Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 42 on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 84 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 79 new laboratory-confirmed and 52 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 617 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 214. Sweetwater had 46; Uinta 38; Campbell 37; Converse 35; Fremont 27; Albany and Natrona 25; Teton 24; Lincoln 22; Carbon 19; Park and Sublette 18; Platte 16; Hot Springs 10; Goshen nine; Johnson and Sheridan eight; Weston six; Washakie five; Big Horn four; Niobrara two, and Crook 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 63,840 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 62,457 have recovered.
