Wyoming’s active coronavirus tally increased by 88 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 92 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 151 new laboratory-confirmed and 29 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,018 active cases for Thursday.
Three counties had more than 100 active cases and one had more than 200.
Laramie County had 207; Teton 138; Uinta 119; Natrona 94; Campbell and Fremont 60; Sheridan and Sweetwater 51; Carbon 37; Park 33; Albany 32; Lincoln 29; Goshen and Weston 20; Sublette and Washakie 11; Crook and Platte ten; Johnson eight; Converse seven; Big Horn and Hot Springs had four, while Niobrara reported two 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 114,242 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 111,698 have recovered.
