State records 4th coronavirus death

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — An elderly man died Sunday at United Hospital Center in Clarksburg of COVID-19 caused by the coronavirus.

The man, a Harrison County resident, had underlying medical conditions and was in critical condition, health officials said.

The death marked the fourth coronavirus death in the Mountain State and the second at UHC. An 88-year-old Marion County woman died there last week. Deaths have also been recorded in Jackson and Monongalia counties.

Gov. Jim Justice sent out his condolences to the man’s family during his Monday media briefing at the state capitol.
