HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii’s COVID-19 death toll climbed by two Sunday, bringing the total number of fatalities to 233.

The two new deaths were reported after seven fatalities were added to the count on Saturday — two of which occurred more than two weeks ago. They were finally added to the count after the DOH received updated information.

Also on Sunday, 123 new COVID-19 infections were reported across the islands: 97 on Oahu, 14 on Hawaii Island, six on Kauai, four on Maui and two more out of state.

The total case count has now risen to 17,220 since the pandemic began.
