The first coronavirus death in Illinois was a woman in her 60’s, announced Governor J.B. Pritzker at today’s daily press briefing on the state of COVID-19 in Illinois.

She was diagnosed earlier this month after being in close contact with another COVID-19 case. She was then hospitalized, where she later died. The Chicago woman had underlying conditions and was not a resident at a long-term care facility.
