A third West Virginian has died in connection with Covid-19.

Various reports indicate a Sundale Nursing Home resident died Friday at a Morgantown hospital. He was 76.

A social media post from a family member said the man fought to the end and actually had beaten the virus but other complications claimed his life.

The man was one of 21 Sundale residents that contracted the virus two weeks ago. Two remain hospitalized while 17 are being treated in a dedicated wing at Sundale. Eight Sundale staff members who tested positive are recovering in quarantine at home.
