HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Of the 47 new COVID-19 cases reported in Hawaii on Tuesday, all but one were on Oahu. There was a sole case reported on Maui.

The new infections bring the total number of cases in Hawaii to 1,757.

Of those, 1,205 people have been released from isolation and 167 people have been hospitalized.

The death toll from the virus in the islands stands at 26.

It was not immediately known how many tests were conducted Monday.

Officials said the number of new COVID-19 infections reported this week is likely to be “artificially low” because of an anticipated drop in laboratory services while Hurricane Douglas neared the state.
