WV DHHR COVID-19 update – June 11

CHARLESTON The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of June 11, 2021, there have been 2,936,873 total confirmatory laboratory results received for COVID-19, with 162,939 total cases and 2,849 deaths.

Many types of electronic respiratory lab results are submitted to DHHR’s Bureau for Public Health on a regular basis. With a continuing effort to be transparent, a full historic review of the total confirmatory laboratory results received to date was conducted to specifically screen out the non-COVID-related lab results submitted, resulting in the overall number of lab results received on the COVID dashboard decreasing by 29,531. Please note this does not affect the number of total COVID cases, only the total number of lab results received.

DHHR has confirmed the death of a 64-year-old male from Marshall County. “As we send our condolences to this family, keep in mind that vaccines save lives,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “I urge you to choose the COVID vaccine for yourself and for your children age 12 and older.”

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. Such is the case of Boone County in this report. Please visit www.coronavirus.wv.gov for more detailed information.
