State reports just 494 new COVID-19 cases, lowest one-day total since October

The state Department of Health reported 494 new cases of COVID-19 and 12 related deaths on Monday.

This was the lowest one-day total of newly reported cases since Oct. 18. Mondays typically have lower test counts than other days, though the total number of reported cases between Sunday and Monday was not significantly lower than normal.

Bernalillo County had the most new cases reported on Monday with 143 cases. Doña Ana County had the next-most number of cases with 68.

The state was unable to provide a number of hospitalizations for the second consecutive day because of a disruption in reporting. The state typically receives the information from hospitals each morning.

The state has identified a total of 169,696 cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic and 3,157 deaths related to the disease. DOH has designated 95,848 COVID-19 cases recovered. 

DOH provided some information on each of the 68 newly reported deaths.
