Oregon reports no new COVID-19 related deaths; 761 new cases, most in 2 months

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are no new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, and the state’s death toll remains at 2,440, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

But OHA reported 761 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 170,085. It's the highest reported single-day case count in Oregon since Feb. 1, when 964 cases were reported.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 54,790 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Saturday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 30,068 doses were administered on Friday and 24,722 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Friday.

The seven-day running average is now 37,239 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,139,331 doses of Pfizer, 1,012,176 doses of Moderna and 72,833 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).

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 170, which is 12 more than Friday. There are 46 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 7 more 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.

Additional laboratory reports for Douglas and Jackson counties

Due to a delay in laboratory reporting, OHA received a large quantity of ~9,000 electronic laboratory reports (ELRs) on April 9, 2021 for Douglas and Jackson counties. The reports are from April 2020 to April 2021. As a result, daily ELR totals are higher and percent positivity is lower for April 9 than anticipated for these two counties.

    1. Here let’s do it for them: People are not dying of COVID because COVID doesn’t exist. There is no COVID vaccine. The COVID vaccine is not really a vaccine because the FDA hasnt approved it. Trump created the COVID vaccine so we should be eternally grateful for him. We are all a bunch of Democratic sheep because we are getting the COVID vaccine. Etc. etc. etc.

  1. Thanks to all the millennial CA and WA dipsticks who have been clogging our streets for the last three weeks, thinking that just because they aren’t in their hometowns, that Covid isn’t a thing here. Load your mountain bikes back on top of your bumper sticker’d Subarus and get the hell out of here. You’re not wanted even if there wasn’t a pandemic.

        1. Only because people like you believe that COVID is worth worrying about. Funny how the Flu took a back seat to COVID the past two years. Magically, no one sufferers from that anymore.

          COVID exists, but it is way more hype than anything. It was something to beat Trump over the head with and you know it.

      1. Of course you do ! You blame all aspects of America and it’s culture- it wouldn’t possibly make any sense in your world to accuse China- blame your state government for a botched strategy… Nope.. it’s gotta be “Easter” ! Sheesh- whatta doof !

  2. Lockdowns end when media stop reporting on it. Then the woke culture will stop caring because they won’t have a voice and then by extension legislatures will start ignoring it. Just like the Flu every year.

    1. At least we don’t have people shouting that brown is right in citing science and we should follow her advice. Rate we’re going we’ll have 400 cases by Wednesday. Since too early for the Easter surge wouldn’t this be the spring break surge?

  3. Cases go up, cases go down. People need to understand that this happens because of how we behave. It is a cause and effect formula that seems to be conveniently ignored when it doesn’t suit certain people. Whether you believe in the virus or not doesn’t matter. It is here until either you get the disease and recover, you get the disease and die, you somehow avoid the disease or you get the vaccine. There really are no other choices. I chose the last one.
