Coronavirus Case Map as of April 4, 2020. PC: Hawaii Department of Health

Hawai‘i reported 20 new COVID-19 infections overnight, bringing the statewide total of confirmed cases to 371.

The newest report on the state Department of Health website didn’t specify how many new cases each county acquired over the previous 24 hours.

The 20 new cases of COVID-19 are all adults, according to a state press release. Maui’s mayor announced a second case on Moloka‘i Saturday night and both of those cases are reflected in the Maui County numbers below.

Eleven of the newly reported cases are travel-associated, two are community-related and seven are pending further investigation.

DOH reports the number of travel-related cases is dropping and of greater concern are community-associated cases. Kaua‘i continues to have only travel-associated cases and Lānaʻi, counted as part of Maui County, continues to have no reported cases.
