In the last week, an average of 98 new cases has been reported daily, the first time the seven-day running average has dipped below 100 in nearly two months.
As of Sunday, intensive care beds were at 65% capacity and 185 people in Hawaii were hospitalized with the virus, Lt. Gov. Josh Green said on Instagram.
In the last week, 1.9% of tests had come back positive. The lower weekly test positivity rate is still 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. The batch of results reported Sunday had a 4.6% positivity rate, according to Green.
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.
