Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 600 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 44 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Wednesday.
At the same time, the state reported 510 new laboratory-confirmed and 134 probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,410 active cases for Wednesday.
Only one county had more than 300 active cases and nine had more than 100.
Laramie County had 397 cases, Fremont 334; Natrona 309; Sweetwater 2348; Campbell 204; Teton 125; Carbon 109; Albany 105; Sheridan 102; Park 67; Lincoln 66; Goshen 53; Washakie 39; Uinta 36; Platte 35; Crook and Sublette 33; Hot Springs and Weston 31; Converse 26; Big Horn 16; Niobrara had 14, while Johnson reported 11.
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 151,803 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 147,726 have recovered.
