Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by five from on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 83 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 77 new laboratory-confirmed and 19 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 460 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 222; Natrona 53; Sweetwater 42; Albany 32; Uinta 22; Campbell 15; Park 13; Fremont nine; Teton eight; Converse, Goshen, Platte and Sheridan six; Carbon and Lincoln five; Big Horn two, and Crook, Hot Springs, Niobrara and Weston had one.
Sublette and Washakie counties had no active cases on 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 62,195 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 60,988 have recovered.
