LIHU‘E — The state Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office reported 36 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday.
Saturday’s cases are two visitors and 34 residents. Of the 36 cases, eight are children and 28 are adults. Eight of the cases are related to travel — four mainland and four interisland. The remaining 28 cases are considered community-acquired. Fourteen of the community-acquired infections are close contacts of previously announced cases or are tied to one of the active clusters. The remaining 14 community-acquired cases have no known source of infection.
Additionally, the DOH has identified a new cluster associated with a social gathering.
“As we see growing numbers of community-acquired infections, it is clear that the virus is circulating more and more widely throughout our island,” said Dr. Janet Berreman, Kaua‘i district health officer.
“We each have a role to play in slowing this spread. We need to avoid large gatherings as much as possible — whether indoors or outdoors. We need to wear well-fitting masks over our nose and mouth whenever we are around people from outside our household, especially indoors,” she said.
“We need to stay home and get tested if we feel sick. And, of course, those who are eligible and have not yet been vaccinated should get vaccinated. If you have questions about vaccines, you can submit them to ‘Ask Dr. B’ on the county’s Facebook page.”
All active cases are in isolation, and close contacts are being identified, offered testing and directed to quarantine. Investigations are ongoing.
Saturday’s cases bring the number of active cases to 218, with three hospitalized, and 1,075 cumulative cases.
I dare the newspaper to report how many of the ‘tested positive’ ‘cases’ regularly wore a mask.
100% of them is my guess.
It’s a virus. There is no stopping it, unless travel to and from the island is banned COMPLETELY. No medical travel either.
Those on pensions, trust fund babies, government workers, the stupid, and the retired are the only ones who would agree to that.
So to all you fascists out there, get over your paranoia. Mind your own business. Ask for treatments. Take your so-called vaccine. Stop your pathetic whining and hating and blaming.
Face mother nature, your fragility, your nothingness, your inability to control, and yes, face your mortality. Your fear will not change the world.
Worst numbers yet. Most worrisome is the 14 with unknown contacts.
Hard to believe we haven’t reinstated pre travel testing for everyone. Why?
Oh but wait maybe we should consult with the Kanoho team in the EOC, they seem to know everything and push there political agenda on every one, about Covid, shame on them SELL OUTS !! Come on people get if if you like and if you don’t hey that’s your choice Remember this is a Democratic state sad day for the people that are making to much money in those positions Retire already everybody if over your politics.
