Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased 18 to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 74 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 74 new laboratory-confirmed and 18 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 540 active cases.
Laramie County had the highest number of active cases at 266; Sweetwater had 56; Natrona 48; Albany 34; Uinta 22; Campbell 19; Carbon 14; Lincoln and Sheridan 10; Goshen and Teton eight; Converse, Fremont and Park seven; Platte and Weston six; Johnson four; Big Horn three; Hot Springs two, and Crook, Niobrara and Washakie one.
Sublette County had no active cases on Friday.
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 62,445 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 61,158 have recovered.
