This is despite over 238,300 (41.18%) of the populated vaccinated and 109,300+ (19%) having had the disease and now presumably have some natural immunity. (The population of the state is around 575,000.) The death rate related to COVID-19 is .2%. No one under the age of 18 has died of COVID-19 in the state of Wyoming to date. After two years of the pandemic, the data shows that 97% of people in Wyoming who have had the disease have recovered from it.
