The following are the number of reported cases of COVID-19 in the Northern Panhandle counties as reported by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (WV DHHR).
AS OF MAY 12, 2020
*At the WV Governor’s COVID-19 briefing on April 26, it was announced that the DHHR’s epidemiology team conducted a reverse death match by pulling official death certificates. Due to this review, there has been a reduction of 162 deaths from the dashboard as these death certificates did not officially list COVID-19 as the cause of death.
