Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 54 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 545 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state received reports of 347 new laboratory-confirmed and 144 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,305 active cases for Thursday.
Twelve counties now have more than 100 active cases, with four having more than 200.
Natrona County had 584 Laramie 377; Fremont 336; Sheridan 236; Campbell 192; Goshen 189; Carbon 181; Uinta 164; Park 158; Sweetwater 154; Albany 134; Lincoln 97; Weston 96; Washakie 84; Teton 76; Converse 56; Sublette 38; Platte 36; Crook 33; Johnson 26; Niobrara 24; Big Horn had 22, 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 102,403 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 97,924 have recovered.
