Hawaii health officials reported 165 new cases of COVID-19 statewide on Saturday, including 114 on Oahu, 30 on Maui, 11 on the Big Island, one on Kauai and nine residents diagnosed out of state.

Two more fatalities were reported, both on Oahu. The official state death toll from the virus remains at 320. Civil Beat calculates at least 326 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 has administered about a third of the 152,650 COVID-19 vaccine doses it has received from federal authorities, according to the health department.

The state’s first mass vaccination center, managed by Hawaii Pacific Health, is set to open Monday at the Honolulu Harbor Pier 2 cruise ship terminal for residents age 75 and over and first responders. Hawaii Pacific Health CEO Ray Vera has said 20,000 doses have been set aside for the site.

Vaccinations are by appointment only there and at other facilities administering the shots.

A second site is planned at Neal Blaisdell Center, managed by Queen’s Health Systems.

Over on the Valley Isle, officials had to close the Maui Health Community Vaccination Clinic on Saturday due to a shortage of vaccines from the state. Appointments were canceled through Feb. 7.

Reporting Lag

Civil Beat’s virus tracker is updated when the state releases its daily numbers. The state posts new data daily at noon. Daily reports reflect laboratory results collected up until 11:59 p.m. two days prior, leaving a 36-hour lag between when results are submitted to the Department of Health and when the state reports them publicly.

Across the state, 2.6% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu, that figure was 3.3%.

Approximately 108 people are hospitalized for COVID-19, with 20 people in intensive care units and 18 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.
