West Virginia Has Smashed Weekly Records for Confirmed Coronavirus Cases

November 10, 2020

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia has smashed weekly records for confirmed coronavirus cases, while the death toll was pushed higher Monday after more than two dozen previously unreported fatalities were discovered, health officials said.

The state reported 2,418 new positive cases over the six-day period ending Saturday, a 5% increase from the previous week’s record of 2,304 confirmed cases set in a seven-day period. Figures for Sunday were not posted due to a technical glitch, and the record easily could be adjusted higher as daily probable cases are confirmed.

The state has set weekly high marks in four of the past five weeks.

Health officials reported a record 44 virus-related deaths last week alone, and a revision made Monday to include previously unreported virus fatalities brought the state’s death toll to at least 530.
