Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 86 to end the week Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 156 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 53 new laboratory-confirmed and 17 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 532 active cases
Laramie County reported 120 active cases; Sweetwater had 71; Albany 70; Campbell 66; Natrona 41; Park 40; Fremont 27; Sheridan 18; Uinta 17; Teton 16; Goshen nine; Carbon seven; Big Horn six; Converse, Crook and Platte four; Johnson and Sublette three; Washakie two, and Hot Springs, Lincoln, Niobrara 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 59,660 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 58,415 have recovered.
