CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The number of people infected with the coronavirus in Wyoming grew by the fastest rate since early May in numbers released Monday.
The 27 lab-confirmed and six suspected cases matched the previous high of 33 cases on May 6, the Casper Star-Tribune reported.
The Wyoming Department of Health reported Monday that 17 more people with lab-confirmed cases had recovered from the COVID-19 illness, for a total of 245 active, lab-confirmed cases statewide.
That’s up from 203 active, lab-confirmed cases May 22, 131 on April 22 and 19 on March 22.
Twenty people to date have died of the coronavirus in Wyoming.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, that clear up in two to three weeks.
For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
