The Wyoming Department of Health received new reports of 649 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 641 new laboratory-confirmed and 116 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,403 active cases for Thursday.
Fifteen counties have more than 100 active cases and eight have more than 200.
Natrona County increased continued to lead the state with 740 active cases; Campbell had 479; Fremont 422; Laramie 340; Sweetwater 295; Uinta 256; Sheridan 235; Park 208; Lincoln 173; Teton 170; Albany 169; Big Horn and Converse 138; Goshen and Washakie 106; Carbon 87; Sublette 81; Crook 67; Johnson 55; Niobrara 49; Hot Springs 31; Platte had 30, while Weston reported the fewest active cases, with 28.
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 87,351 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 81,993 have recovered.
