Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 14 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 271 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 237 new laboratory-confirmed and 48 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,402 active cases.
Four counties have more than 100 active cases and two have more than 200.
Laramie County had 263 active cases; Natrona 221; Campbell 129; Uinta 127; Sheridan 99; Carbon 96; Albany 64; Sweetwater 60; Fremont 55; Park 38; Lincoln 34; Teton 32; Johnson 29; Platte 24; Converse 22; Sublette 20; Washakie 29; Niobrara 18; Goshen 16; Big Horn and Crook 14; Weston had seven, while Hot Springs reported one active case.
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 111,560 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 108,730 have recovered.
