No new Oregon COVID-19 deaths; 64 new cases

Oregon coronavirus MGN

Sixth day in past 2 weeks with no new deaths; new case counts steady

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The state’s death toll from COVID-19 is unchanged from Friday and remains at 137, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday. It's the second straight day and sixth day in the past two weeks with no new deaths reported by OHA, though dozens of new cases again were added.

OHA reported 64 new confirmed cases and seven new presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 8 a.m. Saturday, raising the state total to 3,612, along with 88,587 negative test results.

The new confirmed and presumptive cases reported Saturday are in the following counties: Clackamas (4), Clatsop (1), Deschutes (1, for a total of 95), Lane (3), Linn (1), Malheur (2), Marion (27), Multnomah (22), Umatilla (2), Wasco (2), Washington (8) and Yamhill (2).

Note: Due to four positive lab results, four presumptive cases are now considered confirmed cases, but they do not impact the confirmed case counts in Saturday’s statewide total. These cases have been added as new confirmed cases in the list of new cases by county.

During routine data reconciliation, confirmed cases originally reported in the following counties – Baker (2), Douglas (1), and Wallowa (1) – were determined not to be cases. They were subtracted from Friday’s state total, and the total number of cases in each county was reduced to reflect this change.

Deschutes County reported its 95th case, along with 3,527 negative test results. Crook County remains at one case, with 384 negative results, and Jefferson at 24 cases, with 593 negative results.

Statewide, the largest share of the 137 deaths, 65, have been among those aged 80 and over, while 39 were in their 70s, 26 in their 60s, five in their 50s and three in their 40s, with none younger.

But among the 3,612 Oregon COVID-19 cases, just 6 percent have been in their 80s, while 9 percent were in their 70s, 14 percent in their 60s, 17 percent each in their 50s, 40s and 30s, 15 percent in their 20s, 3 percent ages 10-19 and 1 percent 9 or younger.

Statewide, 58 percent of the deaths were male and 42 percent female, while 47 percent of the cases were male and 53 percent female. Nearly three-fourths (74 percent) of the cases were not hospitalized, while 19 percent were; that data was not provided for the other 7 percent.
