Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 31 on Wednesday from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 26 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 44 new laboratory-confirmed and 14 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 526 active cases. This is the highest number of active cases since March 5.
Albany County had 100 active cases; Laramie County had 94; Sweetwater had 60; Natrona 45; Uinta 39; Sheridan 36; Campbell 28; Park 20; Teton 18; Carbon 15; Lincoln 11; Fremont 10; Big Horn and Sublette eight; Washakie seven; Goshen and Niobrara six; Platte five; Converse four; Crook three; while Hot Springs, Johnson and Weston reported one active case.
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 58,893 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 57,665 have recovered.
