Wyoming’s active coronavirus case count decreased by 128 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 186 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 48 new laboratory-confirmed and 18 new probable cases, leaving the state with 238 active cases for Tuesday.
Laramie County had 49 cases, Fremont 27; Natrona 25; Teton 17; Campbell 15; Sweetwater 14; Carbon 12; Platte ten; Park nine; Albany, Goshen, Sheridan, Uinta seven; Big Horn, Converse, Hot Springs, Sublette and Washakie four; Johnson and Lincoln had three, while Crook, Niobrara and Weston 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 155,558 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 153,571 have recovered.
