Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 228 on Wednesday from Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 28 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 200 new laboratory-confirmed and 56 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,891 active cases, an increase of 228 active cases since Tuesday.
Of these cases, 671 are the Delta variant.
Two counties are over 200 active cases. Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 442. Natrona County had 263; Campbell had 199; Uinta had 132; Teton 97; Fremont 93; Sheridan 91; Albany 86; Sweetwater 77; Park 75; Carbon 69; Converse 57; Lincoln 48; Platte 32; Goshen 27; Big Horn 24; Johnson and Sublette 14; Washakie and Weston 13; Hot Springs ten; Niobrara had nine, and Crook reported six active cases.
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 67,582 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 64,898 have recovered.
