Oregon reports 8 more COVID-19 related deaths, as total nears 2,500; 830 new cases

MGN

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are eight new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,484, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

OHA also reported 830 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state's total to 179,930.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Saturday that 53,765 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 29,160 doses were administered on Friday and 24,605 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Friday.

The 7-day running average is now 35,236 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,452,244 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,220,018 first and second doses of Moderna and 91,967 single 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, 1,731,015 doses of Pfizer, 1,454,400 doses of Moderna and 215,000 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 Saturday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 295, which is 19 more than Friday. There are 66 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two more 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.
