Oregon reports 1 more COVID-19 related death, 560 new cases

Deschutes County's 51 cases highest daily total in over 2 months

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There is one new COVID-19 related death in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,440, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

OHA also reported 560 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 169,338.

Deschutes County reported 51 cases, the highest daily count since Jan. 26, according to Health Services spokeswoman Morgan Emerson.

Vaccination data for counties now available

Vaccination data showing the status of COVID-19 vaccinations at the county level is now available on OHA’s vaccination dashboard. It was temporarily disabled last week. OHA resolved an issue with its geocoding process, which had previously mis-categorized the location of certain vaccinated individuals.

OHA continually analyzes all its data and performs ongoing data quality checks. Vaccination data requests that included county of residence were delayed due to this issue.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 53,121 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Friday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 33,410 doses were administered on Thursday and 19,711 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Thursday.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,108,731 doses of Pfizer, 993,824 doses of Moderna and 67,071 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.  As of Friday, 859,912 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 1,374,408 people who have had at least one dose.

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, 1,363,635 doses of Pfizer, 1,215,300 doses of Moderna and 193,200 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 Friday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 158, which is 10 fewer than Thursday. There are 39 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one more 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.

St. Charles Bend reported four COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Friday, one of whom was in the ICU but not on a ventilator.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Friday are in the following counties: Baker (3), Benton (3), Clackamas (51), Clatsop (6), Columbia (7), Curry (7), Deschutes (51), Douglas (8), Grant (24), Harney (1), Hood River (1), Jackson (27), Jefferson (6), Josephine (18), Klamath (25), Lake (2), Lane (47), Lincoln (9), Linn (17), Malheur (2), Marion (33), Multnomah (97), Polk (11), Tillamook (3), Umatilla (10), Union (3), Wallowa (1), Wasco (1), Washington (83) and Yamhill (3).

  1. 165 in 4 days at this rate the governor will get her wish and we will be shut down till after the 4th of july. with numbers like this they’re making it sound like everyone in deschutes has tested positive

    1. The only stats that should ever be considered for any type of lockdown should be deaths and hospitalizations. Deschutes County today 0 deaths 4 hospitalizations. It’s been a while, but weren’t the lockdowns originally to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed?

    1. Zero deaths and 4 hospitalized covid patients in Deschutes County (of note the hospitalized may not be hospitalized because of covid, but tested for a procedure etc..).

      How are those numbers going in the wrong direction?

      1. Since you only listed one data point, your numbers aren’t going any direction at all.

        The numbers have been generally increasing since the last week of March, and increasing is the wrong direction.

        That said, they have _barely_ been increasing. We’ll have to wait another week to see if the trend gets worse. I’m not really worried about it at the moment what with vaccinations coming on like they are.

        And neither are most people, given how full restaurants and businesses are these days.

        We’re nowhere near the dark times when cases skyrocketed and OR hospitals filled up nearly to capacity back in early January, back when 3400 people per day were dying in the US. We’re down to 900 per day, now.

        1. “Barely” increasing is still increasing, and taken in context with the past weekly average…or monthly average for that matte, it’s still increasing. And it isn’t necessarily daily death numbers that are important (they vary wildly because of reporting procedures and do not really line up neatly with date of infection), it’s primarily numbers of infections that you and others should be concerned with. Infections may lead to death, but also other long term medical impacts that will burden society long after the pandemic has subsided. Listen to the experts, and take their advice.

  2. So will have the blue sphere of dismay for tomorrow’s report, too bad there is mumblings going around about another lockdown if our case numbers keep going up. At least we didnt top 700 today after having the most in 2 months yesterday, the lord willing and the creek don’t rise we will persevere. You imagine the governor is watching this thinking how to insert her authority again double tap while making us think she is caring as imagine we do get locked down again it will be through fourth of july
