HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii on Wednesday reported 85 new COVID-19 cases statewide. However, officials said that number is lower than the actual reality of new cases due to an “electronic lab reporting system interruption.”

The cases left out of today’s count will be added in tomorrow’s total.

There were also three new COVID-related fatalities. Hawaii’s COVID death toll now stands at 532.

Of the new cases Wednesday, 50 were on Oahu, 18 on Hawaii Island, 17 on Maui and three on Kauai. Meanwhile three cases were removed from the out-of-state count.
