illinois has seen a total of 7,193 deaths during the pandemic as of Sunday, officials reported. A total of 154,799 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus, while more than 1.9 million people have been tested for COVID-19.

As of Sunday, all areas of Illinois except the central and north central regions still met all state metrics to remain in Phase 4 of the reopening plan. The central region and the north central region both fall on one of the measured values, growth in hospital admissions over the past 28 days.
