On Wednesday, 102 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed by state health officials, along with three COVID-19 associated deaths on Oahu.

Four cases were on Hawaii island and 97 were on Oahu. One more resident was diagnosed out of state.

The state Department of Health has tallied 103 COVID-19 related fatalities in the islands to date.

Due to reporting lags, the count still does not include most of the 15 deaths associated with Yukio Okutsu State Veterans Home on Hawaii island. Those fatalities were confirmed by the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency. A state coronavirus spokesman said the health department is still waiting on records for 25 possible COVID-19 related deaths across the state.

As of Wednesday, the total number of Yukio Okutsu residents who tested positive for the virus was 68, approximately half of whom are staying in a dedicated COVID-19 unit. Four are hospitalized, 17 have recovered.

A federal surge testing program on Oahu ended Monday. More than 60,000 people participated, according to Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell. A low 0.6% of surge testing positivity rate indicated the virus’ spread is concentrated among certain populations and neighborhoods.

In the last week, 2.1% of all tests in Hawaii have come back positive. Half of all virus cases in Hawaii to date have been among people under the age of 40.

A University of Hawaii lab that planned to boost COVID-19 testing capacity has faced delays for months.
