Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 69 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 102 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 24 new laboratory-confirmed and 9 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 434 active cases, down 69 from Wednesday.
Laramie county drops 19 cases, but continues to have the most number of active cases with 96; Teton had 63; Fremont 60; Sweetwater 44; Lincoln 30; Campbell and Natrona 22; Uinta 21; Albany 12; Carbon 11; Goshen and Sublette nine; Big Horn and Park seven; Converse six; Crook, Platte and Sheridan had three; Hot Springs and Weston two; Johnson and Washakie one; while Niobrara continues to hold at zero reported 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 55,920 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 54,791 have recovered.
