Editor’s Note: Figures received from the DHHR in West Virginia include cases that have already been resolved. Therefore, these counts should be considered historical cases rather than active cases.

Editor’s Note 2: The total number of cases confirmed by the DHHR now includes probable cases, which are individuals with symptoms and either serological (antibody) or epidemiological (e.g. link to a confirmed case) evidence of disease, but no confirmatory test.
