NM again hits a new months-long low on new cases on Monday

The New Mexico Department of Health reported 315 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, with 13 additional deaths. 

This continued the weeks-long trend of fewer reported cases, even as testing capacity largely remains at relatively high levels. This was the fewest number of one-day cases since Oct. 11, when DOH reported just 259 new cases, the last day that New Mexico reported fewer than 300 cases.

The number of those hospitalized for COVID-19 reached 396 on Monday, seven fewer than reported on Sunday. This could include those from other states who are hospitalized in New Mexico, but would not include New Mexicans who are hospitalized in other states.

DOH has now found 177,867 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and reported 3,412 deaths related to the disease. Of the confirmed cases, DOH has designated 112,051 as recovered as of Monday.

DOH provided some information on each of the 13 newly reported deaths Monday.

  • A male in his 50s from Chaves County who had underlying conditions.
  • A female in her 80s from Doña Ana County who was hospitalized.
  • A male in his 80s from Doña Ana County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.
  • A male in his 50s from McKinley County who had underlying conditions.
  • A male in his 60s from McKinley County.
  • A second male in his 60s from McKinley County who was hospitalized.
  • A male in his 30s from San Juan County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.
  • A female in her 50s from San Juan County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions who was a resident of the Bloomfield Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Bloomfield.
  • A male in his 50s from San Juan County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.
  • A male in his 60s from San Juan County who was hospitalized and had underlying conditions.
  • A female in her 90s from Santa Fe County.
  • A male in his 90s from Socorro County who was a resident of the Good Samaritan Society facility in Socorro.
  • A male in his 70s from Taos County who was hospitalized.

DOH does not disclose which underlying condition any of the deceased had, only if one was present before death.

The most common underlying condition for those who died with COVID-19 was hypertension, followed by diabetes and cardiovascular disease, according to the most recently available mortality update. Some of those who died had multiple comorbidities.

The New Mexico Environment Department’s Rapid Response COVID-19 Watchlist had 34 establishments as of Monday. These workplaces had two or more COVID-19 rapid responses in the last 14 days.

Testing details

The state coronavirus information page says the state has processed 2,439,850 tests as of Monday, 9,523 more than reported on Sunday. The 315 positive cases represented 3.31 percent of the newly reported tests.
