STATE STATS: Total Cases Statewide: 16,734 (+71 today) Cases in the past 14 days: **1,420 Total Hospitalizations: 1,221 (+9) Total Deaths: 223 (+1) NOTE: Noon updates are back. Only 31 of HI's 48 deaths have been added to records by DoH, there is at least a 1 month delay. NOTE: DoH is now 2 days behind on reporting case numbers, creating a discrepancy. These numbers are from Monday, which has shown to have less tests processed than Tues-Sat. *As a result of updated information, one case on Oahu and one case out-of-state were removed from the counts. **Using cases reported in the past 14 days provides a rough approximation of the number of cases currently meeting criteria for isolation. This proxy number for “active cases” resolves classification issues for cases unable to be reached or who are out of jurisdiction, for whom precise release from isolation date may not be possible to determine. It is also not influenced by lags in data entry.
