Total cases reach 2,354; Deschutes County has had 75

(Update: Adding Warm Springs information)

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — COVID-19 has claimed another life in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 92, the Oregon Health Authority reported Monday.

OHA also reported 43 new cases of COVID-19 as of 8 a.m. Monday, bringing the state total to 2,354, along with 48,844 negative test results.

The new COVID-19 cases reported Monday are in the following counties: Coos (2), Deschutes (2, for a total of 75), Linn (5), Malheur (1), Marion (11), Multnomah (12), Washington (9), Yamhill (1).

To see more case and county-level data, Oregon Health updates its website once a day:

Oregon’s 92nd COVID-19 death is a 91-year-old female in Washington County, who tested positive on April 17th and died on Saturday at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. She had underlying medical conditions.

Of the 92 deaths in Oregon, 44 have been people aged 80 and over, 24 in their 70s, 18 in their 60s and three each in their 50s and 40s.

Deschutes County has reported 75 total cases and 1,735 negative results, Crook County one case and 179 negative results and Jefferson County six cases (including the four reported from Warm Springs) and 197 negative results.

Deschutes County reports 50 of its cases have recovered, and that 40 cases were female and 35 male.

Warm Springs health officials said Monday that 73 tests have been taken, with four positive results and 69 negative ones. The age range of cases is from less than 18 years to elders. Some ahve had symptoms and others did not, said Katie Community Health Service manager.

Early last week, tribal officials said anyone who attended a Ceililo Village salmon feast over Easter weekend may have been exposed. On Monday, Russell said three of the Warm Springs cases were related to the area, though not necessarily to the feast, and that there "does not appear to be a spot on the reservation at this time."

All individuals are fully cooperating with instructions given to them, including staying home, and nurses are following up with them daily.

Testing Numbers Rise

OHA said Monday it received and reported a large number of tests completed on April 20th with a specimen collection date of April 18th. Epidemiologists are working to determine whether there is a true increase in cases, a technical anomaly in reporting dates to be adjusted, based on further reporting, or any geographic or other pattern. OHA will continue to monitor case data for a potential explanation.
