Laramie County Health Officials Report Surge In COVID Cases
The Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department says over 800 new cases of COVID-19 cases were reported in the county last week, one of the largest increases since the pandemic started.
The agency posted this statement on its Facebook page:
The numbers in all three categories were far lower than many reported by the hospital over the past year or so. On December 14, the hospital was reporting 40 people hospitalized with the coronavirus, and at times the number has ranged into the low 50s. Similarly, the number of people on ventilators and in the ICU in the latest CRMC report are among the lowest since the pandemic began.
