NBC 5 Investigates 166 Unreported Chicago-Area Coronavirus Nursing Home Deaths, and Where They Occurred

At least 11,469 cases have been reported at Illinois nursing homes, state officials said

The Illinois Department of Public Health has listed a total of 11,469 coronavirus cases, and 1,553 deaths, in long-term care facilities across the state.

But NBC 5 Investigates has tallied a total of 1,719 deaths, including 166 more deaths at nursing homes that have so far gone unrecorded by the state. Most -- but not all -- of the unreported deaths are in Cook County nursing homes. We found them by matching addresses in the Cook County Medical Examiner's records to addresses of long-term care facilities.
