PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Officials say at least 610 Oregonians died from COVID-19 complications in September, marking the highest fatality count of any month of the pandemic. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the death tally increased Wednesday as the Oregon Health Authority announced 1,278 cases and 33 more fatalities connected to COVID-19, including 15 deaths in September. State data shows that pushed last month’s total beyond the prior record of 606 deaths set in December. The highly transmissible delta variant drove a summer COVID-19 surge in people who were mostly unvaccinated. Oregon’s deadliest span from 2020 occurred before vaccines were widely available.

  1. There is no surprise here- the never ending cycle of Bell Curves- peak and valleys- surge and decline are absolute proof that the vaccines- masks- and mandates are useless. I have yet to hear any medical professional or licensed scientist explain these constant surges- within months of record setting vaccine injections… more vaccines than population in Oregon- hundreds of thousands of natural exposures and natural immunity- homeless camps go unscathed- drug houses… no problem… the most vulnerable (outside of the elderly in congregate living spaces) are thriving ! Yet you all get threatened with your jobs- businesses- civil liberties ! Ya’ll voted for this ???

  2. Biggest infection peak happened then, so this isn’t entirely surprising, albeit awful.

    Republican Governor Abbott of Texas said, “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus.”

    President Trump said, “It is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine, and it is something that works.”

    He adds, “Everybody, go get your shot.”

    Every single Republican governor and living president is vaccinated.

    If you can get vaxxed, get vaxxed.
