Wyoming’s coronavirus-related death count climbed again this week, reaching 53 total deaths in the state attributed to the illness.

The Wyoming Department of Health announced the three deaths in a release on Thursday. They included:

  • An adult Natrona County man who died this week. The man wasn’t hospitalized but was known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to the virus;
  • An adult Campbell County man who died last week after being hospitalized. The man was also known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to the virus, and
  • An older adult Natrona County man who died last month after being hospitalized. The man was also known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to the virus.

Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s coronavirus-related death total based on official death certificate information.

If death certificates do not describe the coronavirus as either causing or contributing to a person’s death, those deaths are not included in Wyoming’s count of coronavirus-related deaths.

Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 53 coronavirus-related deaths, 5,170 lab-confirmed cases and 913 probable cases reported since the pandemic began.
