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 has been collecting and analyzing statewide data for COVID-19 positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
Starting in 2020 and continuing until now (February 2024), NMDOH has produced a series of static reports detailing counts, trends, and demographic breakdowns for COVID-19 cases (adult and pediatric), hospitalizations, vaccinations, and variants of concern. The reports have been a solid part of the pandemic response, and important for informing policy makers and residents of New Mexico with details about the impact COVID-19 has had on our state’s populations.
Going forward, we will present COVID-19 data as part of the Viral Respiratory Infection Dashboard.
Viral Respiratory Infection Dashboard
Recognizing that COVID-19 is only one of the important and preventable viral respiratory infections of interest to New Mexicans, we have developed an interactive data dashboard for COVID-19, influenza, and RSV. These are seasonal illnesses which recur every year and impact the health of the state’s population. We update the dashboard weekly with the most current available data.
Please see the link to the NMDOH Viral Respiratory Infection Dashboard below:
The dashboard’s default view is a “Snapshots” tab that contains snapshots of the most recent actionable information related to COVID-19, RSV, and influenza. This includes COVID-19 Vaccines Administered, Cases, and Hospitalizations. Also included are a county-level map and the statewide trend for % ED discharge diagnosis, as well as trends in influenza-like activity for multiple seasons.
There are currently five additional tabs with more in-depth interactive visualizations for exploration. Three of these tabs allow for customized queries of case rates and discharge data for COVID-19, RSV, and influenza. A fourth tab details COVID-19 vaccines administered and county-level uptake. The fifth tab contains general notes for the dashboard and a description of data sources.
The dashboard draws primarily from the Respiratory Virus Hospitalization Surveillance Network (RESP-NET) for laboratory-confirmed hospitalizations caused by one of the three key respiratory viruses: SARS-CoV-2, RSV, and influenza. Additional data sources for the dashboard includes New Mexico statewide data for cases, databases for vaccinations in New Mexico, Emergency department discharge data, and ILI-NET for tracking influenza-like illnesses.
We welcome your questions and feedback to make this dashboard more useful: COVID.Epi-Reports@doh.nm.gov.
