The State extends its condolences to the family and friends of the adult male visitor who is the 10th death in Hawai‘i associated with COVID-19. The individual was an adult male from Washington state in the 40-59-year age group who had no previous medical conditions and a history of travel. He had been hospitalized for an extended period in serious condition at Maui Memorial Medical Center. Six (6) new positive cases of COVID-19 were also reported by DOH Sunday, bringing the total number of cases to 580. Three (3) were on Oʻahu, two (2) on Maui, and one (1) on Hawai‘i.
Meanwhile, three additional people are under investigation as being potentially associated with a cluster of positive COVID-19 cases at MMMC. The DOH’s investigation at MMMC continues, and it appears the outbreak may have begun with a healthcare worker who reported to work while ill. A total of 45 people (29 staff and 16 patients) are now associated with this cluster of cases. All have been appropriately isolated to prevent further spread of infection.
