Three more virus deaths, 70 new cases

HONOLULU — The state Deparatment of Health reported Sunday that Hawai‘i recorded three more coronavirus-related deaths and 70 new infections statewide, bringing the total since the start of the pandemic to 156 deaths and 12,804 total cases.

The DOH confirmed the 70 new cases statewide, and that the three latest deaths occurred on Maui. No further details on the three deaths were released.

Hawai‘i Island, separately Sunday, reported the first COVID-19 death at the Live Care Center in Hilo, the second nursing home in the area to be experiencing a major cluster of virus cases.

The death brings the island’s reported coronavirus death toll to 30, with 27 of the fatalities among residents of the Yukio Okutsu State Veterans Home. However, the state’s official death toll included only 15 Hawai‘i island fatalities as of Saturday.

In addition to the 15 Big Island deaths, the official death toll includes 128 on O‘ahu, and 12 on Maui, while one fatality was a Kaua‘i resident who died on the mainland.

Sunday’s new infection cases include 53 on O‘ahu, 15 on the Big Island, and two on Maui, officials said.

The U.S. death toll was nearly 210,000 Sunday.

    “No further details on the three deaths were released.”

    As far as I’ve seen KITV is the only news station in Hawaii reporting the details of the death. Of the 11 deaths a couple of days ago all had underlying health conditions. 6 were over 80, etc. They have the details and are releasing them. If you want to know them watch KITV,

    You figure.

    Do all the residents in the neighborhood use face mask when they walk outside? Pretty much spaced out. And there are hardly any sulfuric acid or other chemicals in the air, except for the Lihue Area. Everything is like clean and no breathing carbon monoxide poisoning. Not that I would concern myself with any of these statistics. But it’s there.
