CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources has released its afternoon coronavirus report for Sunday, June 7.

According to the release, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reported that as of 5 p.m., on June 7, 2020, there have been 111,738 total confirmatory laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 2,144 total cases and 84 deaths.

Officials explained that in alignment with updated definitions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the dashboard 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. 

Listed below are the total number of confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 per county, according to the DHHR’s latest report:

As case surveillance continues at the local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state border to be tested.

More information is available at the DHHR’s COVID-19 dashboard.

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.
