The Hawai‘i Department of Health reported 90 new cases of coronavirus Friday. The statewide total now stands at 12,203.

No new cases were reported on the island of Kaua‘i, where three cases remain active, according to DOH statistics. The state’s virus tracker, which maps active cases by district across all islands, can be accessed here.

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

  • Honolulu: 11,026
  • Hawai‘i: 700
  • Maui: 388
  • Kaua‘i: 59
  • Pending: 0
  • Out-of-State Diagnoses: 30

To date, 819 people have been hospitalized as a result of COVID-19 infection, while at least 132 have died. The state’s official death toll is still missing a dozen fatalities reported at the Yukio Okutsu State Veterans Home in Hilo, as they move through the verification process.

A total of 10,215 people have been released from isolation, putting the number of active cases statewide well below 2,000.
