Wyoming’s total of active coronavirus cases increased by 396 on Wednesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 43 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 300 new laboratory-confirmed and 139 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,565 active cases for Wednesday.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases, while eight had more than 200.
Natrona County had 712; Campbell 324; Laramie 299; Fremont 275; Sheridan 232; Park and Uinta 213; Sweetwater 158; Goshen 155; Albany 135; Washakie 134; Lincoln 123; Converse 86; Sublette 77; Carbon 76; Big Horn 70; Platte 67; Teton 51; Weston 49; Johnson 40; Crook 38; Niobrara had 24, and Hot Springs reported the fewest active cases, with 14.
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 96,059 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 91,414 have recovered.
