Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by four on Friday from Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 77 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 70 new laboratory-confirmed and 10 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 531 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 144; Sweetwater had 84; Campbell 64; Natrona 38; Uinta 34; Albany and Sheridan 26; Fremont and Park 24; Platte 19; Teton nine; Big Horn and Johnson seven; Carbon, Goshen and Sublette four; Crook and Weston three; Converse and Lincoln two, and Hot Springs, Niobrara and Washakie 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 60,623 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 59,372 have recovered.
