Expanded County-level Data Dashboard Released

OHA published a new, expanded version of Oregon’s “COVID-19 Testing and Outcomes by County” dashboard today.

The dashboard now includes additional information on weekly trends in the percentage of COVID-19 tests that have been positive by county and weekly trends in the total number of persons tested for COVID-19 by county.

These trends help us understand changes in the burden of COVID-19 in communities across Oregon.

Weekly report shows daily increase and lower positivity for COVID-19

Today, OHA released its Weekly Report, which showed that during the week of July 20–26, 42,452 people were tested for COVID-19 in Oregon, and 5.1 percent of them had a positive result, down from 6.6 percent last week.

During that week, OHA recorded 2,241 new cases of COVID-19 infection, an increase from the previous week. In addition, 27 Oregonians were reported to have died, which is a slight increase from the previous week.

Large outbreaks have contributed a diminishing proportion of recent cases, and sporadic cases (those not linked to another case) have increased, consistent with community spread.

  1. “ Trump’s brief experiment with taking responsibility for the pandemic appears to be over, our political desk wrote in an analysis: The president is back to hyping hydroxychloroquine, falsely claiming much of the country is “corona free,” and endorsing a doctor who believes medicine contains alien DNA.‘
    Washington Post

    1. 1000 Ameericans killed by the virus a day now and big fat failing donnie continues to boeast, brag and congratulate himself on a “spectacular” response.
      150,000 daed Americans due to a hoax. Fox news must be soooo proud of all these fake deaths.
      The ranking republican on the house armed srvices committee regarding reports of Russia offering bounties on American soldiers:
      ” make no mistake. any threat to American service personnel by any country, group or individual will be met with a swift and deadly response”
      Big fat failing donnie on the same matter:
      “fake news”
      Soooooo much winning!!! Golf and a whore anyone!!! trump/pitin 2020!!! HELSINKI PROUD!!
      LYING – DYING and DENYING!!!

      1. Sorry- Just to let you know- your posts have become simply unreadable- the same jibberish- something about Helsinki proud- always completely off topic… time to use your other handles more often and tone down the cryptic mumbo jumbo- nobody gets it.

          1. We all can say the same for your “off topic rant”- but add that bit about offensive personal attacks too. Really… “You” ???

  2. Meanwhile, that doctor has successfully treated over 300 COVID patients and not lost one. The rest of those present have also been successfully treating COVID patients without losing a patient, while using HQ. Why hasn’t the CDC authorized HQ? It’s a money thing . . . HQ has been around for a long time and has minimal side effects when used properly. Big pharma wants their expensive drugs to be used, so they can make some big money. Lives lost doesn’t matter to big Pharma, as long as they can make money. How many lives could have been saved if HQ was approved and used properly? Someone is going to be liable for many deaths over the politicization of HQ!

    1. And where did you get this information? Not even Fox is stupid enough to go along with this nonsense but Trump Lemmings will grasp on anything. What a bunch of gullible fools.

      1. Yes its the typical trump derangement, hes the smartest guy in the room and hes always right… so its everyone elses fault that hes never right, probably the chineses fault but definitely some bad bat meat

      2. Yet you gave a pass to Kumbaya for quoting the WaPo… Most recently noted for having to settle with Nicholas Sandman over a libel and slander suit for $250 million dollars !

        1. KIRYAS JOEL – Village leaders and community groups issued a joint statement on Tuesday rebuking a local doctor’s predictions about the spread of the coronavirus and urging him to stop posting videos online about the outbreak or else leave Kiryas Joel and the Hasidic community out of them.

        2. “We the undersigned institutions strongly believe that the predictions presented by Dr. Zelenko have been proven false and are not supported by the overall medical establishment, specifically in his wild conclusions as to the spread of the virus in our community,” the letter stated.

    2. Reality check time…..And you believe a woman whose “sermons reveal that she believes alien DNA is being used in modern medicine, that scientists are currently working on a vaccine to prevent people from becoming religious, and that the American government is partly run by non-human reptilians.“ You question why HQ has not been approved by the FDA even though it’s been noted continuously that it could be harmful for use against this virus but you don’t question why someone with this bizarre background should be trusted? Wow, just wow!

        1. Hmmmm, “Sightings of humanoid reptile cryptids are common in the Southern United States, where swamps are common.” And Trump does seem to like swamps.

    3. You are 100 percent right but that cant be in the headlines because barney would not let any good news shine through definitely not if he is writing the titles while sitting on his walker sipping soup trying to remember what everyone who knows anything about bend is talking about. Definitely knows nothing about the geographic of bend that has been made clear many of times on his terrible feedback.

    4. Legitimate studies have controls so the true efficacy of a treatment can be measured. Without controls it is not possible to attribute the effects to one particular factor. That’s just simple science. Medical professionals first pledge to do no harm. At this point HQ’s benefits have not been found to outweigh the risks by legitimate studies. The key words being at this point. This being a new virus, treatments have change and will continue to change as more data is collected.

  3. As if we could be any worse, the President would rather you listen to Stella Immanuel about Covid-19 than one of the most respected doctors in the country… Here’s a short example of Stella’s medical beliefs:
    “Immanuel’s medical claims are sometimes combined with her spiritual beliefs. She has said that many gynecological illnesses are the result of having sex dreams with succubi and incubi and receiving ‘demon sperm’. She has said that endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, and sexually transmitted infections are caused by the spirit husbands and spirit wives. According to Immanuel, the causes of cysts and endometriosis are individuals having sex in their dreams with demons and witches. She said in a 2015 sermon that space alien DNA is used in medical treatments and that reptilians and aliens run the government. She also stated in 2015 that Illuminati are using witches to destroy the world through abortion, gay marriage, children’s toys and media such as Harry Potter, Pokémon, Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana. In another 2015 sermon, she said scientists are developing vaccines to stop people from being religious.”

    Mask up when you go out, and stay home as much as you can, people!

      1. Everyone talking bad about trump why dont you blame China for keeping information about the china wuhan bat flu virus secret for weeks when they had a very good idea how bad the virus was. Also if you believe their death count they experienced was so minimal you are crazy. They are leading the world in deaths by a long shot but keep it all secret. Trump actually did really good not knowing anything about the virus thanks to china. Time to point blame in a different direction…

        1. Go easy cowboy… No sense in confusing the locals- who went along with the CDC months ago as they pushed dangerous misinformation (don’t wear masks)- but now refuse to follow their “new and improved guidelines” as the CDC now merely copies what Asian nations have been doing since day one- I have to laugh at Lerten and Barney’s kids as the double down on the stupidity.

          This is exactly how the propaganda machine works- through double speak- selective ignorance- and political posturing… I expected better from the Z21 crowd.

        2. The CDC maintains a presence in China and began warning warning Trump in 2019. He downplayed it for months and months that could have been used to prepare. Even now, he downplays the Danger by quoting a batshit crazy doctor who opposed masks and believes in alien DNA and magic 8 balls. Ask yourself, why is Canada in so much better shape than we are?

          1. Because they don’t have a kook for a president who, along with his family play the game of ‘what totally asinine thing can we throw at them today that they’ll believe and defend.’ The whole world is watching and laughing at the gullible Americans.
