(BIVN) – There was only one newly reported case of COVID-19 in the State of Hawaiʻi today, bringing the statewide total to 632. The case was identified on Oʻahu.
On Hawaiʻi island, the total number of people tested positive for Hawaii Island remains at 75. “From this, 74 have been cleared as recovered with the remaining 1 being quarantined at home and monitored by the Department of Health,” said the Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense agency. “At this date, for Hawaii Island, no one is hospitalized.”
According to the message from the County on Sunday morning:
These are very good numbers for Hawaii Island and Hawaii State, so much gratitude to the health care family for their guidance, hard work, and care. So proud of Hawaii State, being the number 1 in the nation of testing per capita, so proud of Hawaii being in the top two states of having the lowest active cases identified.
This reinforces the importance of following the policies of face covering, distancing, gatherings, cleanliness, and keeping yourself physical and emotionally healthy. We need to continue the good work following the preventive policies to keep Hawaii safe, and do our part to stop this virus from affecting the beautiful lifestyle of Hawaii.
Thank you very much for listening, a wonderful Mother’s Day to you.
