HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Hawaii Department of Health reports 549 new COVID-19 cases and one new death on Thursday, Aug. 12.
Thurday’s cases are a mix of daily cases and those not reported earlier in the week due to an electronic laboratory reporting system the DOH experienced for approximately 20 hours on Monday, August 10 and again on Tuesday, August 11.
As a result of the interruption, a delay in the reporting of cases occurred. On Wednesday, DOH officials reassured that test results can be expected to be fully updated by Thursday or Friday.
There are 301 COVID-19 cases on Oahu, 122 on the Big Island, 50 on Kauai, 65 on Maui, five on Molokai and six diagnosed out of state.
