The official state death toll from the virus is 312. Civil Beat calculates at least 318 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, 3.2% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu, that figure is 4.1%.

More than 40,386 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the state, according to the health department.

Approximately 126 people are hospitalized for COVID-19, with 26 people in intensive care units and 22 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 that age cohort accounts for the fewest number of hospitalizations and deaths.

Approximately 82% of the 315 people who have died because of COVID-19 related issues in Hawaii were older than 60.
