Wyoming’s total of active coronavirus cases increased by 45 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 12 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 46 new laboratory-confirmed and 11 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 502 active cases.
Laramie County had the most active cases at 88, while Albany County’s total went up by two, to total 78; Natrona had 52; Sweetwater 51; Campbell and Teton 32; Fremont 27; Sublette and Uinta 22; Lincoln 16; Park and Sheridan 15; Weston 13; Carbon 12; Converse and Washakie five; Crook and Goshen four; Big Horn and Johnson three; Platte two, and Hot Springs one.
Niobrara County had no 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 57,127 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,922 have recovered.
