Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased 72 to start the week Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 257 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 125 new laboratory-confirmed and 72 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 476 active cases.
Laramie County remains continued to have the highest number of active cases Tuesday at 267; Sweetwater had 38; Natrona 32; Uinta 23; Albany 21; Carbon 18; Campbell 14; Lincoln nine; Platte eight; Teton seven; Fremont and Weston six; Converse and Goshen five; Sheridan four; Big Horn and Park three; Crook and Hot Springs two, and Niobrara, Sublette and Washakie had one.
Johnson County had no active cases 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 62,642 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 61,415 have recovered.
