At least 124 new cases of coronavirus were reported in Hawaii on Thursday.
That's a 14% increase over the previous record high set Wednesday and is the state’s fifth record day in the past week.
Government officials in Hawaii are considering rolling back part of their reopening plans to respond to the surge. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said Wednesday he wanted to close all bars on the island of Oahu for three weeks because some recent Covid-19 clusters have been traced to bars.
The proposal is awaiting Gov. David Ige's approval.
