Oregon reports 2 more COVID-19 related deaths, 455 new cases

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are two new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,208, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

OHA also reported 455 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 155,315.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 32,288 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Saturday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 24,926 doses were administered on Friday and 7,362 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Friday.

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 943,692 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 1,194,495 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 Saturday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 148, which is four fewer than Friday. There are 31 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is three fewer than Friday.

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.

    1. Oh thanks for reminding me – yes, I’M the nefarious “liar” who left “related” out of the headline yesterday (as always, the release from OHA was verbatim, and used the term as it has for months) – Horrors! I have corrected my egregious error, as directed by the Agenda of Evil.

      Not. Sigh.

      1. All kidding aside- what is the background that has led to this dramatic change in terminology- that is clearly shifting away from the “Deaths Due To” (a phrase still used by Kate Brown) to the more scientifically accurate “Deaths related To” ? Let’s not forget- many liberal demokrats who linger around here all day have argued till their blue in the face that the any and all deaths are attributed solely to the virus- yet you no longer agree- so what happened ?

            1. Why don’t you research Deaths above average instead. If you do proper research and if you can understand it correctly you will come to a consensus that something is killing people at an alarming rate. Imagine what that rate would be if someone like you were in charge?

              1. There are no “above average deaths”- Both the CDC and the W.H.O. accurately predicted an increase in US and global deaths as the Baby Boom Generation begins to die off. I would say that any abnormal increase beyond that- an additional 10-15 percent- is because of the increase in mental stress, suicides, lack of preventive medical care- those ancillary items that have been as a result of the handling of this mild virus- throw in the probable criminal activity by Demokrat State governors like Cuomo and Brown- who purposefully and artificially increased the misery index through any means possible- and you might see an additional blip in the data. There are dozens of nations out there that haven’t seen your “alarming” claims- this is an Amerikan politicized controversey- and some of you couldn’t spread the misinformation and lies fast enough- it’s why you’ve spent all day on this forum preaching nonsense- Now- How’s China Joe gonna make you happy ? He aint ! The radical Dems have you right where they want you- naked and afraid !

              2. Yearly deaths in Oregon have stayed roughly the same for the last 10 years despite the California invasion. The COVID numbers are markedly skewed for the political agenda.

        1. Deaths related to phrasing boosts the numbers more than deaths due to terminology. A 92y/o with co morbidities that dies from a stroke (a common cause of death in the elderly) who tests positive for COVID boosts money paid to the hospital, money to the state, and our power intoxicated governor to extend “emergency measures”. If you look at the numbers of people that truly die from COVID the numbers aren’t nearly as impressive to keep the hysteria level high

  1. Barney yes you are! (Quote) Lefty you are! I’M the nefarious “liar” who left “related” out of the headline yesterday…Thanks for admitting that!

    The Great American Hoax (Flu) is always the headlines! So if… in the Media..If you keep repeating a lie…over and over …It becomes truth? Right Barney? LMBO!!! 8)

    1. Remember back in the day- when Saturday Morning children’s TV commercials made wild claims about toys flying on their own (ala Buzz Lightyear)- Hot Wheeled matchbox cars able to “burn rubber (literally)- or how eating sugar loaded breakfast cereals were healthy ? Remember the back of the comics page when Charles Atlas told millions of 90 pound weaklings that he had the cure for that bully at the beach who would kick sand in your face- a special miracle treatment to build muscle- a strong jaw line- attract women from miles around ? Well eventually these repetitive messages were declared harmful to the youth of the nation for creating false images- basically lies. Various groups nationwide preached the dangers of such propaganda- specifically targeted messaging that was found effective in Germany during the lead up to the Nazi movement. Unfortunately- this brand of messaging has found a new home- on the internet- where media outlets (like KTVZ) create their own message- their own addictions- their own world as they see it… and they sell it off as if the toys really can fly- there is a miracle cure for adolescence- that repeating the same half truth or bald faced lie has no consequences… we all know better- but until this is regulated- it’s up to individuals to surf the internet responsibly and find messages from all sides. Unfortunately liberals and the Demokrat party don’t want that- and the term “cancel culture” (much like McCarthyism) has become a serious issue- we see examples of this practice everyday- with the “moderator” position- a guy employed to single-handedly decide if your message should be read by others- this is all too surreal- Orwellian- a time slip back to the 1930’s… You would have thought great minds like the Barney’s of our world would know better- but think again !

      1. Joe McCarthy was a Republican and McCarthyism was the Republican’s major agenda back in 1950. Thanks for the reminder on how the Republican Party has circled back and become even worse than it once was.

  2. 3 years from now, some of you will look back & admit that you spent an entire year of your life wearing a mask, cooped up in your house & avoiding all the people you love. 😭 A year in your life that you’ll never get back.
    Every single day is a risk.
    Car accident, flu, etc.
    Our days were numbered from the moment we took our first breath. Life isn’t a race where we win against the inevitable! That has not changed since the beginning of time!
    BUT, we should not be forced to live in fear.
    We went from being a free nation to being told we:
    🚫 couldn’t go to school
    🚫 couldn’t go to church
    🚫 couldn’t go to our grandma’s house
    🚫 couldn’t pay respects to a loved one through a funeral
    🚫 couldn’t leave our homes
    …and when we were allowed to do these things, we were told:
    📢 how long we could be there
    📢 how far apart we have to be
    📢 which direction to walk
    📢 what to wear
    📢 what we can buy/not buy
    📢 where we could shop/not shop
    📢 whether we could sing/worship/take communion
    📢 what time we had to be home
    Yes, our health matters.
    But you know what else matters?
    ✅ Family.
    ✅ Friends.
    ✅ Church.
    ✅ School.
    ✅ Sporting events.
    ✅ Family vacations.
    ✅ Neighborhood BBQs.
    ✅ Life.
    ✅ Fitness.
    ✅ Hugs.
    ✅ visiting the hospitalized
    Etc..etc…
    💔 One day, you’ll hug your grandma, mom, dad, or brother for the last time.
    💔 One day, your best friend will cry on your shoulder for the last time.
    💔 One day, your child will play their last ball game.
    💔 One day, they’ll have their last day of school.
    💔 One day, you’ll spend your last day laughing with a loved one.
    💔 One day, you’ll dance your last dance.
    Don’t waste the days you have by living in fear.
    Your time here on earth matters.
    Live your life while you have the chance.
    God is gonna call you home when it’s your time.
    Virus or no virus.

    1. I always enjoy being told I have an irrational fear of a deadly virus by people who are afraid of immigrants, LGBTQ, working women, brown & black people, vaccines, electric cars, windmills, vapor trails, voting by mail, environmental protections, universal health care, living wages, and face masks.

  3. Dear Martha, you stay locked up, you bend over for your masters. I have not stopped living! Life is beautiful and I don’t live in fear like you brainwashed sheep. Got to go, going to see my beautiful family. We have never stopped visiting each other and not stopping. Guess what? We’re all still alive. =) President Trump speaking soon! When is your Biden giving his state of the union address? Oh, he is taking a nap. God Bless America!
