Wyoming’s confirmed coronavirus case count increased by 11 on Thursday to total 415.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said new cases were reported Thursday in Campbell, Fremont, Laramie, Sweetwater and Teton counties.
In Fremont County, the county hardest hit by the coronavirus, the case count increased by six to total 108.
Laramie County had 98 cases; Teton had 65; Natrona had 39; Campbell had 15; Converse had 13; Sheridan had 12; Johnson and Sweetwater had 11; Albany had eight; Lincoln and Uinta had six; Crook and Washakie had five; Carbon had four; Goshen had three, and Big Horn had two. Hot Springs, Niobrara, Park and Sublette counties each had one.
The number of recoveries also increased slightly, growing by two from Wednesday. The Department of Health said 373 people both with confirmed cases of coronavirus and suspected cases have recovered.
The number includes 269 recoveries among those with confirmed cases and 104 recoveries among those with “probable” cases — defined as people who have not been tested for coronavirus, but have shown symptoms of the illness and have been in contact with someone who has a confirmed case.
State figures show there have been 144 “probable” cases of coronavirus in the state since the first case was reported in Wyoming in March.
