The official state death toll from the virus remains at 309. Civil Beat calculates at least 315 people have died from the disease, including six deaths on Hawaii island confirmed by local county authorities still pending medical verification by the state.

Across the state, 3.4% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu, that figure is 4.4%.

More than 35,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the state as of Friday, Hawaii News Now reports. The islands have received 91,700 doses to date.

Approximately 129 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 as of Friday, with 24 people in intensive care units and 20 using ventilators for breathing support.

More than half of all cases diagnosed in the islands to date have been among people younger than 39 years old, but those in that age cohort account for the fewest number of hospitalizations and deaths.

Approximately 82% of those who have died because of COVID-19 related issues in Hawaii were older than 60.
