CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Division of Health and Human Resources has reported 17 new cases of COVID-19 around the state, bringing the total over 100 for the first time.

New cases were identified in Berkeley, Greenbrier, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Kanawha, Marion, Marshall, Monongalia, and Raleigh counties.

No new counties have been affected as of the report on Sunday evening, the DHHR said.

2,818 tests have been performed in the state, with 113 positive cases and 2,705 with negative results and no cases pending at the state lab, officials said.
