Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 92 on Wednesday from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 92 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 62 new laboratory-confirmed and 33 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 552 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases Wednesday, 272, an increase of 50 from Tuesday; Natrona had 57; Sweetwater 56; Albany 40; Uinta 23; Campbell 21; Park 12; Fremont nine; Sheridan and Teton eight; Goshen and Lincoln seven; Carbon, Converse and Platte six; Big Horn and Johnson four; Hot Springs and Weston two, and Crook and Niobrara had one.
Sublette and Washakie counties had no active cases on Wedneday.
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 62,290 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 60,991 have recovered.
