Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 78 from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of three new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 54 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 476 active cases, up 78 from Tuesday.
Laramie County’s active cases are up again to 123, while Sweetwater had 53; Albany 50; Fremont 41; Teton 37; Natrona 32; Lincoln 31; Campbell 28; Uinta 22; Sublette 19; Park 10; Weston seven; Carbon, Goshen and Sheridan had five; Converse three; Johnson two, and Big Horn, Hot Springs and Washakie had one each. 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 56,700 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,523 have recovered.
