  1. Is it possible to do a compare and contrast article of the covid-19 virus numbers between Illinois and Indiana? Living so close to the state line, I think that would be interesting.

    • Thanks for the idea, LB. The basic news release is coming from Governor Pritzker’s office each day, so it includes only Illinois information—and lately we have been adding the Lansing number in the subhead. I imagine it would be fairly easy to get daily information from Indiana as well. We’ll give that a try in the next update.
