New Mexico's COVID-19 numbers have hit triple figures.

The state Department of Health said New Mexico now has 100 confirmed positive tests. Two more were announced in Santa Fe County, which now has 14.

Five of the new cases were in Bernalillo County, with three in Doña Ana County, four in San Juan County and one new cases in Curry, Cibola and McKinley counties. Statewide, those testing positive ranged from their 20s to their 80s.

The cases are the first for Cibola and Curry counties. Thirteen of the state's 33 counties now have positive tests.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

OK, now there are 1.4% of those tested are positive. So many wasted tests from hypochondriacs that others could use due to poor screening. And has usual, how many of the 100 are currently in the hospital? The information from this incompetent government is appalling.

I was thinking the same thing. If they didn't test positive for COVID-19, did they test positive for flu? And if they didn't test positive for either who is sending in so many people that test negative. I am quite sure that there are hundreds of nursing home workers, EMS and caregivers that really should be tested and retested but the testing capacity seems to be used up by a vast number people that test negative. They should study the tests and found out who is sending in so many negatives and why?

“Cases” go back to March 9, two weeks ago. The running total is more meaningless everyday. Two weeks from now, is the New Mexican going to continue to accumulate cases back 4 weeks to March 9th?

How many are hospitalized and where, how many have recovered, how many have died?
