State health officials reported 169 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, along with three deaths on Oahu which took the state coronavirus death toll to 94.

Eight of those cases were on Hawaii island, three were on Maui, and the remainder were on Oahu.

The average number of cases announced daily by state officials has dropped from a peak of 250 in August to 156 cases verified each day last week.

Nearly 10,300 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since March.

The latest breakdown of cases by age group shows that while most hospitalizations have been among elderly people with COVID-19, children and adults under the age of 30 have made up nearly a third of all confirmed virus cases in the state.

More than 400 cases have been reported in communal living settings like prisons, shelters, and nursing homes. About half of the 300 available state-funded quarantine rooms are currently occupied, according to a new COVID-19 data dashboard.
