VIRUS TRACKER — MAY 18: No New COVID-19 Cases – Honolulu Civil Beat

Editor’s note: As the number of new cases of coronavirus in Hawaii continues to flatten, we’re adjusting our daily tracking stories to give you the topline data along with links to websites where you can dive deeper. We’ll be updating these graphics daily when the state Department of Health releases new numbers. Others that show how Hawaii compares nationally refresh automatically when those sites are updated.

Hawaii health officials documented no new cases of COVID-19 on Monday. It is the fifth time this month that no new cases have been confirmed by the Department of Health.

The state’s infection count remains at 640.

Nearly 90% of people diagnosed with COVID-19 in the islands to date are counted as “released from isolation” by DOH, meaning they’ve met state criteria for release and no longer show signs of the infection.
