The Hawai‘i Department of Health reported 127 new cases of coronavirus on Friday, pushing the statewide total to 11,018 since the pandemic began. Four new COVID-related deaths were also added to the official death toll.

Two new cases on Kauai were reported, one a resident and the other a visitor. Both are in isolation. The state’s virus tracker, which maps cases by district across all islands, can be accessed here.

The county-by-county case count is as follows:

Honolulu: 10,848
Hawai‘i: 693
Maui: 388
Kaua‘i: 59
Pending: 0
Out-of-State Diagnoses: 30

To date, 802 people have been hospitalized as a result of COVID-19 infection, while the official death toll stands at 127. The real number is higher, as several deaths linked to a cluster at the Yukio Okutsu Veterans Home in Hilo have yet to be added to the tally.

A total of 10,126 individuals have been released from isolation and are considered recovered. The number of active cases statewide still stands well above 6,300.
