    Drivers drive through Kakaako Waterfront Park to be screened and tested for the coronavirus.

UPDATE 4:58 p.m.:

More than 260 people were tested for coronavirus in a drive up testing site today at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex.

Dr. Scott Miscovich, who is leading the pop up testing site with his organization Premiere Medical Group Hawaii, said about 1,200 individuals were screened for a test between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. today. Those who were tested were showing symptoms of the coronavirus.

He said the turnout was lower than expected, which may have been the result of people being tested elsewhere.

Miscovich, working with the City and County of Honolulu, will hold another drive up testing site Sunday at Kakaako Waterfront Park. Last week, the group held a drive up testing event at the same park where they screened more than 2,000 people and tested more than 400.

Miscovich said he expects a similar turnout Sunday in Kakaako.
