Hawaii health officials reported 150 new cases of COVID-19 statewide on Friday, including 111 on Oahu, 26 on Maui, five on the Big Island, one on Kauai and seven state residents diagnosed out of state.

No fatalities were reported. The official state death toll from the virus remains at 318. Civil Beat calculates at least 324 people have died from the disease, including six deaths on Hawaii island confirmed by local authorities still pending medical verification by the state.

The state’s first vaccination center at the Honolulu Harbor Pier 2 Passenger Terminal is set to open Monday.

The state has administered about a third of the 109,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses it has received from federal authorities, according to the health department.

Reporting Lag

Across the state, 2.8% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu, that figure was 3.4%.

Approximately 104 people are hospitalized for COVID-19, with 24 people in intensive care units and 19 using ventilators for breathing support.

During the last month, cases among the 18-44 age cohort appear to be outpacing new cases diagnosed among other age groups, according to new data from the health department.

Those in the 18-44 year old age range are seeing the highest number of cases on average when compared to other age groups.

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