Oregon reports 3 more COVID-19 related deaths, 202 new cases

MGN

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are three new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,296, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

OHA also reported 202 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 157,079.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 33,847 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Saturday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 18,943 doses were administered on Friday 5 and 14,904 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 1,115,802 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 1,362,535 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 today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 113, which is eight fewer than Friday. There are 29 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one 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. “Presumptive cases are those without a positive diagnostic test who present COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a confirmed case.”…. So how many of theses presumptive cases turned out later to be ‘positive cases” ? Sorry- but this is not science ! Presumptions are no different from assumptions- neither hold up in court- as a viable excuse- or with the IRS ! More clear evidence of the hoax so many of us have seen slowly unravel since Biden stole the election and has since gone about destroying all of America. Nice work libs- now enjoy the poverty and despair that awaits your miserable lives for the next four years… this is going to get very bad.
