Coronavirus response coordinator Clay Marsh agreed that the recent trend has been a reason for rejoicing. Dr. Clay Marsh “It is really good news that we haven’t lost any West Virginians over the last several days to covid-19,” Marsh said.
The governor cautioned, though, that there’s still reason to be on guard. He later added, “I could not possibly be any happier. Congratulations West Virginia. Remember July the 20th. We hope and pray there will be more days like today.”
“Now we don’t want to drop out guard and we want to get more and more and more folks vaccinated,” he said. “This is the day that over the weekend we do not have one single death that I’ve got to report. We’ve come a long ways,” Justice said.
The state is currently recording 1,098 active cases. There are 85 people hospitalized with covid-19 in West Virginia, along with 33 ICU admissions. West Virginia statistics show 869,189 state residents are fully vaccinated, about 48 percent of the total population. West Virginia has recorded 2,919 deaths over the course of the pandemic.
“So we see what an important role these vaccines are making,” Marsh said. But Marsh warned that people should not let down their guard as the delta variant of covid-19 sweeps across the country. He said most of the current deaths nationally are among people who have not been vaccinated.
