CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reports as of June 10, 2022, there are currently 2,198 active COVID-19 cases statewide. There has been one death reported since the last report, with a total of 6,999 deaths attributed to COVID-19.
“We are deeply saddened to report the death of another West Virginian due to COVID-19,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary. “As we extend our sympathies to this family, we must do everything we can to stop the pandemic including getting vaccinated and boosted.”
Please note that from June 6-20, 2022, the National Center for Health Statistics will be unable to certify deaths due to a system update affecting all 50 states. This may impact West Virginia’s ability to report COVID-19 deaths. The Bureau for Public Health’s Office of Epidemiology and Prevention Services will continue to certify and report deaths using the death reconciliation process; however, there may be a decrease in deaths reported during this time period.
