Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 59 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 124 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 156 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,405 active cases for Wednesday.
Five counties had more than 100 active cases, with having more than 200.
Laramie County had 320; Natrona 205; Campbell 127; Carbon 121; Uinta 120; Park 70; Fremont 66; Sweetwater 64; Sheridan 61; Teton 40; Albany 38; Goshen and Lincoln 26; Converse and Platte 21; Sublette and Weston 16; Big Horn and Washakie eight; Crook had seven; while Niobrara and Hot Springs reported five 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 112,551 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 109,674 have recovered.
