West Virginia Cases

Total Positive Cases – 5,080

Total Lab Results reported – 233,490

After 17,543 more tests, the number of new positive cases is up 370 cases from the 4,710 cases reported at 10 a.m. Friday, July 17.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) is the official reporting agency for COVID-19, which in turn provides official case numbers to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Medical providers and laboratories are required to report positive test results to DHHR. The data in the daily reports include all known positive cases but underreports the total number of individuals tested as not all laboratories are able to electronically submit negative test results.
