HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state Department of Health on Wednesday reported 4,249 new COVID-19 cases and 10 additional deaths over the last week.

The latest number brings the statewide total since the start of the pandemic to 252,654.

The total for new COVID infections does not include positives through at-home tests.

The additional fatalities raise the state’s COVID death toll to 1,428.

Over the last 14 days, the state reported 6,655 COVID infections.

The state is now issuing its COVID data on a weekly basis instead of daily, citing a focus on trends, and not single-day counts, as well as the prevalence of at-home COVID tests not reflecting the true numbers as factors behind the change.

The last update was on April 27.

Below is a breakdown of cases provided by the DOH.
