Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 135 on Friday to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 97 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 202 new laboratory-confirmed and 30 new probable cases to leave the state with 954 active cases on Friday.
Two counties had more than 100 active cases.
Laramie County had had 193 cases, Fremont 127; Natrona 88; Campbell 82; Teton 77; Sweetwater 59; Carbon 48; Albany 46; Sheridan 36; Goshen 34; Lincoln 29; Park 24; Hot Springs and Uinta 16; Washakie 15; Platte 14; Converse 11; Weston ten; Sublette eight; Big Horn seven; Johnson had six, while Crook and Niobrara reported four.
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 154,082 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 151,439 have recovered.
