Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 10 on Thursday from Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received new reports of 113 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 87 new laboratory-confirmed and 16 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 516 active cases.
Albany County had the highest number of active cases at 93; Laramie County had 82; Sweetwater had 60; Natrona 44; Sheridan 40; Uinta 37; Park 29; Campbell 28; Teton 18; Fremont 13; Carbon 12; Lincoln nine; Platte and Washakie eight; Big Horn and Goshen seven; Niobrara six; Sublette five; Converse four; Crook three; while Hot Springs, Johnson and Weston had one.
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 58,996 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 57,768 have recovered.
