PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- COVID-19 has claimed two more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 163, along with 93 new cases, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

Oregon Health Authority reported 93 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 4,662 cases -- 331 of those in the past four days.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported today are in the following counties: Clackamas (7), Hood River (7), Jackson (2), Jefferson (2, for a total of 57), Lincoln (6), Malheur (1), Marion (11), Morrow (1), Multnomah (28), Polk (3), Umatilla (6), Wallowa (1), Wasco (1), Washington (15), Yamhill (2).

See the table below for total cases, deaths and negative tests by county.

Oregon’s 163rd COVID-19 death is a 50-year-old man in Multnomah County who tested positive on April 23 and died on May 29 in his residence. He had underlying medical conditions.

Oregon’s weekly testing summary for the week ending June 5 shows that 20,539 people were tested, above the minimum weekly goal of 15,000 outlined in the COVID-19 Strategic Testing plan for Oregon.

As of week’s end, the cumulative positive testing rate was 3.1 percent of tests performed. This is far lower than the national average of 11 percent.

  1. How many of these 4,662 cases are confirmed cases and how many are merely presumptive? The numbers are eschewed by the presumptions. We only need hear about confirmed cases. Adding presumptive cases to the confirmed cases is just another form of fear mongering.

  2. Obviously nobody cares about the Wuhan Corona Virus hoax anymore- If you lost your job- your business- your home- your self worth-

    Tough- nobody cares !!!
