Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 129 on Friday to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 392 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 408 new laboratory-confirmed and 113 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,781 active cases.
Ten counties now have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 400. Natrona County had 447; Laramie 437; Campbell 298; Fremont 177; Uinta 173; Sweetwater 157; Sheridan 148; Teton 134; Albany 127; Park 119; Converse 77; Lincoln 76; Carbon 74; Goshen 62; Platte 56; Johnson 46; Weston 38; Big Horn 34; Washakie 24; Crook 22; Sublette 21; Hot Springs had 20, 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 70,671 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 67,081 have recovered.
