Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 65 on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 97 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 114 new laboratory-confirmed and 58 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 781 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 179. Sweetwater had 64; Natrona 57; Campbell 54; Uinta 52; Converse 51; Fremont 44; Teton 41; Albany 33; Carbon 30; Platte; 26; Lincoln 25; Park 24; Sheridan 19; Big Horn and Sublette 18; Goshen 17; Weston 11; Washakie seven; Johnson four; Crook and Hot Springs three, and Niobrara reported 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 64,623 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 63,066 have recovered.
