Hawaii health officials reported 62 new cases of COVID-19 statewide on Wednesday.

The new cases include 41 on Oahu, five on Hawaii island, two on Maui, one on Kauai and seven on Lanai, where an outbreak is growing. Six residents were diagnosed out of state. No new deaths were reported.

Lanai is under a stay-at-home order and has recorded 94 cases since last week. At least 30 students who attend Lanai High and Elementary School have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus — double the number affected last week.

One case from Oahu was removed from the counts because of updated data, according to the Hawaii Department of Health. Two previously reported deaths on Lanai and Maui were determined to not be related to COVID-19 and were removed from the counts.

The statewide official death toll is 213. Civil Beat calculates at least 223 people have died from the disease in Hawaii, which includes confirmed deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health.

Hospitalizations have been on the decline for more than a week. There are currently 61 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Hawaii, including 15 people in intensive care.

Oahu is currently in Tier 2 of its reopening plan, which includes some relaxed rules for restaurants and gyms, among other things.

Of all the cases identified in Hawaii since March, 7% have required hospitalization and 95% were residents.

Approximately 3,035 people with active infections are currently being monitored by state officials.
