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 by 182 on Sunday as counties around the state reported 219 new confirmed cases.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said the number of probable cases also increased Sunday, by 17, while the number of reported recoveries among patients with probable or confirmed cases increased by 54.
The numbers left the state with 3,448 active cases of coronavirus, an increase of 182 from Saturday.
Albany County had 545 active cases; Laramie County had 512; Natrona County had 461; Campbell County had 375; Fremont County had 297; Park County had 277; Sheridan County had 243; Big Horn had 80; Converse had 77; Lincoln had 75; Platte had 73; Sweetwater had 58; Weston had 57; Goshen had 54; Carbon had 50; Teton and Uinta had 47; Crook had 38; Johnson had 34; Sublette had 20; Washakie had 18; Hot Springs had eight, and Niobrara had two.
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.
Reports of new laboratory-confirmed cases came from 16 counties, with Natrona County reporting the largest number of new cases at 44. Park County reported 41 new cases.
The number of probable cases seen since the first coronavirus case was diagnosed in Wyoming in mid-March stood at 1,645 Sunday, an increase of 17 from Saturday.
The number of people who have recovered from confirmed and probable coronavirus cases since the pandemic began was 7,525 on Sunday, an increase of 54 from Saturday.
