Oregon reports 5 more COVID-19 related deaths, 678 new cases


(Update: Details of 5 deaths released)

Highest single-day case count in more than two months

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are five new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,439, the Oregon Health Authority reported Thursday.

OHA also reported 678 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Thursday, bringing the state total to 168,795. It's the highest single-day case tally since 845 were reported on Feb. 5.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 50,429 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Thursday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 27,783 doses were administered on Wednesday and 22,646 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Wednesday.

The 50,429 doses submitted to the state’s immunization tracking system on Wednesday was the highest number of COVID-19 vaccine doses entered into the database on a single day since the COVID-19 vaccines began to be administered in Oregon. The 7-day running average is now 34,733 doses per day.

As of Thursday, 824,299 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 522,780 people who have had at least one dose.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,083,978 doses of Pfizer, 971,012 doses of Moderna and 61,539 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

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).

To date, 1,340,235 doses of Pfizer, 1,212,800 doses of Moderna and 185,500 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines 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 Thursday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 168, which is three fewer than Wednesday. There are 38 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is four fewer than Wednesday.

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.

St. Charles Bend reported six COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Thursdsay, two of whom were in the ICU, one on a ventilator.

          1. They also call it an immunization, yet it doesn’t promote immunity. It doesn’t prevent infection of the virus, it doesn’t prevent the spread of the virus, and it doesn’t create immunity. Therefore the powers that be a wrong in calling it a vaccine

  1. “New Cases Surging” Kate !!! Who you gonna blame now ? Where’s your federal assistance- your Joke Biden- your pathetic rants and false accusations towards every Republican within earshot ??? I told you all from day one- Kovid Kate has no idea what the Adam Schiff Show she’s doing ! Brown’s Ex Orders to lockdown the state- shut down the schools- violate your 14th amendment rights have had absolutely no effect on this virus- which continues to do exactly what it wants. Really Kalamity Kate… a fourth wave ? That is unprecedented in terms of absolute failure- the world is laughing at the Demokrats and ‘Merikans in general who continue to go along with this farce ! Brown must resign immediately- admit failure- let someone-anyone-even that Owen guy take over… the deaths just keep mounting and she hasn’t made a single counter-move that’s been successful- what a disaster !!!

      1. Oh pray tell wise one, how does the world work? Start with the World’s Monetary and Financial Systems. Tell me what you know, it shouldn’t take long.

      1. thanks there where the ballpark we have to stay away from if we want to avoid another lockdown although know whatever the number we accrue we divide it by 14 and thats over the cases per 100,000 our goose is as good as cooked. if its over 200 than if we dont slow down we will get there as 114 after 3 days sheesh

  2. Holy Easter Surge, Batman!
    never saw that coming, who could have foreseen it?
    republicans doing republican stuff, catching the republican virus

    1. Pull your mask from over your eyes and take a look outside. Nobody cares anymore. There are people running around and gathered everywhere. The only reason they are wearing masks is because they’ve been ordered to if they want to enter a business. Your a kook if you think that is just Republicans not wearing masks outside.

      1. Thinkforurself hit the nail on the head. The general population does not care about covid anymore and for the most part never really did. Wear your mask out of respect and to try to keep our local businesses open.

        1. I care about it for another month or two, until everyone who wants the Fauci ouchi has had a chance to get it. It’s just you boneheads getting sick after that, and I really couldn’t care less.

          1. “I care about it for another month or two”… Ummmm- No ! You will care about until the Demokrat party releases their death grip on society… once again… “when you have no idea how the world works it must be a really scary place, huh?” !!!
