67 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in West Virginia on Tuesday

A total of 67 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources on Tuesday morning.

The number of new cases had dropped briefly Monday but rebounded Tuesday with the single largest daily increase since the first positive result was confirmed in West Virginia three weeks ago.

“As of April 7, 2020, at 10 a.m., 12,059 residents have been tested for COVID-19, with 412 positive, 11,647 negative and four deaths,” according to a press release from the DHHR.

New cases were found in Barbour, Berkeley, Brooke, Cabell, Fayette, Hancock, Jackson, Jefferson, Kanawha, Logan, Marion, Mason, McDowell, Mercer, Mineral, Monongalia, Morgan, Nicholas, Ohio, Preston, Putnam, Taylor, Tyler, Wood and Wyoming counties.

Some of the new confirmations date back to tests taken on March 24, according to DHHR data, representing the nearly two-week lag between the time some samples are taken and the time results are returned by the lab.
