Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by six to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Friday of 90 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 76 new laboratory-confirmed and 20 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 515 active cases
Laramie County remained the county with the highest number of active cases at 113; Sweetwater had 71; Campbell 63; Natrona 50; Albany 47; Fremont 28; Park 26; Uinta 24; Sheridan 19; Platte and Teton 12; Goshen 10; Crook eight; Big Horn seven; Converse and Sublette five; Johnson four; Carbon three; Lincoln, Washakie and Weston two, and Hot Springs and Niobrara had one active case each.
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 60,144 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 58,910 have recovered.
