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 active coronavirus cases in Wyoming increased to 2,341 on Sunday with the report of 194 new confirmed cases and 15 new probable cases.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said 20 counties reported new laboratory-confirmed coronavirus cases Sunday.
At the same time, the number of coronavirus recoveries reported went up by 68, leaving the state with 2,341 active cases, an increase of 141 from Saturday.
Albany County had 392 active cases; Laramie County had 356; Natrona County had 309; Campbell and Fremont had 186; Park had 178; Sheridan had 148; Lincoln had 95; Big Horn had 72; Converse had 57; Carbon had 47; Goshen had 42; Weston had 41; Teton had 39; Sweetwater had 34; Platte had 33; Uinta had 32; Crook had 31; Johnson had 29; Washakie had 19; Sublette had 10; Hot Springs had four and Niobrara had one.
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.
Of the 20 counties reporting new laboratory-confirmed cases Sunday, Albany County had the highest number of new cases at 33, followed by Campbell County at 28.
The growth in confirmed cases brings the total of such cases seen since the first case was diagnosed in mid-March to 7,673.
The number of probable cases grew by 15 Sunday to total 1,352 since the pandemic began.
The reports of 68 additional recoveries brings to 6,627 the number of people to recover from confirmed or probable cases of coronavirus since mid-March.
