No New COVID-19 Data Today Due to DOH Time Shift in Data Window Reporting
The state Department of Health announced today that it will shift its data window, changing the time regular updates are available on the COVID-19 dashboard. Daily updates on the dashboard will appear at 12 p.m. rather than the current 3 p.m. time.
This change will also mean no new data, including the number of new COVID-19 cases, will be available today, Sunday, Nov. 15, 2020. The data that would be reported Sunday at 3 p.m. under the current schedule will now be reported on Monday at noon.
The most recent daily data report was released at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020.
“This additional time provides DOH and its partners a more sustainable data timeline and allows for greater accuracy in reporting COVID-19 statistics. It also makes Hawai‘i’s data timeline more consistent with the timeline of other states, counties, and municipalities across the country,” according to an update provided by the DOH.
