Coronavirus

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources confirmed 662 new COVID-19 cases and one additional death in its report on Sunday.

The DHHR announced 655 new COVID-19 cases and 15 additional deaths in its report on Saturday.

The report from the DHHR stated that as of 10 a.m. on Sunday, November 8, there have been a total of 846,722 (+11,582) laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 28,404 (+662) total cases and 502 (+1) of those cases resulting in deaths.

The DHHR has confirmed the death of an 83-year old male from Kanawha County.

“As many West Virginians are growing tired of COVID-19, we must stay vigilant in our efforts to prevent further spread in our communities,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “Our condolences are extended to this family during their time of grief.”

*Please note a death reported on Thursday, November 5, of a 90-year old female from Summers County was erroneously reported yesterday, Saturday, November 7, so the total deaths stand at 502. There were spelling errors and a wrong birth month reported to DHHR which caused the duplication of reporting.

According to the DHHR’s coronavirus dashboard, there are currently 6,872 (+418) active cases and 21,032 (+246) recovered cases in the state.

Editor’s note: The numbers received from the West Virginia DHHR include cases that have already been resolved. Therefore, these counts need to be viewed as historical cases, rather than active cases.

Editor’s note 2: The total number of cases confirmed by the DHHR now includes probable cases, which are individuals that have symptoms and either serologic (antibody) or epidemiologic (e.g., a link to a confirmed case) evidence of disease, but no confirmatory test.
