Oregon reports one COVID-19 death, 24 new cases

(Update: More details, corrected new case count)

Deschutes, Jefferson counties each add one case to tally

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- One more Oregonian has died of COVID-19, raising the death toll to 145, the Oregon Health Authority reported Thursday.

OHA also reported 24 new confirmed cases and no new presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 8 a.m. Thursday,, bringing the state total to 3,817, along with 101,407 negative results.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Thursday are in the following counties: Coos (1), Deschutes (1), Jefferson (1), Malheur (3), Marion (4), Multnomah (8), Umatilla (3), Washington (3).

Oregon’s 145th COVID-19 death is a 93-year-old woman in Polk County, who tested positive on May 2 and died on May 20 in her residence. She had underlying medical conditions.

Deschutes County had one new case reported Thursday, for a total of 117 and 4,125 negative results. Jefferson County reported one more case, for a total of 25, with 689 negative results. Crook County remains at one case, with 435 negative results.

Note: Due to data reconciliation, two confirmed cases originally reported in Josephine County were determined not to be cases. They were subtracted from Wednesday’s state total, and the total number of cases in Josephine County went down to reflect this change.

Eight presumptive cases also were updated and their case status was changed to reflect the new information (five suspect, three confirmed).

Of the total statewide cases, 6 percent have been 80 and over, 9 percent in their 70s, 13 percent in their 60s, 18 percent in their 50s, 17 percent in their 40s, 17 percent in their 30s, 15 percent in their 20s, 4 percent 10-19 and 1 percent 9 or younger. One case did not have age group available.

OHA also has provided a Public Health Indicators Dashboard to enable communities across Oregon to monitor COVID-19 in the state.

The dashboard, which will be updated weekly on Thursdays, provides a transparent report that presents complex epidemiological data in an interactive, easy-to-understand way.

The dashboard displays three key indicators:

  • COVID-19 disease
  • Severe COVID-19 burden
  • Active Monitoring Capacity

All are key to monitoring the progress of the “stop, watch and redirect” process for determining progress in the phased reopening of the state. The indicators include emergency room visits, hospitalizations and active monitoring.

    Now look at her fussing about over all that debt and financial fall-out… there’s your real crisis- and it’s been completely manufactured by an out of control Democrat Governor who has done this with contempt and a large dose of arrogance… Portlander’s votes have had serious consequences !
