HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) – Hawaii reported 76 new COVID-19 infections on Saturday and no new fatalities. The total number of cases in Hawaii since the pandemic began now stands at 17,784.

Saturday’s case totals are actually from Thanksgiving Day because of the state Health Department’s two-day delay in reporting new infections. Given the holiday, the figures could be artificially low.

Meanwhile, the death toll from the virus in Hawaii is 240.

Of the 76 new cases, 48 are on Oahu, 17 are on the Big Island, nine are on Maui, and one is on Kauai. There was also one resident diagnosed out-of-state.
