Hawaii Records First Corona Death--224 Total Cases
By News Release @ 6:22 PM :: 2212 Views :: COVID-19


KHON: …The state Department of Health says Hawaii’s first person who died from COVID-19 was an older Oahu resident with underlying health issues.

“It’s not clear at this time what the cause of death was, but the individual did have a positive COVID-19 associated exposure and it possibly did contribute,” said DOH Director Dr. Bruce Anderson.

He says the patient had been in the hospital when they died. The patient was tested by a private lab and confirmed positive for the virus.

“The best I can say is the individual was hospitalized recently with conditions that were possibly unrelated to COVID-19 and this test was done while the individual was in the hospital. He was there for a short period of time before he passed away,” said Anderson….

KHON: The Department of Health reported 20 new cases of coronavirus; 18 on Oahu, and 2 that are currently pending. This brings the statewide total to 224.

One of the new cases died. This is officially Hawaii’s first COVID-19 death, as a previous report was recalled after further testing.

Yesterday, Department of Health Director Bruce Anderson explained that any patient who dies while infected is considered a COVID-19 related death, regardless of underlying health conditions.

One of the 20 new cases required hospitalization. Three new recoveries were also reported, for a total of 58 recoveries.

Here is an in-depth breakdown:
Hawaii County: 15
Honolulu: 157
