Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 49 to end the week Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 123 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 119 new laboratory-confirmed and 53 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 971 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 196. Natrona topped 100 cases, with 106; Fremont had 75; Campbell 69; Sweetwater 66; Albany 59; Uinta 58; Carbon 47; Converse 45; Teton 38; Park 34; Sheridan 34; Lincoln and Platte 30; Sublette 19; Goshen 18; Big Horn 16; Weston 11; Crook seven; Johnson and Washakie five; Hot Springs had two, and Niobrara 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 65,127 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 63,380 have recovered.
