Double-digit counts of novel coronavirus cases in southeastern New Mexico drove a jump in the state's daily number Thursday.
New Mexico logged 202 new cases, including 12 in Santa Fe County, 37 in Bernalillo County and 29 in Doña Ana County. But the daily spike was centered in the state's southwestern corner, where Eddy County had 32 new positive test results, Chaves County had 22, Lea County had 19 and Curry County had 14.
The state has had a total of 25,812 cases and 791 deaths. Health officials reported one new death Thursday, a woman in her 70s from Doña Ana County.
There were 75 people hospitalized for treatment of COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus, and 13,283 patients had recovered by Thursday, officials said.
