Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 22 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 328 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 234 new laboratory-confirmed and 72 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,652 active cases.
Ten counties are now over 100 active cases, with two being over 400. Laramie County had 442; Natrona 405; Campbell 249; Uinta 241; Fremont 178; Sheridan 152; Sweetwater 134; Teton 123; Albany 119; Park 111; Converse 78; Carbon 77; Lincoln 72; Goshen 63; Jonson 40; Platte 38; Weston 32; Big Horn and Washakie 27; Crook 18; Sublette 16; Hot Springs had 15, and Niobrara had 13.
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 70,150 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 66,689 have recovered.
Of the 58,111 confirmed cases recorded since the illness was first detected in Wyoming, 778 have involved the Delta variant.
