Chicago Tribune: Is the COVID-19 pandemic growing or shrinking in Illinois? New website tracks a key metric.. “A group of Illinois COVID-19 researchers has launched a webpage to try to help residents see and make sense of the latest pandemic trends, including one of the easiest metrics to understand: the reproduction rate.
