Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 58 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 30 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 67 new laboratory-confirmed and 21 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 503 active cases, up 58 from Tuesday.
Laramie County tops the state for the number of active cases again with 115; Fremont had 81; Teton 68; Sweetwater 46; Lincoln 32; Natrona 25; Campbell 22; Uinta 19; Carbon 14; Albany 13; Park 12; Sheridan and Sublette 10; Goshen nine; Big Horn eight; Converse six; Crook and Johnson three; Hot Springs, Platte and Weston two each; Washakie one; and Niobrara holds the lowest at 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 55,887 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 54,689 have recovered.
