Wyoming’s active coronavirus case count increased by 13 from Wednesday to Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Thursday of 111 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 104 new laboratory-confirmed and 20 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 657 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 294. Sweetwater had 51; Natrona 30; Campbell 29; Albany 28; Fremont and Teton 27; Uinta 22; Carbon and Lincoln 21; Platte 20; Converse and Park 17; Sublette 12; Hot Springs eight; Crook and Sheridan six; Washakie five; Goshen, Johnson and Weston four; Big Horn three, 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 63,455 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 62,038 have recovered.
