Health officials recorded 114 new COVID-19 cases statewide on Monday, including 80 on Oahu, 10 on Hawaii island, 11 on Maui and three on Kauai. Ten more Hawaii residents were diagnosed outside of the state, according to the Department of Health.
Civil Beat’s virus tracker is updated when the state releases its daily numbers. The state posts new data daily at noon. The daily reports reflect laboratory results collected up until 11:59 p.m. two days prior, which means there is a 36-hour lag between when results are submitted to the Department of Health and when the state reports them publicly.
The COVID-19 case reports are based on test results from laboratories statewide. The numbers include lab results from both residents and tourists. Since March, 94% of cases diagnosed in the islands have been among residents and 7% have required hospitalization.
Civil Beat calculates at least 250 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including 17 deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health due to medical verification lags. To date, 49 deaths on the Big Island have been recorded by the Hawaii County Civil Defense.
