KDHO: 6 new cases Wednesday

LIHU‘E — The Hawai‘i State Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office reported six new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, July 28.

These cases are residents – five adults and one child. Four of the cases are travel-related – three mainland and one inter-island. The remaining two cases are considered community-acquired. Both of the community-acquired infections are close contacts of previously announced cases.

“As today’s cases illustrate, travel poses a risk of infection for our residents,” Kaua‘i District Health Officer Dr. Janet Berreman said. “If you travel, please take three precautions: vaccinate before you go, wear a mask indoors, and get tested after you return. Mahalo for taking these three steps to keep yourself, your family, and our community safe and healthy.”

All active cases are in isolation, and close contacts are being identified, offered testing, and directed to quarantine. Investigations are ongoing.

These cases bring the number of active cases to 43, with five hospitalized, and 574 cumulative cases. Kaua‘i’s cumulative case count includes 527 confirmed locally, three probable, and 44 positive cases diagnosed elsewhere, as they received their pre-travel test results after arriving on island.

    Would someone please tell us some scientific facts?

    Are the people who are hospitalized, do they have pre-existing diseases?

    What are those diseases?

    Name all the diseases for each person?

    What are their ages and sex?

    What prescription drugs are they taking and for which diseases.

    How Many drugs are they taking for each disease?

    Have they been vaccinated?

    Which Vaccine(s) have they taken?

    Are they sick in hospital as a side effect result of the vaccine they were injected with?

    How many years have they had each of their disease(s)?

    How many years have they been taking their prescription drugs?

    It seems more and more that those with serious Covid or Delta sickness, or death, are already under medical disease care taking numerous medications for a long time.

    Should medical disease care take some responsibility for severe covid/delta sickness and death?

    There seems to be a connection between current long term medical disease care and their medications, and the severe cases of Covid and Delta and death.

      All intelligent questions that should require an answer if we are to fully comprehend what is taking place. Unfortunately real journalism has flown the coop and the 30 second sound bite, biased and censored, has taken its place. I have to give TGI credit though, as they do allow the opposing point of view to be aired. Let’s hope that continues.

    Seems like the bulk of new cases are unvaxed Residents traveling. Did native Hawaiians not learn from history that foreign disease kills their families?

      Why don’t you go ask Mike Dahilig why he was at a wedding with over 100 tourists on the Southside last weekend. No social distancing or masks were seen.
      Thought the limit was supposed to be under 80, does that not apply to people in office or the ones who enforce the rules?
      Looking forward to your response.

      Did the Indians not learn that it was the “government” who provided them with free blankets loaded with small pox?

    Shot or no shot, the mainland is nuts with people who aren’t wearing masks or social distancing! If you go travel, self isolate FOR REAL when you get home and then get tested before kissing auntie or tutu! simple.
