DHHR confirms 36 additional COVID-19 deaths Thursday following system outage

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) reported Thursday that there is 1,924 active COVID-19 cases across the state.

Since the last update there have been 36 deaths reported. These deaths range from February through June 2022.
