CHARLESTON, WV (WVNS) — 5 p.m. Friday, May 22, 2020: Positive COVID-19 cases surged on Friday evening as the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources adds probable cases to their dashboard. The updated positive cases is 1,705. That is up 89 from Friday morning. The cumulative positive rate is 2.09-percent.

Another death is reported from COVID-19 in West Virginia. The 72nd fatality is a 54-year old male from Lewis County.

“With great sadness, we report another death as a result of COVID-19,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “Our condolences are extended to the family for their loss.”

In alignment with updated definitions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the dashboard now includes probable cases. Although a small portion of the cases to date, probable cases 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.  Public health takes all the same precautions for probable cases as confirmed cases, so those will now be included on the dashboard.
