Almost half of the Wyoming residents to test positive for the coronavirus since February have fully recovered from the illness, according to the Wyoming Department of Health.

The department’s statistics showed that 105 of Wyoming’s coronavirus patients have recovered, which means they have gone three days with no symptoms and have taken no medication for fever reduction.

Since February, the state has confirmed 239 cases of the virus.

The highest number of recoveries, 22, was seen in the two counties with the highest number of confirmed cases — Laramie with 54 and Teton with 50.

Recoveries were recorded in every county where the disease has been detected with the exception of Crook, Lincoln and Niobrara.

Of Wyoming’s 239 cases, only 15.5% of the patients — about 37 — have required hospitalization, according to Health Department figures.

The department also reported that the majority of those with confirmed cases — 46% or 117 people — caught the illness through contact with another person known to be infected.

The biggest share of coronavirus patients fall within the age range of 60 to 69, the department said, about 20.9% or 50 patients.

Those age 50 to 59 make up the next largest group at about 40 patients — 16.9% — while 37 patients, 15.5%, are age 40 to 49.

The department said women make up a slight majority of those with the illness — 51.5%.
