Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 27 on Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 75 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 98 new laboratory-confirmed and 4 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 435 active cases, up 27 from Thursday.
Teton reported the most active cases, with 78; Fremont had 66; Laramie 64; Sweetwater 54; Uinta 29; Lincoln and Natrona 25; Park 20; Campbell 17; Albany 10; Carbon nine; Goshen and Sheridan seven; Big Horn six; Platte and Sublette five; Crook 3; Hot Springs and Johnson two; Weston one, while Converse, Niobrara and Washakie report zero cases each.
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 55,581 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 54,453 have recovered.
