Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 50 from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 39 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 71 new laboratory-confirmed and 19 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 398 active cases, up 50 from Monday.
Laramie county’s active cases are back up again, to 103, while Sweetwater had 49; Teton 39; Fremont 38; Albany 34; Lincoln 29; Natrona 24; Sublette 18; Uinta 17; Campbell 16; Park seven; Sheridan six; Goshen five; Carbon and Weston three; Converse and Johnson two; Big Horn, Hot Springs and Washakie had one each, and Crook, Niobrara and Platte counties had 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 56,619 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,520 have recovered.
