Hawai‘i County Civil Defense on Tuesday morning had confirmed 39 total Big Island cases, the number jumping significantly due to a case cluster at a Kailua-Kona fast food restaurant. Currently, the cluster stands at eight infections, all of whom are family members or coworkers of the restaurant employee who tested positive on Thursday, April 9.
