The state also reported the death of another Oahu resident, bringing Hawaii’s death toll from the virus to at least 191.
Roughly a third of all coronavirus cases identified in the state so far have been among people under 30 years old. Nearly 800 people have been hospitalized with the virus in Hawaii since the start of the pandemic.
There are 137 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the state, including 34 people in intensive care units. Hawaii hospital beds are 65% full and intensive care units are 59% full, including both COVID-19 patients and other patients.
The Department of Health has recorded 169 COVID-19 related deaths to date, but that does not include a number of deaths reported on Hawaii island. Civil Beat calculates 191 deaths so far, which includes 37 deaths in Hawaii County. Lags in state reporting are common as state health officials wait for information to verify COVID-19 fatalities.
