The Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Dashboard for Tuesday morning, June 30, at 8:02 a.m.:
Worldwide cases: 10,365,963 Worldwide deaths: 507,166
U.S. cases: 2,610,362 U.S. deaths: 126,493
According to the Dashboard, the worldwide cases increased by 166,165 in the last 24 hours, and 4,219 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported.
According to the Dashboard, the United States has added 46,199 cases in the last 24 hours, and deaths attributed to COVID-19 have increased by 565.
Health experts note that the case load is dramatically increasing, especially throughout the south and west. Several states — California, Arizona, Florida, and Texas among them — are pulling back on reopening because of case spikes and concerns over health facility capacity. But deaths are not increasing as rapidly, which health experts say is partly due to the improvement in understanding how best to care for COVID-19 patients. But many of the cases are in young people, who are hospitalized in lower numbers than those older. Health experts have concerns that the younger people may infect those older.
Hawaii now has 900 cumulative cases of COVID-19, with 722 released from isolation. Hawaii Island, as of Monday, had 87 cumulative cases with 3 active.
Hawaii has had 18 people die from COVID-19, with only Alaska, the Virgin Islands, and Guam in the U.S. having fewer deaths.
