HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii reported one new COVID death Wednesday and 29 additional infections.

The fatality was reported on Oahu and brings the death toll in Hawaii to 427.

The 29 cases, meanwhile, is an undercount.

The state said for a second day lab reporting issues meant it was not clear how many new infections were actually reported. Just 17 new cases were reported in Hawaii on Tuesday.
