Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 398 on Wednesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 42 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 305 new laboratory-confirmed and 135 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,462 active cases for Wednesday.
Fourteen counties had more than 100 active cases, while six had more than 200.
Natrona County had 599; Freemont 345; Laramie 333; Sheridan 2267; Campbell 257; Goshen 189; Albany 166; Park 163; Sweetwater 152; Uinta 151; Carbon and Washakie 125; Lincoln 118; Converse 83; Teton 79; Platte 67; Weston 43; Crook 40; Sublette 38; Niobrara 37; Big Horn 36; Johnson had 30; 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 99,007 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 94,409 have recovered.
