State health officials reported 100 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, along with three deaths on Oahu which took the state coronavirus death toll to 91.
The three men who died on Oahu had other medical conditions — two were in the 60 to 69-year-old age range and the other was between 70 and 79, according to state health officials.
The average number of new daily cases has dropped from a peak of 250 in August to an average of 162 cases daily last week.

Ten people at the home had died as of Wednesday, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. The latest Veterans Home deaths were not yet included in the state’s online tracker as of noon Wednesday.
“The DOH is aware of six additional deaths associated with COVID-19 at the Yukio Okutsu Veterans Home in Hilo,” a state coronavirus spokesman wrote Wednesday. “To confirm these deaths, the department is waiting on medical records from the facility. Confirmation of all COVID-19 deaths is based on medical documentation.”
