Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased 87 on Wednesday from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of nine recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 82 new laboratory-confirmed and 14 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 644 active cases.
Laramie County’s active cases increased by 44 Wednesday, to 300. Sweetwater had 52; Natrona 33; Teton 27; Albany and Carbon 26; Campbell 25; Lincoln 23; Fremont and Uinta 21; Converse 17; Platte 14; Park and Sublette 13; Crook and Hot Springs six; Sheridan five; Weston four; Big Horn, Goshen and Johnson three; Washakie two, and Niobrara County 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 63,331 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 61,927 have recovered.
