The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming increased by 186 on Thursday from Wednesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received new reports of 560 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 583 new laboratory-confirmed and 163 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,339 active cases on Thursday.
Thirteen counties had more than 100 active cases, with eight reporting more than 200. Natrona County had 754; Campbell 447; Fremont 402; Laramie 347; Sweetwater 328; Sheridan 281; Uinta 256; Park 207; Lincoln 194; Converse 166; Albany and Teton 150; Carbon 93; Goshen 80; Washakie 76; Big Horn 74; Crook 72; Sublette 61; Hot Springs 54; Johnson 41; Platte 40; Weston had 34, and Niobrara had 32.
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 83,643 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 78,386 have recovered.
