Hawaii health officials reported 83 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, including one on Kauai, 53 on Oahu, 26 on Hawaii island and three Hawaii residents diagnosed out of state.

In the last seven days, 1.7% of all COVID-19 tests taken across the state have come back positive — a significant decrease from a peak of 6.8% on Aug. 27.

Cases are spiking across much of the United States, which recorded more than 99,000 daily new cases on Friday.  Hawaii is one of two states where per-capita cases are low and are staying low instead of rising, according to an analysis from the New York Times.

The statewide official death toll is 219 and the state’s COVID-19 death rate is 1.45%.

Civil Beat calculates at least 228 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.

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.
