The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of June 8, 2022, there are currently 2,272 active COVID-19 cases statewide. There have been four deaths reported since the last report, with a total of 6,997 deaths attributed to COVID-19.
DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 64-year old male from Wetzel County, a 54-year old male from Lewis County, and a 67-year old female from Kanawha County. An additional death reported on the dashboard as a result of the Bureau for Public Health’s continuing data reconciliation with the official death certificate is a 42-year old male from Monongalia County. This death occurred in December 2021.
“We are saddened by the loss of more West Virginians and extend deepest condolences to these grieving families,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “Let’s continue taking every precaution we can to stop the spread of this disease, including scheduling a COVID-19 vaccination or booster for yourself and all eligible family members.”
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.
