VIRUS TRACKER – Nov. 13: 110 New COVID-19 Cases


Hawaii health officials reported 110 new COVID-19 cases statewide on Friday, including 92 on Oahu, eight on the Big Island, two on Kauai and one on Maui.

Seven cases were recorded among Hawaii residents diagnosed out of state. No new fatalities were reported.

Oahu officials are allocating $10 million in federal coronavirus relief funds to seven health centers on the island to ramp up COVID-19 testing and outreach among low-income and high-risk communities.

Civil Beat calculates at least 239 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including 17 deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health due to medical verification lags. The statewide official death toll remains 222.

There have been 1,414 new cases reported statewide in the last two weeks. Health officials use the number of cases reported in the past 14 days as a rough approximation of the number of active cases, or people who could still be infectious.

The daily case numbers are based on test results from laboratories statewide. The numbers include lab results from both residents and tourists. Since March, 95% of cases diagnosed in the islands have been among residents.

Statewide, health officials have recorded an average of 99 new cases daily during the past week.

The health department is now providing weekly reports about situations where the virus has spread to multiple people.
