ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — As COVID-19 spreads through the state, the New Mexico governor cautioned against continuing to “burn through (testing equipment) in ways that are not as organized as (state officials) want it to be.”
New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and other health officials said during a public briefing that the state has a growing capacity to test for the virus that is capable of meeting the state’s needs. But she stressed that only those with symptoms should get tested.
The governor said the 28 confirmed cases in the state represent a small fraction of the 2,354 tests that have been processed in New Mexico.
