Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by two on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 65 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 54 new laboratory-confirmed and 19 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 462 active cases
Laramie County had the most active cases, with 131; Campbell had 56; Sweetwater 46; Albany 45; Natrona 39; Fremont 28; Park 27; Uinta 23; Sheridan 16; Goshen and Teton 10; Platte six; Converse five; Carbon four; Crook and Johnson three; Big Horn Lincoln and Washakie two, and Hot Springs, Lincoln, Niobrara, Sublette and Weston each 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 59,870 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 58,689 have recovered.
