Hawaii health officials on Wednesday reported 106 new cases of COVID-19 across the state, including 73 in Oahu, 11 in Maui, seven in the Big Island, two in Kauai and 13 nationals diagnosed with one state.
Two deaths were recorded in Oahu and one in Maui.
The state has seen an average of 184 new cases per day for the past week – up from an average of 100 cases a month ago.
The official death toll from the virus is 312. Civil Beat calculates that at least 318 people have died from the disease, including six deaths in the island of Hawaii that have been confirmed by local county officials and are pending medical verification by the state.
Across the state, 3.2% of people tested in the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu it’s 4.1%.
More than 40,386 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the state, according to the Department of Health.
About 126 people are being hospitalized for COVID-19, 26 people are in intensive care units and 22 are on ventilators to assist breathing.
More than half of all cases diagnosed on the islands to date have been in people under 39, but this age cohort accounts for the lowest number of hospitalizations and deaths.
Approximately 82% of the 315 people who died from COVID-19 problems in Hawaii were over the age of 60.
