Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 144 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Tuesday of 460 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 210 new laboratory-confirmed and 131 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,940 active cases for Tuesday.
Eleven counties have more than 100 active cases and four have more than 200.
Natrona County had 517; Laramie 323; Fremont 311; Sheridan 215; Campbell 197; Goshen and Uinta 166; Carbon 147; Sweetwater 140; Park 125; Albany 124; Lincoln 84; Teton 77; Washakie 75; Weston 46; Converse and Platte 39; Crook 34; Sublette 33; Big Horn 27; Johnson 26; Niobrara had 17, while Hot Springs reported 12 active cases.
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 101,424 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 97,310 have recovered.
