Oregon reports 3 more COVID-19 related deaths, 365 new cases

MGN

 PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are three new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,322, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

OHA also reported 365 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 159,392.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 32,429 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Saturday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 18,556 doses were administered on Friday and 13,873 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 1,301,968 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 1,575,705 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 104, which is 19 fewer than Friday. There are 23 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which did not change from 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. Funny, the government restricts everything now because of covid. The restaurants are dying because of the lockdowns. But, illegal immigrants are let in by the thousands without any restrictions that the government puts on it’s own people. You realize they are in large groups, tested positive and we are letting them just become citizens? Pay for their medical, probably give them a college education while vets are homeless. Since January over 1500 migrants tested positive, yet were allowed ILLEGALY into the US. Think about this the next time you try to go to a restaurant and they only allow 25-50% occupancy. Shoot, 1500, now it’s probably up to Deschutes County levels. WTF??? Biden cares more about illegal aliens than YOU!!!https://nypost.com/2021/03/08/surge-in-covid-positive-migrants-being-released-in-us/

        1. I’d rather 1500 people came north striving for the American dream, than a million of you ungrateful MAGA boomers weighing us down with your hate and lies and stupidity. Yes, I’d be good with that.

      1. Stand up and stop being such a pathetic dope smokin’ whimp. Since Lerten won’t put a stop to your constant drivel- I will… Read it and weep: “CDC Says Vaccinated People Can Visit Each Other Mask-Free” By Josh Wingrove and Fiona Rutherford-March 8, 2021, 8:00 AM PST Updated on March 8, 2021, 8:58 AM PST…. Damn science deniers that dominate this thread are absolutely hopeless !
        https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-08/cdc-loosens-rules-for-vaccinated-people-but-discourages-travel

        1. Just because old angry boomers like you have thanklessly gotten your shot doesn’t mean the rest of us have. So in the mean time, sit down, because it’s not over for the rest of us yet. And wear your mask. And stay minimum 6′ away at all times. So I don’t have to smell your smell.

          1. The “rest of you” are not part of the “at risk” elderly population- and if you are morbidly obese- suffering from heart disease- have had a stroke- or long term diabetes- then you’d better get back inside and stay on your ventilator like you have been for the past 30 years… cause as the headline states (again) “deaths RELATED to Covid19” ! The rest of us have managed just fine.

            1. Actually, we enjoyed an IPA at Immersion today after we bought a used truck on craigslist with our stimulus money that Joe got for us with exactly zero repubican votes. Good job Joe, and thanks for the pickup!

  2. Headline screams… covid19 “related” death ! Can anyone explain how this dramatic shift in vocabulary- away from “deaths by covid” became “deaths related to covid” occurred ? Nobody from KTVZ will offer up an intelligent response and I dare say- none of their peanut gallery know either. This is scandalous behavior and we demand a clear explanation from the OHA and Z21- who has agreed to the change in terminology- so they clearly know the details… Simple question- so why the lack of transparency ???

    1. Hey Keyzer Snorze- I see where you ran your mouth all night long on every post I wrote ‘cept this one… WTH- you and Barney should have been able to come up with something by now ! Kovid Kats Outta The Bag folks- KS is “one of them” !

  3. The article that you reference actually says that “Since Jan. 25, 1,553 individuals have been tested for coronavirus after crossing the US border there, he said.” Tested, not tested positive. 108 tested positive last week. And Biden does not impose state COVID guidelines. It is up to the individual states to set those guidelines. I understand your point, but you are misleading in your statement.
