A fifth straight day of over 1,200 new COVID-19 cases; 14 new deaths reported

The state Department of Health reported over 1,200 cases of COVID-19 again on Tuesday. The department also reported 14 additional deaths related to the disease.

Tuesday was the fifth-straight day with 1,200 or more cases of COVID-19, and the sixth day in the last week with ten or more newly reported deaths.

Bernalillo County once again had the most newly reported cases, with 307, followed by 222 in Doña Ana County, 100 in Sandoval County, 90 in Santa Fe County, 75 in Lea County, 65 in Chaves County, 60 in Eddy County and 51 in Curry County.

In all, the state reported at least one new case of COVID-19 in 29 of the state’s 33 counties.

DOH also reported four new cases among inmates at facilities run by the state Department of Corrections.

The number of those hospitalized for COVID-19 increased by two since Monday to 425.

This could include those from out of state who are hospitalized for COVID-19 in New Mexico, but would not include New Mexicans who are hospitalized out of state. The number of those hospitalized from out of state has been a low percentage of overall cases, the state’s hospitalization update from last week showed.

DOH provided some details on each of the 14 newly reported deaths related to COVID-19.

  • A male in his 40s from Doña Ana County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.
  • A second male in his 40s from Doña Ana County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.

  • A male in his 60s from Socorro County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.

The most common underlying condition for those who died with COVID-19 was cardiovascular disease, followed by diabetes and hypertension, according to the state’s latest mortality update.

DOH has now found 57,547 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,144 deaths related to the disease.

Of the confirmed cases, 23,736 are designated as recovered by DOH.

The New Mexico Environment Department’s Rapid Response COVID-19 Watchlist now has 177 places of employment. The list shows workplaces with two or more rapid responses for positive COVID-19 tests among employees.

If a workplace has four or more rapid responses within two weeks, the workplace will need to shut down for 14 days. No new workplaces were closed on Tuesday.

The state coronavirus information page said there have been 1,281,951 tests processed as of Tuesday, an increase of 12,428 over Monday’s total.
