State health officials reported the death of one Oahu resident on Saturday, along with 131 new cases of COVID-19. Hawaii County Civil Defense was also notified on Saturday of a death on the Big Island that occurred on Tuesday.

Six of the cases reported Saturday were on Maui, 10 on Hawaii island and 115 on Oahu.

Ten veterans have died so far in an outbreak at the Yukio Okutsu State Veterans Home in Hilo. Because of reporting lags, only three deaths are included in the Hawaii Department of Health’s public data dashboard. The 11th death reported on Hawaii island was not associated with the home, Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno said.

As of Friday, 66 residents and 27 workers at Yukio Okatsu had been diagnosed with COVID-19. Everyone at the home is being retested today, according to the company that operates the facility.

In the last month, residents have been diagnosed with COVID-19 at 21 long term care facilities in the state.

Lt. Gov. Josh Green tested positive for coronavirus on Friday, after a member of his staff had been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Since March, 635 people with the virus have been hospitalized.

Department of Health officials said as of Saturday, 2.4% of tests had returned positive during the past week. The DOH calculates this seven-day positivity rate by dividing the number of new positive test results by the total number of tests conducted during the past seven days.

That 2.4% includes the ongoing federal surge testing, which is likely contributing to a lower positivity rate.
