Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 26 on Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 67 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Wednesday.
At the same time, the state reported 83 new laboratory-confirmed and 10 new probable cases, leaving it with 340 active cases for Wednesday
Laramie County had 62 cases, Fremont and Natrona 33; Sweetwater 25; Goshen and Teton 21; Albany and Campbell 20; Weston 18; Carbon 15; Sheridan 13; Park and Platte eight; Uinta and Washakie seven; Lincoln six; Sublette five; Crook, Hot Springs and Niobrara four; Big Horn and Johnson had three, while Converse 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 155,277 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 153,196 have recovered.
