Hospitalizations for COVID-19 have risen to record levels in recent days.

Deaths top 800, cases near 61,000, hospitalizations top 400: 'Please take this seriously and do what you can'

PORTLAND -- The Oregon Health Authority on Thursday reported 20 more COVID-19 deaths and 1,220 new cases -- both representing the largest daily counts since the start of the pandemic.

“We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost a loved one to COVID-19,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen.

"Sadly, Oregon also surpassed its 800th COVID-19 death today, less than three weeks after marking the 700th death," Allen said. "These are family, friends, neighbors and we note their deaths with sadness and a renewed determination to suppress the spread of the virus."

“I have heard frequently from those who have refused to believe this pandemic is serious if we aren’t seeing hospitalizations and deaths," he continued. "Those hospitalizations and deaths are here, and are only likely to go up. Please take this seriously, and do what you can to slow the spread: Wash your hands, wear a mask, and limit the number of people you come in close contact with.”

  1. Election day came and went and it’s still here. We “are turning a corner” and it’s not into good territory. The argument about deaths and hospitalizations supposedly indicating this is a hyped hoax are clearly being shown as the disinformation that they are. If you are a denier, please pull your head out and join all of us that are taking this seriously. We all want people to be healthy, the economy to improve, and have kids back in school and we need your help.

    1. Maybe we should not have delayed the inevitable until the worst possible season. The virus was always going to spread just like every other virus spreads known to man. Lockdowns and restriction of movement just delayed the spread until now. Bad idea, however the case counts mean nothing. The death rate is so small it is virtually meaningless unless you are in a high risk category. The 5% in this category should hunker down until the vaccine where the 95% rest of the population keep the economy going.

      1. “The death rate is so small it is virtually meaningless….”. The US has had over 250,000 people die in the last nine months. 2,000 plus we’re reported today, 1971 yesterday, 1658 the day before that and so on. The death rate is not small nor meaningless and your post is crass.

        1. You need to study up on mass statistical calculations my friend. Every year the in cancer kills over 600k in the US. Every year! Covid is minuscule in comparison Martha. Yes death is bad, pretty sure no one is arguing that. But Covid numbers are nothing compared to so many other causes.

          1. Yep because sane individuals that look at the entire picture realize that if you crush the economy with shut downs the deaths that would be attributed would be magnitudes higher then any Covid number for yrs to come.

      2. I also don’t think it can be stopped, seems like we prolonged the inevitable. Joe Biden says he’s going to shut down the virus, not the economy. I wonder why he hasn’t divulged his miracle solution in the past 10 mos. . . . Mandatory masks in Oregon for several months, still exploding. I don’t mind if the tourists go away!

        1. Of course, I mean it can’t be stopped other than vaccines, but at least 50% of people probably won’t get one. The pro-lock down crowd needs to understand that the subjective closures we have been doing will not work. If they want a true lock down, it needs to be EVERYTHING! I’m talking all stores, banks, post offices, doctors, dentists, dispensaries, construction, ALL travel etc., not just schools, restaurants, gyms and whatever else is randomly designated “non-essential”. Viruses don’t spread only after 10pm or at certain places! A real lock down means nothing is essential, martial law/gestapo style. People would just die in their homes from starvation or other medical problems. I still don’t get what people think they are accomplishing when they wear a mask in a car by themselves, it’s so irrational!

        2. The whole goal was to prolong it; that what “flatten the curve” is. By analogy, you can easily lift a couple tons of bricks with your bare hands–as long as you don’t try to do it all at once.

          At the current measured mortality rate, if we infect everyone, that’s 7 million people dead in the US.

          In Oregon, we’ve done pretty well compared to the rest of the country, so we were doing something right… until September 15. I still don’t know what happened in that timeframe. And also on about October 15, something else changed and we started spiking in earnest.

    2. Not sure I see the connection between election day and the China virus ! Are you trying to say that some outcome from an election will tell the virus it’s time to leave ? Kinda foolish statement don’t ya think ! So here’s what we do know- that President Trump has single handedly organized the successful development of not one- but two vaccines through his Warp Speed project- all the while the media continues to ignore his amazing accomplishments- while touting Joe Biden- who’s done nothing ! American’s will regret the day that a Biden administration should ever take over the White House- it will be back to the “stoned age” of Obama- with high unemployment- jobs for China- stifling Paris Accord BS- loss of millions of jobs in oil/gas- inflation through the roof- more China virus as Biden learns he can control the population… it will be a disaster !

      1. Just the one vaccine. Pfizer was going to make theirs regardless of our OWS purchase.

        I know Trump likes to take credit for good things he didn’t do, and disown credit for bad things he did. But let’s try to keep him honest.

        OWS cost taxpayers tons of money. And for once, we can agree that the tremendous expenditure was worth it.

        It’s funny, we can agree on a couple things that Trump did that were good, but only because Trump did them.

        I’m confident that if Obama had made the same standard deduction changes to tax law that Trump had, you’d have been against them. But this way, we can both be for changes that disproportionately benefit poor people.

        It’s a small win for cooperation, but I’ll take it. After all, I can count on one hand the number of policy changes Trump has made that I approve of.

    3. Tomorrow Never Knows was a masterpiece. That song is so trippy that I failed a drug test while listening to it.

  2. Kate Brown essentially promised a plan to control this China virus in Oregon- but only if you closed your shops- kept your children out of school- stayed 6 feet away- wore a mask- cancelled holidays- birthdays- anniversaries- and everything that makes life special ! Kate Brown assured Oregonians that she was on the right track ! She fined businesses- threatened small shops- sent her Gestapo agents out break heads… then allowed massive rioting and uncontrolled demonstrations in Portland streets ! Now she says she wants more ??? Damn you people dumb !

  3. One of the things that make people doubt these stories and data is the “cut and paste” hack job of writing these stories. A case in point in the above story is: “Oregon’s 794th COVID-19 death is a 66-year-old woman in Multnomah County who tested positive on Sept. 14 and died on Nov. 10, in his residence. He had underlying conditions.” So, which gender was this death, female or male? Also, this is NOT the first time this “cut and paste” storyline has been used in mistaking gender. Makes one think there is an agenda involved. “Chinese and a snore, Sleepy Joe Biden til 2024”

  4. Day two of the shutdown Brown really did her research on this one at this rate we will be in a freeze until 2022. Shut down restaurants bars and gyms the places where all healthy people go seems logical.

  5. Also ktvz new graph for hospitalizations seems legit, oh wait the graph actually is only an inch tall when they put 6000 open beds on the correct side of the graph like we did in middle school. If ktvz could build a real graph like an 8th grader they would have nothing to show, except alot of empty hospital beds.

      1. Have you ever heard of a thing called transportation, covid patients could be moved to other hospitals in the state for treatment. I know you work from home Barney and haven’t had to take a single pay cut through all this but people can still be transported across the state.

  6. Thanks Barney for once again your terrible explanation. If you are going to put a graph up you should make sure it is real and can people can read what is actually being portrayed. Such as 6000 plus beds available and 400 occupied would show what people are looking for in a true graph. Stop suggesting the number of people hospitalized is a problem when its not. People and news stations like you are the real problem.

  7. Stop grouping the entire state on a county news source if its southern oregon and portland that caused the numbers. Thanks though for letting us know your graphs and news is a complete lie.

    1. Central Oregon is doing pretty well because your neighbors make the sacrifices and wear their masks. It’s always fun hearing maga ride the coat tails of responsible adults, complaining that things are magically going good so why can’t we all do whatever we want.
