SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Health officials in New Mexico report 266 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and seven additional deaths.

Data released Sunday by the state Department of Health pushed the total of coronavirus cases to 19,042 with 614 known deaths.

Bernalillo County led all counties in new cases with 91 and four of the latest reported deaths occurred in that county.

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

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
