The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced Thursday that 3,108 cases of COVID-19 are currently active in the Mountain State. That’s an increase of 260 since the last report; active cases have now tripled in two weeks.

Locally, COVID-19 cases are active in Upshur (51), Barbour (18), Lewis (63), Randolph (45) and Webster (20) counties. In Upshur County, that’s an increase of 15 active cases in the last 24 hours.

Five additional deaths have been attributed to the disease, according to the DHHR – a 61-year old male from Harrison County, a 60-year old female from Raleigh County, a 71-year old female from Upshur County, a 79-year old female from Cabell County, and a 74-year old male from Kanawha County.
