Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 74 on Monday as the state’s reported the recoveries exceeded the new cases
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received new reports of 213 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Monday
At the same time, the state reported 110 new laboratory-confirmed and 29 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 458 active cases, a decrease of 74 from Friday, marking the first time active Wyoming cases dropped below 500 since mid-September
Teton reported 88 active cases; Laramie had 70; Sweetwater 67; Fremont 45; Natrona 40; Uinta 34; Lincoln 18; Sheridan 14; Campbell 13; Park 11; Albany 10; Carbon nine; Big Horn, Goshen and Platte had eight each; Sublette and Washakie report four; Converse had 3; Crook, Hot Springs, Johnson and Weston counties had one each, while Niobrara reported zero.
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 54,903 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 53,763 have recovered.
