NEW MEXICO APRIL COVID-19 UPDATE



Covid-19 cases in New Mexico have decreased since vaccines have been available to the public, according to a New York Times article. “New cases of the corona virus in New Mexico have plunged to fewer than 200 a day from nearly 2,000. Deaths have declined to fewer than five a day from an average of more than 35. In the state’s nursing homes and assisted-care facilities, the average number of deaths each day has fallen from 10 to fewer than one.”


New Mexico has vaccinated roughly less than 40 percent of the population making it the leading state with the highest rate of full vaccinations. A great accomplishment considering New Mexico’s has one of the highest poverty rates.
