Hawaii health officials reported 114 new COVID-19 cases on Friday. Nine were on Hawaii island and the rest were on Oahu.

The state Department of Health also reported one new virus-related death on Oahu, and officials at Hilo Medical Center have confirmed that an 18th resident of the Yukio Okutsu State Veterans Home in Hilo has died.

Because of reporting lags, the state health department had not included most of the deaths at Yukio Okutsu in the state’s official data until Friday, when it added a dozen of the deaths to the state dashboard.

Test results on Thursday showed a 4.2% positivity rate, Lt. Gov. Josh Green said on Instagram. In the last week, 2.2% of tests had come back positive.

The lower weekly test positivity rate — an important measure of how widespread the virus in in the community — was partially due to the federal testing surge that ended Monday. Only 0.6% of surge tests were positive, and those results had been contributing to a lower overall positivity rate.

Since March, 273,888 people have been tested for COVID-19 in Hawaii, and 11,217 — or 4% — have been diagnosed with the disease.

Half of all virus cases in Hawaii to date have been among people under the age of 40, and nearly 10% — or 1,172 — cases have been children under the age of 17. Only three children have been hospitalized to date.
