Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by four on Thursday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 591 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 455 new laboratory-confirmed and 140 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,157 active cases on Thursday.
Fourteen counties have more than 100 active cases, with seven having more than 200. Natrona County had 731; Laramie 448; Campbell had 341; Fremont 297; Sweetwater 290; Uinta 270; Sheridan 236; Lincoln 175; Teton 164; Park 158; Albany 154; Converse 144; Hot Springs 143; Platte 100; Carbon 97; Goshen 83; Johnson 79; Washakie 66; Crook and Weston 40; Big Horn 38; Sublette had 37, and Niobrara had 26.
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 76,602 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 71,587 have recovered.
