FROM THE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
The state of New Mexico has launched a portal with more COVID-19 data specific to positive cases and testing in the state.
The data dashboard currently includes county-by-county breakdowns of positive cases by age, gender and ethnicity. The portal also includes reporting about testing by county.
The state Department of Health has conducted extensive testing in Native American communities where clusters of illness have been identified, which at least in part explains the disproportionate share of the Native American population in the state’s total positive tests.
The state will endeavor to update the data at least twice weekly on the Health Department’s COVID-19 microsite, cv.nmhealth.org.
If and when more data can be reported accurately, the state will update the portal to include it.
The data page can be found at cv.nmhealth.org/dashboard.
