The number of people to recover from the coronavirus since the illness was first detected in Wyoming in March topped 3,000 on Wednesday, according to Department of Health figures.

The department, in its daily coronavirus update, said 63 people were reported as having recovered from laboratory-confirmed and probable coronavirus cases since March, bringing the total number of recoveries to 3,028.

The recoveries, mixed with an increase of 50 in new cases, left the state with 619 people still stick with coronavirus, a decline of 13 from Tuesday.

As of Wednesday, Carbon County had 127 active cases; Fremont had 94; Laramie had 75; Albany had 45; Park had 39; Natrona had 38; Sheridan had 37; Teton had 32; Campbell and Goshen had 28; Washakie had 17; Sweetwater had 16; Converse, Lincoln and Uinta had seven; Sublette had six; Hot Springs had five; Crook and Weston had four, and Big Horn, Johnson and Platte had one.

Niobrara County continued to have no active cases.

The active cases were found in 536 people with laboratory-confirmed cases and 83 with probable cases.

Active cases are determined by adding the total confirmed and probable coronavirus cases diagnosed since the illness first surfaced in Wyoming on March 12, subtracting the number of recoveries during the same period among patients with both confirmed and probable cases and taking into account the number of deaths attributed to the illness.

The number of new confirmed cases in the state went up by 46, with reports of new cases in 13 counties. Fremont County saw the largest increase in cases at nine. The increase puts the number of laboratory-confirmed cases seen since mid-March ad 3,684.

The number of probable cases, those where the patient has coronavirus symptoms and has been in contact with someone with a confirmed case but has not been tested, went up by four to total 549 seen since the pandemic began.

Of the 3,684 people to be infected since mid-March, 3,028 have recovered, including 2,562 people with confirmed cases and 466 people with probable cases.
