Oregon reports 5 more COVID-19 related deaths, 567 new cases

MGN

PORTLAND, Ore.  (KTVZ) — There are five new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,446, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

OHA also reported 567 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 171,398.

Vaccinations in Oregon

Effective Tuesday, OHA has asked all of the state’s vaccine providers to immediately pause administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, following an announcement this morning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

OHA reported that 29,935 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Tuesday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 19,831 doses were administered on Monday and 10,104 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

The seven-day running average is now 38,660 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,194,369 doses of Pfizer, 1,036,596 doses of Moderna and 85,148 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today, 916,207 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 1,447,624 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, 1,460,745 doses of Pfizer, 1,213,000 doses of Moderna and 213,300 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 today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 197, which is 20 more than Monday. There are 52 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is four more than Monday.

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.

St. Charles Bend reported 10 COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Tuesday, two of whom were in the ICU, one on a ventilator.

      1. Actually if you do some research you’ll find that when these people died the underlying cause was from a pre-existing condition. Yes they may have tested positive for covid-19 so the hospitals check the covid19 box and they would receive $158,000 per case. Months later the coroner’s report shows the cause of death was the pre-existing condition therefore the patient was on their death bed and going to die anyways. Go do your homework come back and prove me wrong.

        1. Yes, USA Today just covered a story that the cdc just admitted that there are actually only 6% of the Covid deaths that are recorded are actually real Covid deaths. All others that have been recorded as a Covid death they actually died from something else. The total of actual Covid deaths was 9,322 for US.

    1. Popcorn the parrot…we(reality based folks) are all getting tired of this recycled mantra to minimize Covid. Without Covid, all of these people would be alive. But for Covid, they would be alive. This is how it’s done for all diseases, just because they have underlying conditions doesn’t mean they aren’t properly designated as a Covid death. That was the primary and immediate cause of death, not the underlying condition. You do realize that close to 50% of the population has some type of underlying condition, don’t you? What does it take to get through to you? Never mind, I just did it again. Wasted another moment trying to reach the unreachable.

      1. Actually No- “Without Covid, all of these people would be alive.” and you have no proof otherwise- so simply making false claims in an authoritative manner holds no weight. Even the CDC and Z21 no longer promote that falsehood- so “what does it take to get though to you” ?

        1. BGHW, you make no sense and have no credibility except with your cesspool companions here, and in your own mind. Funny, you making comments to someone/anybody else about “false claims”? Now that truly is ironic (and as I said, funny).

          1. So roll out your proof or hit the road half-wit ! These people died from their “underlying conditions”- and that’s according to the CDC and Z21 newsroom- neither of which subscribe to your idiotic claims.

        2. “What does it take to get though to you?” Actually, if you want to get through to the vast majority you should use good, science-based facts and reasoning. In the meantime you’re little more than entertainment and an easy target for valid criticism.

    2. So using your reasoning (and I use the term liberally), if a person with lung cancer gets hit by a drunk driver crossing the street, would you blame the person’s death on cancer? Kinda stupid, huh? Go back to your popcorn.

  1. Hopefully doesn’t get to the point where they say you don’t get vaccinated you will face year in jail for recklessly endangerment of human life.😕

  2. Time to analyze some data… according to the OHA- 40% of Oregonians have been vaccinated- that’s just under 2 million people. Now figure that 20% of Oregon’s population are children or teens- a group not even at risk to expose anyone (schools closed- entertainment districts shut down)… this has more than 60% of the state in the clear. I guarantee you- another 20% of of the 20-60 age group have stayed home- gone broke- have lived miserable lives- but haven’t infected a single soul…. So what is accounting for almost 2,000 new cases in just a couple of days ? In this season of sniffles and allergies- the OHA continues to con you out of your rights and promote fear with their outlandish “presumptive” case numbers ! This is a crime- and must be stopped !

      1. I see that the numbers and the math have you confused… now just imagine how your covid slip kids are gonna turn out after another year of no school. Feel free to thank a Kate today- this is on her.

    1. Well if you go by the above number that is listed for vaccines given the total is 2,877,045 with the number of people that have had Covid 171,398= 3,058,443 and all the people who had Covid during the 5 months before the announcement I’m pretty sure we shouldn’t be having these huge out breaks. Considering that New York Times reported today how we should do like Britain with just give one shot to everyone because that’s vaccinated enough and then wait 12 weeks for 2nd shot. So yea presumptive is taking over and it’s exaggerated and that’s from first hand experience of 2 times in my family being given presumptive positive when there was no symptoms no exposure, and negative test and being told well we’re going to just mark you as positive. But I’m not positive well you could be we just don’t know. Actually stated conversation

      1. Almost 3 million vaccines- more than 4 million negative tests… 20% of children excluded from all this- only 2% of deaths attributed to the virus alone… making the actual death count in Oregon “from” the CNA Virus to be (49) people over a 14 month period resulting in a total of 3 deaths per month- Is this what we destroyed our state economy over ? The Oregon wine industry alone lost 1.2 billion dollars ! This is criminal !!! Kate Brown must resign today.

  3. She wont as in her mind she is the reason this state has had one of the lowest numbers of any other state. I’m hoping she doesn’t lock us back down again as we’ve had almost 300 cases in a week as people i know who have been back to work almost 2 months are almost getting back on their feet again. Having deschutes as only county in this area locked down she would get to flex her scientific muscle again and have us begging her which is music to her ears.
