COVID-19 Daily Update 8-1-2020



The West Virginia Department of Health and
Human Resources (DHHR)
reports as of 10:00 a.m., on August 1,
2020, there have been
287,084 total
confirmatory
laboratory results received for COVID-19, with
6,735 total
cases and 116 deaths.



 





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.

Barbour (29/0), Berkeley (629/22), Boone (76/0), Braxton (8/0), Brooke

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 Jefferson County in this report.



 



Please
note that delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the
local health department to DHHR.
Visit
the dashboard at
www.coronavirus.wv.gov for more detailed information.



 



On July 24, 2020, Gov. Jim Justice
announced that DHHR, the agency in charge of reporting the number of COVID-19
cases, will transition from providing twice-daily updates to one report every
24 hours.
This is effective August 1, 2020. The next report will be
posted at 10:00 a.m., August 2, 2020.
