Three more deaths have been reported due to COVID-19, Raleigh County adds one more positive case

CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of 5:00 p.m., on May 11, 2020, there have been 64,165 laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 1,369 positive, 62,796 negative and 57 deaths.

DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 70-year old female from Jackson County, an 89-year old male from Kanawha County, and a 56-year old female from Nicholas County. “It’s with great sadness that we announce three more deaths as a result of COVID-19,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary.

These are considered official numbers reported to the state, which will in turn, be reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Delays may be experienced with the reporting of cases and deaths from the local health department to the state health department.
