DHHR reports West Virginia’s 7,000th COVID-19 death on Monday

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced Monday that 1,989 cases of COVID-19 are currently active in the Mountain State. That’s a decrease of 209 since the last report. 

Locally, reported active case totals are: Upshur (26), Barbour (15), Lewis (16), Randolph (20) and Webster (6) counties. In Upshur County, that’s an unchanged number of active cases over the weekend.

Two additional deaths have been attributed to the disease, according to the DHHR – a 75-year old male from Cabell County and a 53-year old male from Cabell County. 

Please note that the National Center for Health Statistics will be unable to certify deaths from June 6-20 due to a system update affecting all 50 states. This will result in a decrease in deaths reported during this time period. 

“The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of June 13, 2022, there are currently 1,989 active COVID-19 cases statewide. There have been two deaths reported since the last report, with a total of 7,001 deaths attributed to COVID-19,” according to a press release. 

About 217 residents are hospitalized with the virus (54% unvaccinated, 46% vaccinated), with 25 currently in intensive care (52% unvaccinated, 48% vaccinated) and 3 on a ventilator (100% unvaccinated, 0% vaccinated). The daily percent positive was 9.47%. 

A total of 980,446 people have been vaccinated for COVID-19 in West Virginia, the DHHR said.  That’s about 55% of the state. About 509,575 booster doses have been administered.
