HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii on Wednesday reported 5 additional coronavirus deaths and 1,047 new cases in the past seven days.

The latest number brings the statewide total since the start of the pandemic to 358,279.

The state’s COVID figures don’t include positives from at-home tests, so the real number is likely far higher.

Meanwhile, the additional fatalities bring the state’s COVID death toll to 1,699.

The state now issues its COVID data on a weekly rather than daily basis.

Here’s a breakdown of this week’s figures provided by the Health Department:
