As reported during Monday’s COVID-19 briefing, the state surveillance system experienced an upgrade which caused a delay in cases being reported to the dashboard. Seven hundred cases from the 5-day period beginning last Thursday, August 12, 2021, were reported on the dashboard today. In addition, there were 12 new deaths reported today that were delayed due to the same system upgrade.
DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 64-year old male from Mason County, a 65-year old female from Randolph County, an 84-year old female from Kanawha County, a 77-year old female from Berkeley County, a 44-year old male from Kanawha County, a 79-year old female from Wayne County, a 41-year old female from Summers County, an 80-year old female from Nicholas County, a 79-year old female from Marshall County, a 75-year old female from Cabell County, a 72-year old female from Logan County, and a 79-year old female from Lewis County.
