Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by five on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 62 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 65 new laboratory-confirmed cases. The number of probable cases declined by eight, the result one of the department’s periodic review of its case numbers. As a result, the state was left with 245 active cases for Thursday.
Laramie County had 35 cases, Natrona 228; Fremont 25; Teton 21; Weston 19; Sweetwater 18; Goshen 15; Campbell 13; Albany 11; Carbon ten; Platte and Sheridan seven; Big Horn six; Lincoln and Niobrara four; Converse and Uinta three; Hot Springs and Washakie had two, while Crook, Johnson and Sublette 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 155,689 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 153,692 have recovered.
