Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 144 on Thursday from Wednesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 677 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 348 new laboratory-confirmed and 185 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,024 active cases for Thursday.
Thirteen counties have more than 100 active cases, with eight having more than 200. Natrona County continued to lead the state in active cases with 773; Laramie had 405; Campbell had 331; Fremont had 302; Sweetwater 297; Uinta 268; Sheridan 250; Park 202; Converse 154; Lincoln 145; Hot Springs 123; Teton 122; Albany 101; Carbon 96; Goshen 86; Washakie 68; Crook 62; Platte 50; Johnson 49; Big Horn 48; Weston 44; Sublette had 41, and Niobrara had 27.
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 79,830 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 74,927 have recovered.
