Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 76 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 80 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 136 new laboratory-confirmed and 17 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 930 active cases for Wednesday.
Two counties had more than 100 active cases and one had more than 200.
Laramie County had 204; Uinta 116; Natrona 96; Teton 92; Fremont 58; Campbell 55; Sweetwater 48; Sheridan 43; Carbon 40; Park 29; Albany 28; Goshen and Weston 19; Lincoln 17; Sublette 13; Platte 11; Crook ten; Johnson eight; Big Horn seven; Converse six; Washakie and Hot Springs had five, 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 114,062 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 111,606 have recovered.
