ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico health officials say another 153 coronavirus cases have been confirmed, pushing the statewide total to nearly 4,300. Seven additional deaths were also reported Wednesday.
That includes four patients in McKinley County, a rural area in western New Mexico that accounts for nearly one-third of the state’s cases.
The county’s most populous city, Gallup, is under a lockdown aimed to curbing the spread.
During the pandemic, state officials say New Mexico agencies have delivered more than 5.4 million meals to children and youth, more than 293,000 meals to seniors and more than 400,000 pounds of food items to those communities most in need.
