WV DHHR COVID-19 update – July 27

CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of 5:00 p.m., on July 27, 2020, there have been 265,892 total confirmatory laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 6,054 total cases and 106 deaths.

DHHR has confirmed the deaths of a 60-year old female from Wyoming County, an 84-year old female from Mineral County and a 93-year old female from Brooke County. “The passing of these three West Virginians is reported with great sadness and we extend our sympathies to their loved ones,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary.

In alignment with updated definitions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the dashboard includes probable cases which are individuals that have symptoms and either serologic (antibody) or epidemiologic (e.g., a link to a confirmed case) evidence of disease, but no confirmatory test.

Such is the case of Boone, Cabell, Marion, Mineral, Ohio, Summers, Taylor, Wayne, and Wetzel counties in this report.

Please note that delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR.
