By Brenda Norrell
ZUNI PUEBLO -- Zuni Pueblo Governor Val Panteah said there are fifteen cases of coronavirus on the Pueblo and one member has died.
Governor Panteah said, "As an update, as of today, we have 15 tribal members that have tested positive for Coronavirus. One death. I don’t know how else to put it but all of you need to stay home! I would ask you, is travel really necessary? Every time you leave your home, you are taking a risk against your health maybe even death!"
Zuni is located in northwest New Mexico, near Gallup, N.M., and the Navajo Nation.
Coronavirus cases increased throughout the Pueblos in New Mexico, with two clusters shown.
Zia Pueblo and San Felipe Pueblos in northern New Mexico have reported the most cases. San Felipe Pueblo reports 52 cases and Zia Pueblo 31 cases.
