Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 38 to start the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 210 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday. At the same time, the state reported 141 new laboratory-confirmed and 31 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 557 active cases.
Laramie County had 283 active cases; Sweetwater had 45; Natrona 31; Teton 22; Albany 21; Carbon 20; Fremont and Uinta 19; Lincoln 17; Campbell 16; Platte 14; Converse 11; Park and Sublette seven, Crook, Sheridan and Weston five; Big Horn, Goshen, Johnson and Washakie two, and Hot Springs 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 63,138 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 61,830 have recovered.
