SANTA FE — New Mexico reported about 930 new coronavirus cases Monday as the number of daily infections showed signs of leveling off after a period of sharp growth.

The state has averaged about 1,400 cases a day over the last week — a 30% increase from the average on Jan 1.

But the daily average has held roughly steady the last few days.

The share of tests that come back positive fell slightly. The test positivity rate dropped to 12.1% in the most recent seven-day period tracked by the state, about 2 percentage points lower than the average at one point last week.

New Mexico also reported 15 more coronavirus-related deaths Monday, pushing the statewide death toll to 2,764.

The state has averaged about 27 virus deaths a day over the last week.

The state reported about 704 coronavirus hospitalizations, roughly in line with recent figures.
