CHARLESTOWN, W.Va (WDTV) - The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), reports 420 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours. During the same time period there were seven deaths.

This brings the total number of cases to 153,918 with 2,686 total deaths in the state.

The confirmed deaths include a 73-year old female from Pocahontas County, a 93-year old male from Jackson County, a 70-year old male from Lincoln County, a 76-year old female from Nicholas County, a 77-year old male from Logan County, a 63-year old female from Marion County and a 67-year old female from Brooke County.

“The length of this pandemic may cause some of us to grow weary of continued prevention practices. But for all families who have lost a loved one, each day it continues bears a painful reminder of someone loved who was lost,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “We must stop COVID-19 by working toward increased vaccination for community immunity in West Virginia.”
