SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Health officials in New Mexico on Sunday reported 635 new COVID-19 cases and 30 more deaths.
The latest figures pushed the state’s totals to 169,205 cases and 3,145 known deaths since the start of the pandemic.
On Saturday, health officials had reported 859 additional cases and 38 deaths.
Bernalillo County had the most additional cases reported Sunday with 146.
Most of the additional deaths involved older New Mexicans, but they also included several people in their 30s.
The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
