A Big Horn County man has been listed as the 30th person in Wyoming to die from the coronavirus, the Wyoming Department of Health announced Thursday.
The man previously tested positive for the virus. He was an older adult who had health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to the coronavirus.
He’d been hospitalized in another state.
Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 30 coronavirus-related deaths, 2,627 lab-confirmed cases and 492 probable cases reported.
Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s coronavirus-related death total based on official death certificate information and residency.
If the disease did not cause or contribute to the person’s death, that person’s death is not reflected in Wyoming’s count of coronavirus-related deaths even if the person is known to be positive for the virus.
