Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by nine on Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 48 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 53 new laboratory-confirmed and five new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 254 active cases for Friday.
Laramie had 41 cases, Natrona 31; Teton 29; Fremont 23; Campbell and Goshen 20; Weston 18; Sweetwater 16; Albany 11; Carbon and Sheridan seven; Platte and Uinta five; Big Horn and Park four; Lincoln, Niobrara and Washakie three; Converse two; Crook and Sublette had one each, while Hot Springs and Johnson reported zero active cases.
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 155,744 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 153,740 have recovered.
