Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 84 on Friday to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 190 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 78 new laboratory-confirmed and 28 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,007 active cases for Friday.
Three counties had more than 100 active cases and one one had more than 200.
Laramie County had 233; Uinta 119; Natrona 102; Campbell and Fremont 82; Carbon 55; Sweetwater 54; Park 52; Teton 45; Sheridan 31; Albany 30; Weston 23; Goshen and Sublette 16; Johnson 13; Crook and Platte 11; Lincoln ten; Washakie eight; Converse five; Big Horn and Hot Springs had four, while Niobrara 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 113,548 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 111,075 have recovered.
