Statistics on the 2019-2020 novel coronavirus outbreak in New Mexico (United States)

compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 27 March 2020

Introduction

New Mexico reported its first case of Covid-19 on 11 Mar 2020 and its first death from Covid-19 on 25 Mar 2020. Very high per capita testing levels have been attained relative to other U.S. states, as well as very low rates of positive tests. The New Mexico Department of Health has been releasing general demographic data on confirmed Covid-19 cases, summarized here. Note that demographic data other than county were not provided for cases announced 19 Mar and 27 Mar.

In the following tables, F=female, M=male, unk=unknown, CFR=case fatality rate. Population estimates for 2020 are based on various U.S. Census Bureau estimates through 2018. Case statistics are primarily from the New Mexico Department of Health supplemented by reports from the Navajo Nation Government and news reports. Note that as the numbers in New Mexico are (fortunately) small thus far, the statistical significance of derived results here may be low.
