For the second day in a row, Hawaii has reported a record number of new coronavirus cases.
The state reported 60 new Covid-19 cases Friday, according to the state Department of Health. Hawaii had 55 new cases on Thursday.
"Some of the cases we’re reporting today are associated with existing clusters, known cases and household spread, but others are new, unassociated cases that indicate increasing community spread,” Health Director Bruce Anderson said in a statement.
Anderson added that some cases have been traced to people “just hanging out with close friends” who were not practicing social distancing.
