Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 15 to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 86 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 67 new laboratory-confirmed and 34 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 595 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 303. Sweetwater had 51; Natrona 41; Albany 28; Carbon 24; Uinta 20; Platte and Teton 19; Lincoln 16; Fremont 15; Campbell 13; Converse and Weston seven; Park and Sheridan six; Sublette five; Big Horn four; Crook three; Hot Springs, Johnson and Washakie two, and Goshen and Niobrara counties had one.
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 62,966 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming.
Of those, 61,620 have recovered.
