5 p.m. Sunday, May 17, 2020: The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) announced 1,490 positive cases in the state Sunday evening.

74,000 negative cases have been reported. The death toll also rose to 67.

The two latest victims are a 69- year-old man and an 85-year-old woman from Fayette County. These deaths were previously confirmed by the Fayette County Health Department over the weekend.

The total positive cases from this morning’s 10:00 a.m. report was 1,492, but it now stands at 1,490. The reason for this change is the total positive cases dropped by three cases and one was added, resulting in a net loss of two to the total positive case count: Cabell County’s reported case count went down by one, as did Kanawha County’s and Monongalia County’s, and Pocahontas County saw an increase by one case. The reason for the reductions in the total may be attributed to individuals being from out of state or a duplicate case reported earlier was determined by a county health department.

These are considered official numbers reported to the state, which will in turn, be reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Delays may be experienced with the reporting of cases and deaths from the local health department to the state health department.

There are four new cases in Pocahontas County and one in Greenbrier County.

There are 919 people who have recovered.

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.  Such is the case of Cabell County in this report.

A dashboard is available at www.coronavirus.wv.gov with West Virginia-specific data, including new information on the health status of COVID-19 positive patients and other information. A Frequently Asked Questions document has been developed regarding case counts and can be found here


5 p.m. Sunday, April 12, 2020: The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of 5 p.m., on April 12, 2020, there have been 16,257 residents tested for COVID-19, with 611 positive, 15,646 negative and eight deaths.

This includes the death of the 25-year-old man from Logan County that was reported by the Logan County Health Department on Saturday, April 11, and the 80-year old woman from Monongalia County.

“We mourn with all families suffering the loss of loved ones due to COVID-19,” said Bill J. Crouch, Cabinet Secretary of DHHR.

Delays may be experienced with the reporting of cases and deaths from the local health department to the state health department. It’s not uncommon for the local level to report case numbers first and then officially report it to the state.
