Hawai‘i COVID-19 Cases

News Release from Hawaii DoH, November 13, 2020 (two sections)

SOURCE FOR THIS SECTION: (updated daily at 1200)

On 11/13/2020, the Hawai‘i Department of Health reported 110 new positive cases. There are 8 cases on Hawai‘i Island, 2 on Kaua‘i, 1 on Maui, 92 on O‘ahu, and 7 out of state for a cumulative total of 16,412 cases statewide (reported since 2/28/2020). In the coming days, this update will be removed and people will be directed to the data dashboard for the daily case numbers on each island.

A total of 589,797 tests have been performed and results received for the state.

(4,860 new tests by subtraction**)

(4,088 neg + 97 pos = 4,185 new tests per dashboard.)

NOTE: Per DoH, dashboard test numbers are distributed by the date the test was performed, not the date result was reported.  Additional results will be added to each day's dashboard total over then next few days as late test results trickle in.  Subtraction method includes tests and new cases from tests performed prior to today.  

110 / 4,860 = 2.3% positive per subtraction

97 / 4,185 = 2.3% positive per dashboard

If you have recovered from COVID-19 and want to help by donating plasma, register to donate today.

**Using cases reported in the past 14 days provides a rough approximation of the number of cases currently meeting criteria for isolation. This proxy number for “active cases” resolves classification issues for cases unable to be reached or who are out of jurisdiction, for whom precise release from isolation date may not be possible to determine. It is also not influenced by lags in data entry.

(***HFP EDITOR’s NOTE: Numbers marked with ‘***’ are derived by subtracting yesterday’s total from today’s.)

†One case is a Lanai resident whose exposure is on Maui Island and who will be remaining on Maui Island for the interim.

‡Includes Hawaii residents hospitalized out of state.

§Includes cases that meet isolation release criteria (Isolation should be maintained until at least 3 days (72 hours) after resolution of fever and myalgia without the use of antipyretics OR at least 10 days have passed since symptom onset, whichever is longer). (The cases that have died and one case that has left the jurisdiction have been removed from these counts).

Positive cases include presumptive and confirmed cases, and Hawaii residents and non-residents; data are preliminary and subject to change. Note that CDC provides case counts according to states of residence.
