COVID-19 Epidemiology Reports

The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) is committed to providing New Mexico residents with the most current information regarding COVID-19 in the state. As part of the COVID-19 pandemic response, NMDOH collects and analyzes statewide data for COVID-19 positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. The reports below reflect these critical data and will be updated monthly, on the third Tuesday of every month.

Note: Ongoing efforts to improve the completeness and accuracy of the hospitalization data will result in week-to-week changes in the cumulative hospitalization counts. These changes are not affecting recent hospitalization data, but will affect the historical (i.e., cumulative) hospitalization baseline.

Weekly Reports

NMDOH is unable to update Deaths related to COVID-19 in the Weekly Reports at this time. Please see the previous COVID-19 Mortality Report from April 11, 2023 for the most current data.

Data Notes

The data reported in this weekly update (every Tuesday, except holidays) may not match the numbers that are reported in the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) press releases, weekly reports, and/or the NMDOH COVID-19 data dashboard. This may be due to variation in the date and time of data extraction from NM-EDSS, corrections after quality assurance review, and differences in the exclusion criteria. Also, data reported within the most recent 7 days are incomplete as we continue to receive data, remove duplications, and complete other quality assurance activities.  All data are from residents of New Mexico and include those in prison at any New Mexico federal or state facility.
