SANTA FE — New Mexico reported 518 new coronavirus infections Monday, continuing a week of sky-high case totals.
The state’s seven-day rolling average of new cases now stands at 563 a day, or more than six times higher than it was in mid-September. The state’s goal is to have 168 or fewer cases a day.
Health officials on Monday reported just one death — a man in his 50s from Bernalillo County. The statewide death toll is now 935 residents.
Fatalities have generally held steady at roughly three a day over the last week, well below the peak of 10 deaths a day in mid-May.
