The new cases included five people in their 30s, three people in their 20s, two males between the ages of 10-19 and one boy between the ages of 0-9, Thurston County Public Health and Social Services announced.

The Wyoming Department of Health reports the state has 5,046 confirmed cases of COVID-19, an increase of 98 in 24 hours and 50 deaths in the state resulting from COVID-19. LMH Health's Wednesday update did not include any additional inpatient deaths due to COVID-19.

Since 7,591 of the 9,138 confirmed cases in the province have recovered, the recovery rate is 83 per cent.

The West Suburban region (DuPage and Kane counties) has seen two days of positivity increases and two days of hospital admission increases.

If retests are included - people who have tested positive once and are being tested for a second time - the positivity rate was 6.35% of the total, the report said. OR remains well below its capacity, with hundreds of hospital beds and ventilators available.

The positivity rate is the percentage of people who test positive out of all the people tested in a given time period.

After being in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus, 3,202 people are under public health monitoring, 135 less than the day before.

Previously, Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health announced that ten people - three residents between the ages of 65 and 74, one resident between the ages of 75 and 84 and six residents age 85 or older - had died from COVID-19 or with the virus as a contributing factor in their deaths.

The seven-day rolling average of Illinois' positivity rate remained at 3.6%.

In the US, 7.2 million people have contracted the virus and 206,000 have died as a result, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
