Health officials reported 92 new COVID-19 cases statewide on Friday, including 71 on Oahu, five on Hawaii island, five on Kauai and four on Maui. Seven Hawaii residents were diagnosed out of state.

The state also reported the deaths of three people on Oahu.

There are currently 60 people in Hawaii hospitals with COVID-19. Since the start of the pandemic, 1,269 people in Hawaii have needed hospital care for the disease.

In the last two weeks, 1,332 people in Hawaii have been diagnosed with COVID-19. About 13% of cases diagnosed in November were associated with travel — including visitors and residents returning to Hawaii.

The state’s official death toll is 240. Civil Beat calculates at least 257 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including 17 deaths on Hawaii island that are pending medical verification by the state. To date, 49 deaths on the Big Island have been recorded by the Hawaii County Civil Defense.

Reporting Lag

According to Janice Okubo, spokeswoman for the Hawaii Department of Health, the COVID-19 case reports are based on test results from laboratories statewide and include test results from both residents and tourists tested within the state.

The results of Hawaii residents who test positive out of state are also included, as well as cases confirmed among military service members and their family, although military cases are not specifically indicated.

If a visitor takes a test outside of Hawaii, those test results are reported to their home state health authorities and would not be reflected in the Hawaii health department’s reports. In some cases, rapid point-of-care testing results are not submitted to the DOH and are not included in these daily reports either.

For more information, check this Hawaii Department of Health COVID-19 site or this state site, and the Hawaii Data Collaborative COVID-19 Tracking site. The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency also provides this comprehensive dashboard.
