Deadly toll of COVID-19 on health care field: A memorial to 46 of those who died

More than 100 professionals working in the health care field have died in Illinois since COVID-19 began its deadly march through the state this past spring, according to public health officials, who said the exact figure is likely higher.

They include nurses, doctors, medical assistants, technicians, therapists and other support staff who clean rooms, serve food and provide security. They worked in hospitals, nursing homes, private offices or on ambulance crews and in homes as health aides. Most were minorities.

The Tribune has identified and interviewed dozens of families to chronicle the devastating loss of life and acts of heroism. If you know someone you would like to submit to this memorial, please contact us here.
