Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 85 on Thursday.
The Wyoming Department of Health said it received reports of 570 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 536 new laboratory-confirmed and 119 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,547 active cases for Thursday.
Fourteen counties had more than 100 active cases, with seven having more than 200.
Natrona County had 620; Freemont 351; Laramie 324; Sheridan 293; Campbell 251; Goshen 228; Carbon 172; Albany 159; Sweetwater and Uinta 158; Park 149; Washakie 121; Lincoln 108; Teton 81; Converse 73; Platte 60; Weston 43; Niobrara and Sublette 39; Crook 38; Johnson 32; Big Horn had 31; 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 99,662 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 94,979 have recovered.
