The Dept. of Health is reporting another death associated with COVID-19 in the state. The 16th death is an Oʻahu woman, over 65 years old with underlying health conditions who had been hospitalized since early April. DOH is investigating whether the cause of infection was travel-related or community-associated. Health Director Dr. Bruce Anderson said, “It’s hard to hear about these additional deaths as the coronavirus continues to take its toll on our community. The Dept. of Health extends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of the two most recent deaths reported today and last night. While the number of positive cases in the state has dramatically decreased, we can expect to continue to see deaths of those seriously impacted by the disease.” Last night, DOH reported that the 15th death associated with COVID-19 was an O‘ahu man over 65 years old with underlying medical conditions who had been hospitalized since early March.
