DHHR: Active COVID-19 cases in West Virginia increase by 8% in last 24 hours

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced Friday that 1,324 cases of COVID-19 are currently active in the Mountain State. That’s an increase of 99 since the last report.

Locally, COVID-19 cases are active in Upshur (21), Barbour (6), Lewis (15), Randolph (17) and Webster (29) counties. In Upshur County, that’s an increase of one active case in the last 24 hours.

Two additional deaths have been attributed to the disease, according to the DHHR – an 84-year old male from Grant County and an 80-year old male from Cabell County. The deaths are a result of the Bureau for Public Health’s continuing data reconciliation with the official death certificate.

“The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of July 23, 2021, there have been 3,090,636 total confirmatory laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 165,702 total cases and 2,936 deaths,” according to a press release.

The daily percent positive was 3.68%.

A total of 872,745 people have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 in West Virginia, meaning they have received both doses of the vaccine, the DHHR said.  That’s about 49% of the state.
