Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 18 on Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 94 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 91 new laboratory-confirmed and 21 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 498 active cases on Friday
Laramie County had 98 cases, Natrona 66; Fremont 50; Campbell 40; Sweetwater 36; Teton 35; Albany 26; Sheridan 25; Carbon and Washakie 18; Goshen 14; Park 12; Lincoln 11; Uinta ten; Platte nine; Big Horn seven; Hot Springs and Niobrara five; Johnson and Weston four; Sublette had three, while Converse and Crook reported one.
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 154,909 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 152,693 have recovered.
