COVID-19 dashboard expanding

HONOLULU — The Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency, in collaboration with the state Department of Health, will launch an expanded COVID-19 dashboard on Monday, Nov. 2, at 3 p.m.

This expanded dashboard will update daily at 3 p.m. and provide access to daily COVID-19 case counts, seven-day case averages, positivity rates and the number of deaths caused by COVID-19.

The dashboard will also feature a county-by-county summary of hospital resources, including the availability of intensive-care-unit beds and ventilators. It also includes graphics which depict the number of daily visitor arrivals, state tax revenues, unemployment claims and bankruptcy filings.

The expanded dashboard will also be accessible on mobile devices.

“In addition to virus data, this new COVID-19 dashboard will provide a single site where users can find data on Hawai‘i’s economy, as well as additional information on travel, tourism and how hospitals are coping with the pandemic,” said HI-EMA Administrator Luke Meyers.

HI-EMA will maintain and update the dashboard, which launched in early September, with content provided by DOH and its partners in the medical profession.

“What began as a health dashboard is now evolving and maturing as we continue our fight against COVID-19,” said DOH Director Dr. Libby Char. “Measuring our progress, preparing and planning for our entire state involves much more than counting positive cases. We appreciate HI-EMA’s work to enhance and maintain the data dashboard.”

The new dashboard can be found at hawaiicovid19.com/dashboard/, which is linked to the state’s COVID-19 website, hawaiicovid19.com/.
