Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 37 on Thursday as the state’s reported the recoveries exceeded the new cases
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received new reports of 106 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday
At the same time, the state reported 60 new laboratory-confirmed and 9 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 522 active cases, a decrease of 37 from Wednesday.
Laramie County had 74 active cases; Sweetwater County had 72; Teton County had 69; Uinta had 45; Fremont had 44; Natrona had 37; Carbon had 32; Lincoln had 25; Campbell had 24; Park had 21; Albany had 18; Sheridan had 14; Goshen and Platte had 10; Big Horn had seven; Johnson, Sublette, Washakie and Weston had four, while Converse, Crook, Hot Springs and Niobrara counties each had one active case
Active cases are determined by adding the total confirmed and probable coronavirus cases diagnosed since the illness first surfaced in Wyoming on March 12, 2020, 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.
The new confirmed and probable cases brought to 54,685 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 53,481 have recovered.
