Editor’s Note: This is a map of the active coronavirus cases in each county across Wyoming. The number of active cases is determined by subtracting the total number of recoveries seen since the illness first reached Wyoming in mid-March from the total number of confirmed and probable cases diagnosed during the same time period and taking into account deaths related to the disease.

The number of laboratory-confirmed coronavirus cases seen since the illness was first detected in March topped the 5,000 mark on Wednesday with the reporting of 98 new confirmed cases in 17 counties.

The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said the new cases pushed the total number of confirmed cases seen since the pandemic began to 5,046.

The new confirmed cases, combined with 29 new probable cases and 82 recoveries, left the state with 1,107 active cases.

As of Wednesday, Albany County had 204 active cases; Natrona had 166; Laramie had 91; Fremont had 90; Campbell had 83; Sheridan had 71; Teton had 69; Lincoln had 67; Park had 49; Sublette had 37; Converse had 33; Goshen had 31; Carbon had 21; Uinta had 17; Crook and Weston had 14; Big Horn, Johnson, Platte and Sweetwater had 11; Washakie had four, and Hot Springs had two.

The active cases were divided among 936 people with laboratory-confirmed cases and 171 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.

Seventeen counties reported 98 new confirmed cases Wednesday: Albany, Campbell, Carbon, Converse, Crook, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie, Lincoln, Natrona, Park, Platte, Sheridan, Sublette, Sweetwater, Teton and Weston. Natrona County had the largest increase in cases at 18.

The number of probable cases in the state went up by 29 on Wednesday to total 902 since the pandemic began.

Of the 5,948 people diagnosed with confirmed or probable cases, 4,791 have recovered, the Health Department said, an increase of 82 from Tuesday.
