Hawaii health officials reported 100 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, including 24 cases on Hawaii island, one on Kauai, one on Lanai, one on Maui, 66 on Oahu, and seven out of state.

No new deaths were reported. One previous case was removed due to updated laboratory information.

VIRUS TRACKER UPDATE

The average number of cases recorded on Oahu in the last seven days increased from 59 to 71. Approximately 2.9% of tests on Oahu returned positive this week. Those metrics continue to keep Oahu in Tier 2 of its reopening plan and could delay the island’s move to Tier 3.

Gatherings of up to 10 people would be allowed in Tier 3, but Oahu must maintain a seven-­day average of 49 or fewer daily cases, and a seven-day average positivity rate below 2.49% for two weeks straight.

Statewide, the testing positivity rate is 2.2%.

Civil Beat calculates at least 236 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including multiple deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health due to medical verification lags. The statewide official death toll remains at 219 and the state’s COVID-19 death rate is 1.45%.

As of Thursday, 68 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 were hospitalized, including 13 in intensive care and nine COVID-19 patients on ventilators.
