Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 53 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 166 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 86 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases, leaving the state with 486 active cases.
Laramie County had 89 cases, Natrona 68; Sweetwater 49; Fremont 48; Campbell and Teton 41; Washakie 25; Carbon 18; Albany 16; Sheridan 15; Lincoln 13; Park and Platte nine; Goshen eight; Sublette and Uinta seven; Big Horn six; Converse four; Hot Springs, Johnson and Weston had three, while Converse and Niobrara 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 154,662 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 152,458 have recovered.
