SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Health officials in New Mexico on Sunday reported 176 more confirmed COVID-19 cases but no additional deaths.

The latest numbers increasing the state’s pandemic totals to 189,731 cases and 3,889 known deaths.

Of the new cases, Bernalillo County had 56 of them with Dona Ana County having 20, Curry County 16 and Lea County 14.

Bernalillo, the state’s largest county that includes metro Albuquerque, had 54,052 of New Mexico’s total cases since the pandemic began.

The number of infections is thought to be far higher than reported because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
