Three New COVID-19 Deaths

The number of coronavirus-related deaths among Wyoming residents who had tested positive for COVID-19 has increased by three according to the Wyoming Department of Health. An adult Natrona County man who was known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at a higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19, and was not hospitalized, died this week.

An older adult Natrona County man died last month after being hospitalized. The man was also known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19. An adult Campbell County man died last week after being hospitalized. The man was also known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19.

Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s coronavirus-related death total based on official death certificate information. If death certificates do not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a person’s death, those deaths are not included in Wyoming’s count of coronavirus-related deaths. Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 53 coronavirus-related deaths.
