SANTA FE – Health officials in New Mexico said 628 new coronavirus cases and 26 deaths were reported Monday.
The latest numbers from the Department of Health bring the total known cases to 163,637 and deaths from COVID-19 to 2,958.
Of the new cases, 161 are in Bernalillo County, the state’s largest county that includes Albuquerque. San Juan County, which includes Farmington, had 62 new cases.
The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested.
Studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
