Spreadsheet of COVID-19 Cases and Deaths in West Virginia

We've created a Google Sheets spreadsheet tracking the daily number of reported cases in West Virginia of COVID-19 and deaths from COVID-19. The chart includes total number of tests administered statewide, along with percentages of tests positive, percentage of deaths compared to test administered, and percentages of deaths compared to those who tested positive. The spreadsheet tracks cases from March 2020 to May 6,  2021.

The numbers are taken from daily reports by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) at https://dhhr.wv.gov/.

COVID-19 Cases and Deaths in West Virginia Google Sheets spreadsheet created by the Ohio County Public Library with numbers reported by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) at https://dhhr.wv.gov/.

*NOTE - Disclaimer from the WV DHHR: Discrepancies in case numbers from day to day are the result of case surveillance revealing 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.

**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.
