Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 141 in the last two days.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 191 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Tuesday and Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 242 new laboratory-confirmed and 90 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 922 active cases. This is the first time the state has seen more than 900 active cases since Feb. 7.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 196. Natrona had 95; Fremont and Sweetwater 68; Campbell 62; Albany 51; Uinta 50; Teton 44; Converse 43; Carbon 42; Park 33; Sheridan 32; Platte 30; Lincoln 26; Sublette 22; Big Horn 18; Goshen 16; Weston 12; Crook six; Washakie five; Johnson four, while Hot Springs and Niobrara had one.
No county reported zero cases for Thursday.
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 64,955 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 63,257 have recovered.
