New Mexico health officials today reported 301 new positive test cases for COVID-19—the second highest day of cases since the pandemic began. There have now been a total of 14,549 cases. Of those, the health department has designated 6,181 cases as recovered.*

Today's high case numbers follow rising cases over the last two weeks—a trend that caused Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham yesterday to announce some pending rollbacks—effective July 13—in the current public health order.

Bernalillo County today again led the state in cases with 73 new ones, followed by Doña Ana County with 44. McKinley, Lea and San Juan counties had 33, 32, and 31 cases, respectively.

Mora County also had its first case—DeBaca County is now the only county in the state without any reported instances of COVID-19.

Santa Fe County had 20 cases here today—the highest single day thus far. There have been a total of 322 cases here so far, 145 of which have been designated as recovered.

Statewide, 151 people are currently hospitalized—three fewer than yesterday.

The state also announced six new deaths from Bernalillo, McKinley and San Juan counties, as well as an additional state inmate death at Otero County Prison Facility; there have been 539 fatalities statewide so far.
