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 133,495 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 124,548 have recovered.
