Hawaii health officials reported 94 new cases of COVID-19 statewide and confirmed another death on the Big Island that was previously reported by Hawaii county officials.

The new cases documented Friday include 74 on Oahu, 14 on Hawaii island, three on Maui, one on Kauai and two on Lanai, where an outbreak is growing. One case from Hawaii and one case from Kauai were removed from the counts, according to the Department of Health.

The statewide official death toll is 216 and the state’s COVID-19 death rate is 1.44%.

Civil Beat calculates at least 225 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including confirmed deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health due to medical verification lags.

Hospitalizations statewide are still on the decline. One new hospitalization was announced Friday. There are 62 people currently hospitalized for COVID-19 including 15 people in intensive care and eight using ventilators.

Oahu is currently in Tier 2 of its reopening plan. Lanai is under a stay-at-home order and has recorded 99 cases since last week. At least 32 students who attend Lanai High and Elementary School have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus — more than double the number affected last week, with two new cases reported Friday.

Approximately 3,014 people with active infections are currently being monitored by state officials. Of all the cases identified in Hawaii since March, 7% have required hospitalization and 95% were residents.

An average of more than 5,400 people arrived by plane each day this week, approximately 37% of whom were visitors and 25% residents. Nationally, COVID-19 cases are surging at record levels.
