Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 167 on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 314 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 347 new laboratory-confirmed and 160 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,949 active cases.
Ten counties have more than 100 active cases, with three having more than 300. Natrona County had 507; Laramie had 422; Campbell 311; Uinta 221; Fremont 184; Sweetwater 161; Albany 159; Sheridan 175; Teton 144; Park 113; Converse 90; Lincoln 72; Goshen 62; Platte 56; Carbon 51; Johnson 47; Weston 41; Hot Springs 38; Big Horn 29; Crook 28; Washakie had 22, and Niobrara and Sublette 17 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 72,069 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 68,285 have recovered.
