Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by six on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 141 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 127 new laboratory-confirmed and eight new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 480 active cases on Thursday.
Laramie County had 91 cases, Natrona 63; Fremont 47; Teton 42; Campbell 41; Sweetwater Carbon 21; Albany 20; Washakie 17; Sheridan Lincoln 14; Park 13; Platte ten; Goshen nine; Uinta eight; Big Horn seven; Niobrara five; Johnson four; Crook Hot Springs, Sublette and Weston had three, while Converse reported two.
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 154,797 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 152,599 have recovered.
