The US confirmed coronavirus cases hitting 11 million.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources confirmed 801 new COVID-19 cases and three additional deaths in its report on Monday, as the number of cases in the state continue to rise.

Gov. Jim Justice is facing backlash over tightening COVID-19 requirements.

Anti-mask activists' claims that he's acting like a 'communist or a dictator.'

Justice said those in the state who believe their constitutional rights are being threatened by his mandate that orders everyone to wear a mask in public buildings are just being “silly.”

“It is just silly believing we are stripping away your constitutional freedoms,” Justice said during a news conference Monday, “It’s just ridiculous, or the next thing they are going to get our guns – it is preposterous beyond belief.”

More than 2,000 new COVID-19 cases and a total of 18 deaths were announced by the DHHR over the weekend, with 1,153 cases and nine deaths announced on Saturday, and 867 new cases and nine deaths announced on Sunday.
