DHHR confirms another death, corrects death recorded twice

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of 10:00 a.m., November 8, 2020, there have been 846,772 total confirmatory laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 28,404 total cases and 502 deaths.

Please note a death reported on Thursday, November 5, of a 90-year old female from Summers County was erroneously reported yesterday, Saturday, November 7, so the total deaths stand at 502. There were spelling errors and a wrong birth month reported to DHHR which caused the duplication of reporting.

DHHR has confirmed the death of an 83-year old male from Kanawha County. “As many West Virginians are growing tired of COVID-19, we must stay vigilant in our efforts to prevent further spread in our communities,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “Our condolences are extended to this family during their time of grief.”

Please note that delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR. As case surveillance continues at the local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state border to be tested.
