Nine new cases of coronavirus were reported in six Wyoming counties on Friday morning, boosting the state’s total case number to 162.
The Wyoming Department of Health said the new cases included Lincoln County’s first, reducing the number of counties with no infections to six.
Laramie County was still the county hardest hit by the virus with 37 cases. Teton County had 32; Fremont County had 27; Natrona had 21; Sheridan had 10; Johnson had eight; Campbell had six, Albany had four; Carbon, Converse and Sweetwater had three, and Washakie and Goshen counties had two. Lincoln, Park, Sublette and Uinta counties all had one case.
The Health Department also reported that of the 162 people infected since the virus reached Wyoming, 37 have fully recovered. A full recovery means seven days have passed with a patient showing no symptoms of the illness.
