(Update: Details of Friday's reported deaths; Deschutes County now at 55)

Also reports first 4 'breakthrough cases' in fully vaccinated people

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are 38 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including three in Deschutes County, raising the state’s death toll to 2,094 and the county's to 55, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

Oregon Health Authority reported 517 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 149,576.

Vaccinations in Oregon

On Friday, OHA reported that 25,772 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 16,877 doses were administered on Thursday and 8,895 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Thursday.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 649,602 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 884,275 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA's dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated Friday.

St. Charles Health System reports 22,754 COVID-19 vaccinations have been given as of early Friday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 202, which is seven fewer than Thursday. There are 48 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two fewer than Thursday.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.

St. Charles Bend reported 16 COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Friday, four of whom were in the ICU, three on ventilators.

OHA is investigating 'breakthrough' cases

OHA announced Friday the discovery of four “breakthrough” cases of COVID-19. These are cases where an individual has tested positive for COVID-19 at least 14 days after completing their vaccination series.

Two of the cases are in Yamhill County and two are in Lane County. OHA is working with local public health officials to investigate the origin. Their illnesses range from asymptomatic to mild symptoms.

Genome sequencing is underway, and we expect results next week.

Such cases are not unexpected. Clinical trials of both vaccines presently in use included breakthrough cases. In those cases, even though the participants got COVID-19, the vaccines reduced the severity of illness.

Based on what is known about vaccines for other diseases and early data from clinical trials, OHA experts believe the existing vaccines are very effective.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Friday are in the following counties: Benton (31), Clackamas (43), Clatsop (1), Columbia (3), Coos (8), Crook (5), Curry (5), Deschutes (32), Douglas (18), Harney (3), Hood River (2), Jackson (35), Jefferson (11), Josephine (16), Klamath (10), Lake (7), Lane (48), Lincoln (4), Linn (13), Marion (59), Morrow (4), Multnomah (57), Polk (13), Tillamook (1), Umatilla (19), Union (3), Wallowa (2), Wasco (1), Washington (50) and Yamhill (13).

  1. No one dies from anything but COVID these days…these are false numbers and everyone knows it….keep your vaccine….just say no….don’t let them lie to you!!!

    1. There are multiple obituaries every day in the newspaper but we don’t have multiple deaths every day in Central Oregon because of COVID so it seems reasoning is wrong.

  2. Here is how you can confirm it is not a hoax. Normal average death rates by county and state are well known. If there are significantly more than that then you know something is not normal.
    You might want to talk to the front line workers who are intubating people and putting them on ventilators. That is not something that is normal for hospitals at the levels they are doing now.

    What is ‘excess mortality’?
    Excess mortality is a term used in epidemiology and public health that refers to the number of deaths from all causes during a crisis above and beyond what we would have expected to see under ‘normal’ conditions.1 In this case, we’re interested in how deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic compare to the average number of deaths over the same period in previous years.

    Excess mortality is a more comprehensive measure of the total impact of the pandemic on deaths than the confirmed COVID-19 death count alone. In addition to confirmed deaths, excess mortality captures COVID-19 deaths that were not correctly diagnosed and reported2 as well as deaths from other causes that are attributable to the overall crisis conditions.3 https://ourworldindata.org/excess-mortality-covid

    1. Wrong wrong wrong. This logic is completely invalid. You are assuming that excess deaths MUST ALL be from covid. To believe such a thing without evidence that excess deaths must all be from covid is irresponsible. Fact is, the number of deaths fluctuates and some years do indeed have more deaths than others. Go on believing your ignorance though.

        1. Gee- I dunno- when was the last time a generation the size of the “Baby Boomers” reached their life spans ? A better question- how many of these deaths were due to Demokrat states placing China V infected individuals into close quarters and shared rooms with Senior Citizens ? Your hoax is falling apart Martha ! The paper trail will lead to Oregon too. I’ve asked the question numerous times- why are there so many elderly people dying at home- but somehow tested positive for the virus weeks prior ! These people were infected somewhere ! It looks like at the hospitals- and then were sent out the door ! These reports don’t lie- you just have to know what to look for ! Anyone wondering why the OHA made the decision to stop providing this information- now knows why ! The blood-hounds are on the trail- and this aint gonna end well ! Joe Biden is now an illegitimate impostor in the White House ! He didn’t win anything- he gained access to the WH through a year long organized coup against the Trump administration- and he must now resign !

  3. The fact is that people who get this are less likely to do die than any other disease we deal with on a daily basis but they want us to believe that this is a rare and very deadly virus it is the common flu and people watch to much CNN and believe in there scare tactics. I’m not to afraid of something that has a survival rate of more than 99%. 200 and sum in icu out of millions in this state I don’t think is to serious of an issue give the stats of people in the icu due to other other causes and I’ll bet its way worse than this flu virus. Just my belief anyway.

    1. And you have a right to your opinion but don’t post that your opinion is based on facts when it isn’t and which means that you are doing essentially what you claim CNN is doing and trying to frighten people into thinking this was all a conspiracy.

      1. FACT Martha !!! Andrew Cuomo has been charged with the deaths of 15,000 elderly citizens who died unnecessarily because of his move to place China Virus infected people into the same living quarters as perfectly healthy individuals- exposing them all to the virus. Why don’t you run your anti-conspiracy mouth past the families of the victims here ? Another FACT Martha- NY isn’t the only state that pulled this move to make the virus look worse than it was to make President Trump look incompetent. Three more (and more to come like Oregon) are also under DOJ investigation- this is tantamount to murder- an execution- it was all carefully planned and carried out ! This is the Demokrat party at war with the American people who “chose” DJ Trump as their 45th President ! Deal with them facts Martha !

      2. I’m not saying its a conspiracy there’s only 48 people in icu beds around the state of Oregon and 202 people in the hospital which includes those 48 icu patients we have millions of people in this state you do the math and its a known fact that the survival rate is over 99% I was saying I’m not scared of those odds not saying its a conspiracy. So don’t put words in my mouth. Go back to your tv and watch CNN and live in fear

        1. Yes, please do the math. And then maybe you will realize that 1 percent of the population of Oregon is approximately 432,000+ people. That 1 percent of the US population is 3 million plus people. Then compare that to the flu virus. One year out and this virus has caused the deaths of nearly 500,000, the flu causes around 35,000 per year. So yes, by insinuating that we are being lied to, that it’s just the common flu and not a serious issue, you are trying to create fear and distrust.

  4. good point there bghw and of course cuomo saying he did that out of fear trump was gonna send his goons to him. Surprised they havent tried to make the variants more deadlier sounding than they have as they want us to be scared. If multnomah county can go down a risk category you know its winding down.

    1. I think the comments by Cuomo will eventually be proven a lie. There’s a very brave whistle-blower in his administration that knew this was wrong from the outset. What we will find (also in Oregon) was an attempt to make President Trump’s response to the China V look incompetent. The constant early on whining about PPE-ventilators- that Trump will never produce a vaccine- that hospitals will be over-run- the Washington University Models that projected two million dead… without real cases or a catastrophic body count- you got nothing. So states like Oregon started to doctor the numbers (ILI moved to CLI)- hospitals were encouraged to call everything Covid (and received millions in cash in return)- but that was only on the surface- we are now learning that in this desperate attempt to attack the President- that many Demokrat run states turned to the unthinkable- purposefully exposing citizens (a kind of germ warfare)- and that is exactly what is being exposed now. And make no mistake- Oregon will be found in the mix- and the co-conspirators will be publicly shamed… this is just getting underway- the worst is yet to come !

  5. Martha if you could actually read what I am writing you might have an argument I’m not talking about the whole picture I’m talking about the state where I live. Quit trying to make a confrontation I’m not biting this is my last post on this read what people write not what you want them to write.
