This week, 60 COVID-19 related deaths dating back to August were added to the state’s death toll after officials conducted another analysis of death records.

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, 2.5% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu, that figure was 3% and in Maui County, it was the highest at 4.1%.
