Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 54 on Wednesday from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Tuesday of 14 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 40 new laboratory-confirmed and 29 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 512 active cases.
Laramie County continues to top the state for active cases with 137; Sweetwater had 83; Campbell 58; Natrona 39; Fremont 32; Albany 31; Park 30; Uinta 25; Sheridan 24; Platte nine; Teton seven; Big Horn, Crook, and Goshen six; Johnson five; Converse, and Weston three; Lincoln, Sublette and Washakie two, and Hot Springs and Niobrara had one.
Carbon County had no active cases as of Tuesday.
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 60,433 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 59,201 have recovered.
