Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 64 on Wednesday from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 33 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 84 new laboratory-confirmed and 13 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 527 active cases.
Laramie County has the most active cases, with 181; Sweetwater had 66; Campbell 61; Natrona 33; Park 27; Uinta 25; Albany 24; Fremont and Sheridan 22; Platte 14; Teton 10; Converse seven; Big Horn and Carbon six; Goshen and Johnson four; Crook, Lincoln and Weston three; Sublette and Washakie 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 60,941 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 59,689 have recovered.
