Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 28 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Wednesday of 98 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 111 new laboratory-confirmed and 15 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,063 active cases for Wednesday.
Three counties had more than 100 active cases and one had more than 200. Laramie County had 233 active cases Wednesday; Uinta 121; Natrona 116; Carbon 88; Fremont 83; Campbell 79; Park and Sweetwater 56; Teton 33; Sheridan 32; Weston 31; Albany 27; Goshen 20; Sublette 18; Johnson, Lincoln and Platte 13; Washakie seven; Converse and Crook six; Hot Springs five; Big Horn had four, while Niobrara reported three 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 113,359 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 110,794 have recovered.
