West Virginia COVID-19 Admissions, Cases Continue to Rise |  WV News

As of Tuesday’s report, that count was 28,035. The metric is approaching its previous all-time high, having eclipsed 29,000 in January during the last major surge of COVID-19. The high number of new cases has resulted in the continued growth in the state’s number of active cases. With fewer than 10,000 new test results having been received, the state’s daily positive testing percentage reported Tuesday was 15.87%.

In total, the state reported 12,811 cases in that seven-day window. For the seven-day period ending Monday, the state averaged more than 1,800 new cases per day.

The 5-11 age group represents 11.33% of those cases, the third-highest among the various age groups — though the two groups with more cases are age ranges encompassing 10 years (ages 31-40, 14.50%, and 41-50, 13.18%). The 12-15 age group makes up another 8.72% of cases, while the 16-20 group is 9.18%. According to the agency, another 1,473 new cases of COVID-19 were identified in the prior 24 hours.

All 55 counties have a red-level infection rate. Also continuing to rise are the state’s hospitalization metrics. The map displays a color based on two metrics — infection rate, which is a population-adjusted rolling average of new cases, and positivity rate, which is the percentage of positive test results. Each metric has a different range for each color, and the map displays the lower of the two colors.

On the County Alert System, 44 of the state’s 55 counties remain in the red, the highest alert level. Eight counties are in orange, while one is in gold and two are yellow. No counties are in green, the lowest alert level. Because the daily rate has been continually above the cumulative rate, the cumulative rate is increasing as well. As of Tuesday, it was 5.54%.
