SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that it plans to withdraw a controversial emergency rule that would have allowed for criminal charges against businesses that open in violation of Gov. JB Pritzker’s stay-at-home order.
Illinois’ top health official on Monday said the state has received its first shipment of Remdesivir, an antiviral drug that has proven early success as a treatment for COVID-19 patients.
As Illinois cases continue to rise, Governor JB Pritzker spoke about reopening restaurants and schools, and holding games for professional sports. The governor also continued to applaud the state’s efforts in testing for COVID-19 while also saying there needs to be more.
Illinois Department of Public Health Dr. Ngozi Ezike said that Illinois is at war with an invisible enemy. As fatalities hit a single day record and Governor JB Pritzker unveiled his plan to return Illinois to a semblance of normal, the doctor urged residents to take personal responsibility.
