West Virginia reports 2,585 active COVID-19 cases, five new deaths on Tuesday

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources announced Tuesday that 2,585 cases of COVID-19 are currently active in the Mountain State. That’s an increase of 105 since the last report.

Locally, COVID-19 cases are active in Upshur (33), Barbour (17), Lewis (44), Randolph (31) and Webster (21) counties. In Upshur County, that’s an increase of five active cases in the last 24 hours and more than triple the low of 10 cases hit on July 13.

Five additional deaths have been attributed to the disease, according to the DHHR – a 57-year old male from Kanawha County, an 82-year old male from Wayne County, a 78-year old female from Wayne County, a 78-year old male from Monongalia County, and a 68-year old male from Berkeley County.

The daily percent positive was 7.26%.
