As of noon on Monday, April 13, 2020, there are 504 cases of COVID-19 identified in Hawaiʻi with 5 new cases. The state Department of Health cautions not to read too much into the low number of cases, as it is likely a reflection of the rate of test reporting over the weekend.

The total includes 2 new cases on Oʻahu, 2 new cases in Maui County, and one new case on Hawaiʻi Island.

There are now 3 pending cases, where the island of residency has not been determined, which is unchanged from yesterday’s count.  There were also two cases earlier that were identified as Hawaiʻi residents who were diagnosed outside of Hawaiʻi.

The Hawaiʻi State Department of Health reports that there were 315 individuals released from isolation; and 44 cases that have required hospitalization.

Maui County has 2 new cases for a total of 86 confirmed positive. Of the 86 cases in Maui County, at least 40 have been released from isolation, and 7 have required hospitalization.
