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 climbed by 407 on Sunday as the state reported 572 new laboratory-confirmed cases.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, also said 41 new probable cases were reported Sunday, while reports of recoveries from the illness increased by 206.
The numbers left Wyoming with 9,897 active cases, an increase of 407 from Saturday.
Natrona County had 1,818 active cases Sunday; Albany County had 1,535; Laramie County had 1,498; Campbell had 1,247; Fremont had 692; Park had 424; Sheridan had 375; Sweetwater had 333; Goshen had 254; Uinta had 245; Teton had 216; Lincoln had 205; Platte had 181; Weston had 174; Carbon had 133; Converse had 124; Crook had 100; Johnson had 89; Big Horn had 69; Washakie had 64; Sublette had 63; Niobrara had 35, and Hot Springs had 23.
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.
Every Wyoming county but Park reported new laboratory-confirmed cases Sunday. Laramie County had the highest number of new cases at 103, while Natrona Count had 93.
The increase in confirmed cases brought to 19,298 the number of laboratory-confirmed cases seen since the first coronavirus case was detected in Wyoming in mid-March.
The 41 new probable cases pushed the total of probable cases seen since mid-March to 3,196. A probable case is one where a patient has coronavirus symptoms and has been in contact with someone with a confirmed case but has not been tested for the illness.
Reports of recoveries from confirmed and probable coronavirus cases went up to 12,453 on Sunday, an increase of 206 from Saturday.
