Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 133 to end the week Friday.
The Wyoming Department of Health said it received new reports Friday of 448 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 165 new laboratory-confirmed and 150 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,206 active cases for Friday.
Twelve counties now have more than 100 active cases, with eight having more than 200. Natrona County continued to lead the stat in active cases Friday with 719; Campbell 423; Fremont 365; Laramie 348; Sweetwater 299; Sheridan 283; Uinta 272; Lincoln 208; Park 190′ Converse 167; Teton 156; Albany 150; Carbon 87; Goshen 80; Washakie 72; Big Horn and Crook 65; Sublette 61; Hot Springs 52; Platte 40; Johnson 37; Weston had 36, while Niobrara reported the fewest active cases with 31. No county reported zero active cases for Friday.
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 83,958 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 78,834 have recovered.
