HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii is once again reporting 128 new COVID-19 cases statewide on Sunday along with one new death. It’s the second day the number of new cases stood at 128, and fifth consecutive day of triple-digit gains.

Of the new cases, 105 are on Oahu, 20 on Hawaii Island, two in Maui County and one reported out of state.

The new infections push the total cases in Hawaii since the pandemic began to 15,947. There have been 1,280 new cases in the last 14 days, which means those people could still be infectious.

The state’s new death toll also stands at 201. Sunday’s death was a patient on Oahu.

The island-by-island breakdown of cases is below:

  • 13,810 total cases
  • 975 cases in the last 14 days
  • 1,025 required hospitalization
  • 172 deaths
  • 1,405 total cases
  • 184 cases in the last 14 days
  • 68 required hospitalization
  • 31 deaths
  • 425 total cases
  • 24 cases in the last 14 days
  • 58 required hospitalization
  • 17 deaths
  • 106 total cases (105 associated with current outbreak)
  • 28 cases in the last 14 days
  • 3 required hospitalization
  • 0 deaths
  • 17 total cases
  • 0 cases in the last 14 days
  • 1 required hospitalization
  • 0 deaths
  • 71 total cases
  • 10 cases in the last 14 days
  • 3 required hospitalization
  • 0 deaths
  • 112 total cases
  • 2 required hospitalization
  • 1 death

The state now reports the “number of cases in the last 14 days” rather number of patients “released from isolation” to provide a better image of the cases that may still be active.
