Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by three on Thursday from Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 92 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 72 new laboratory-confirmed and 23 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 436 active cases.
Laramie County had the highest number of active cases, 105; while Albany County had 64; Natrona 48; Sweetwater 38; Teton 37; Campbell 25; Fremont 21; Goshen 17; Sheridan 15; Carbon and Uinta 14; Big Horn 12; Park seven; Sublette five; Lincoln and Platte three; Hot Springs, Johnson and Weston two, and Converse and Crook one.
Niobrara and Washakie counties 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 57,613 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 56,472 have recovered.
