Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by one to start the week Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 890 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 724 new laboratory-confirmed and 167 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,782 active cases.
Ten counties now have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than over 400. Natrona County had the highest number of active cases as of Monday 447; Laramie had 408; Campbell had 297; Uinta 194; Fremont 185; Sweetwater 159; Sheridan and Teton 149; Albany 125; Park 113; Converse 78; Lincoln 72; Platte 60; Carbon 55; Goshen 54; Johnson 42; Weston 42; Bog Horn 37; Hot Springs 36; Crook 29; Washakie 24; Sublette 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 71,562 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 67,971 have recovered.
