Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 28 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 91 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 97 new laboratory-confirmed and 22 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,091 active cases for Thursday.
Three counties had more than 100 active cases and one had more than 200. Laramie County had 244 active cases; Natrona 123; Uinta 121; Campbell and Carbon 89; Fremont 84; Park 57; Sweetwater 49; Teton 39; Sheridan 33; Albany 28; Weston 27; Goshen 21; Platte 14; Johnson 13; Lincoln 12; Crook nine; Converse and Hot Springs six; Washakie five; Big Horn had three, while Niobrara reported two active cases.
No county reported zero 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 113,478 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 110,885 have recovered.
