Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 55 from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 14 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 69 new laboratory-confirmed and five new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 464 active cases, up 55 from Tuesday.
Laramie County continues to have the most active cases at 101; Teton had 68; Fremont had 58; Sweetwater 47; Lincoln 39; Natrona 33; Albany 21; Uinta 20; Sheridan 18; Campbell 15; Park nine; Sublette eight; Goshen five; Big Horn, Carbon and Johnson had four each; Platte and Weston three; Crook two, and Hot Springs and Washakie counties each had one. Converse and Niobrara had no active cases as of Wednesday.
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 56,310 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,146 have recovered.
