HAWAII’S Governor David Ige has warned tourists to stay away from the US state for now as it grapples with an escalating number of Delta cases.
“I encourage everyone to restrict and curtail travel to Hawaii as it’s not a good time to travel to the islands,” Ige said.
Cases of COVID-19 cases in Hawaii have risen 36% in the last two weeks, while hospitalisations have surged by 78%, The New York Times reports.
In a bid to discourage tourists from arriving, Ige has restricted access to rental cars & eateries.
