Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 98 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 128 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 25 new laboratory-confirmed and 5 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 408 active cases, down 98 from Wednesday
Laramie reported the most cases, with 75; Teton had 74; Fremont 54; Sweetwater 42; Natrona 27; Lincoln and Uinta each had 25; Park 18; Campbell 13; Albany 11; Sheridan eight; Carbon and Goshen seven; Big Horn six; Platte five; Crook and Johnson three; Converse, Hot Springs and Sublette had two each; Weston one; while Niobrara and Washakie shared the distinction of having zero active cases.
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 55,506 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 54,378 have recovered.
