Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 83 on Friday to end the week.
The Wyoming Department of Health received new reports Friday of 730 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 605 new laboratory-confirmed and 208 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,107 active cases for Friday.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases and seven had more than 200. Natrona County continued to have the highest number of active cases in the state with 787; Laramie had 391; Campbell 349; Fremont 324; Sweetwater 312; Uinta 295; Sheridan 267; Park 198; Converse 152; Lincoln 151; Teton 125; Albany 107; Carbon 97; Hot Springs 93; Goshen 83; Crook and Washakie 63; Big Horn 55; Platte 51; Sublette 42; Johnson 37; and Weston had 35, and Niobrara had 25.
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 80,643 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 75,657 have recovered.
