Wyoming’s active coronavirus case count increased by 419 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 69 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Wednesday.
At the same time, the state reported 304 new laboratory-confirmed and 184 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,359 active cases for Wednesday.
Twelve counties now have more than 100 active cases, with five having more than 200.
Natrona county had 604; Laramie 388; Fremont 354; Campbell 216; Sheridan 214; Goshen 187; Carbon 168; Park and Sweetwater 167; Uinta 161; Albany 144; Lincoln 97; Washakie 92; Teton 74; Weston 70; Converse 55; Platte 43; Crook 38; Sublette 37; Johnson 28; Big Horn and Niobrara had 21, while Hot Springs reported 13 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 101,912 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 97,379 have recovered.
