Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 207 to end the year.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 189 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 316 new laboratory-confirmed and 80 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,327 active cases.
Four counties had more than 100 active cases and two had more than 200.
Teton County had 288; Laramie 285; Uinta 118; Natrona 107; Albany 94; Campbell 81; Fremont 72; Sweetwater 59; Sheridan 49; Lincoln 41; Carbon 23; Park 21; Converse 19; Goshen 16; Weston ten; Platte and Washakie nine; Big Horn and Sublette eight; Crook four; Hot Springs 3; Niobrara had two, while Johnson 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 115,638 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 112,765 have recovered.
