The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of June 14, 2022, there are currently 1,854 active COVID-19 cases statewide. There have been 12 deaths reported since the last report, with a total of 7,013 deaths attributed to COVID-19.
DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 91-year old female from Fayette County, an 82-year old male from Kanawha County, an 83-year old male from Fayette County, a 93-year old male from Harrison County, and a 74-year old male from Fayette County.
Included in the total deaths reported on the dashboard as a result of the Bureau for Public Health’s continuing data reconciliation with the official death certificate are a 48-year old male from Mercer County, an 88-year old female from Ohio County, an 85-year old female from Wyoming County, a 60-year old male from Cabell County, a 93-year old female from Ohio County, an 87-year old female from Ohio County, and a 70-year old female from Randolph County. These deaths range from February through May 2022, with two deaths occurring in December 2021.
“Today’s news of more losses is a heartbreaking reminder of the threat this virus presents,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “We extend our sympathy to all of the loved ones impacted by these deaths.”
Please note that from June 6-20, 2022, the National Center for Health Statistics will be unable to certify deaths due to a system update affecting all 50 states. This may impact West Virginia's ability to report COVID-19 deaths. The Bureau for Public Health’s Office of Epidemiology and Prevention Services will continue to certify and report deaths using the death reconciliation process; however, there may be a decrease in deaths reported during this time period.
