The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming climbed back over 1,100 on Wednesday with the reporting of more than 130 new confirmed cases of the virus.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, reported 135 new laboratory-confirmed cases Wednesday.
At the same time, the state received reports of 25 new probable cases and 68 recoveries among those with either confirmed or probable cases of coronavirus, leaving Wyoming with 1,165 active cases, an increase of 92 from Tuesday.
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.
New confirmed cases were reported in 18 counties. Carbon County saw the highest increase in new cases at 49, followed by Johnson County at 32.
The increase in confirmed and probable cases brought the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the illness was first detected in Wyoming in March to 52,288.
Of those, 50,499 have recovered, according to Department of Health figures.
