Wyoming’s active coronavirus case tally increased by 372 on Wednesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 163 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 446 new laboratory-confirmed and 89 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,034 active cases for Tuesday.
Fourteen counties had more than 100 active cases, with seven having more than 200. Natrona County had 681; Fremont 399; Campbell 398; Laramie 321; Sweetwater 287; Uinta 222; Park 209; Sheridan 192; Albany 166; Lincoln 159; Washakie 138; Converse 119; Sublette 107; Teton 103; Goshen 98; Big Horn 97; Carbon 84; Crook 59; Platte 58; Johnson 45; Weston 40; Niobrara had 33, while Hot Springs reported the fewest active cases with 19.
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 89,965 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 84,935 have recovered.
