Twenty-four West Virginians have died from COVID-19 since the last update from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR).
On Wednesday, the DHHR reported a weekly total of 8,067 deaths attributed to COVID-19 in West Virginia.
The state’s COVID-19 dashboard is now updated weekly to better reflect the current response to the pandemic. Virus statistics are now reported based on seven-day trends.
The agency also reported 1,017 cases of COVID-19 received in the last seven days.
However, the cases shown on the dashboard do not include all people with COVID-19 in West Virginia. Cases are reported by clinicians and laboratories while many people are using at-home tests which are not reported to the state.
According to the available data, there are 113 active COVID-19 cases statewide with 794 patients hospitalized.
The DHHR encouraged West Virginians to use the WV COVID-19 Vaccination Due Date Calculator, an online tool that helps individuals figure out when they may be due for a COVID-19 shot, making it easier to stay up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccination.
