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


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.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.

KTVZ news sources



  1. Oregon now has 295 hospital beds taken with Covid patients. Texas has 3000 and Florida has 3500. Texas has 6.9 times the population and Florida 5. 295 times 6.9 equals 2035. 295 times 5 equals 1475. Mandates keep people out of hospitals. How is our younger crowd going to pay for hospital bills even when they survive?

      1. I will crush your mind on all levels. If you can’t understand that states with less restrictions have more problems, you can’t pass a basic chemistry test like most Trump supporters.

    1. Way to regurgitate what ktvz spews out. Now, instead of giving partial facts, go do some homework and come back and report how many of those covid hospitalized patients are there for something totally unrelated covid, yet get tested in the hospital and are positive with no symptoms, yet are now a stat for you to feel smart. I am not saying hospitalizations have not gone up, but the way they are being reported it makes it seem like herds of symptomatic patients are flocking to get a bed and that just isn’t the case. Let us know what you find out.

    2. My math may be wrong, please correct if so. OR pop. 4,268,055 with 300 hospitalizations. TX pop. 29,872,880 with 3000 hospitalizations. Quick math…oregon has 1 in 14,226 hospitalized, Texas 1 in 9,957. Considering how many more high density cities in TX has compared to OR, we only have Portland (662,549) as a real city that would be considered a suburb to say Houston (2,323,660) our numbers aren’t that far off. You really are comparing apples to oranges and considering they have NO MANDATES, the numbers are not drastically that different.

      1. Oregon was at 100 when schools reopened and Texas has been around 3000. Texas hospitalizations are about to jump big time. It’s like grapefruits to bing cherries

      1. The “vast majority of the world” isn’t dealing with the aftermath of an angry- hateful Demokrat Party that has led the nation into turmoil. One only has to look at Australia’s weather patterns (our opposite) to see that the virus is indeed weakened by hot summer temperatures… except here in the US- where we saw dramatic leaps in new cases and deaths in early August of 2020… So how does that work- that in the summer months or heated areas of our planet (Singapore Malaysia) the Wuhan Bat can’t survive… but here in the US Demokrat Governor’s nationwide send out warnings of gloom and despair- stay inside- lock down- cower in fear ! This is not science- this is ‘Merika being played… your link…

        1. Gee whiz Wishy, maybe your search for a correlation of weather patterns (as a single variable) and Covid infections is…well, maybe there isn’t one.

          1. Didn’t bother to follow the link did you. If you had- you would see a nation (80% the same size as the US) that has not suffered through four surges- economic turmoil- or social upheaval. a nation that currently has a “deaths per one million population rate” at 35 ! Granted- Australia has a lower population density than the US- but even our most secluded states aren’t able to provide those kinds of numbers. Why is that ? And why don’t you want to see the US/Oregon succeed in this battle against the Wuhan Chinese Bat ? President Trump was right- the virus should have petered out last summer- like it has in other nations… but in the US it didn’t… WHY ?

        2. Dude, you are really something else. Didn’t your idiot orange anus leader babble the same nonsense about heat, look how that turned out? I love how you and the rest of the troll tools here are being tortured by liberal boogie men. Perhaps a shot of bleach and some more Trumps worshiping will make snowflakes like you feel better?

          1. Yeh Boner… Look how it turned out… in Singapore- Malaysia- Australia- the Ivory Coast- Thailand- Cuba- Sri Lanka… all global hot spots- all with extremely low levels of your pandemic nonsense… so why was it last summer- when the skies warmed up- Oregon spiked it’s new case loads ??? In contrast- we now hear Kovid Kate talking about a complete re-opening by June… like “what” ???

        3. So again I’ll ask you why are you still here in Oregon if you hate it so much. Seems like there’s plenty of states that would welcome your angry toxic spew and be happy to have your red vote. Maybe you should like hang out with Ms. Boobert or Ms Green.

      2. Actually, you are wrong. The vast majority of experts are censored and ostracized for speaking in contrast to so bureaucrats and politicians who push a fake narrative. Unlike the majority of your commenters, I do my research. Experts around the world actually speak out in opposition of the lock downs as well as the vaccine which has failed every lab experiment since mRna vaccines were first created in the labs. Every animal test has failed with the death of the animal. Now they brought about the emergency clause so they could sell these dangerous vaccines to the public. I, for one, am no Guinee pig.

          1. This is an absolute fact- “Experts around the world actually speak out in opposition of the lock downs”… why are you spinning off this point onto some BS about “trust your doctor” ??? Are you so committed to Brown’s destruction of the state via her Ex. Orders that you can’t even admit what the CDC has been saying for months ? Shameful B- Absolutely Shameful !

            1. Shameful? Yes you are. The fact you trust your “sources” says far more about you than it does about me.
              And again back to the “destruction of the state” – are you gainfully employed? Making money? You prove that what you say is false every day, then.
              Have there been awful situations and extreme challenges? Yes. But the state is not “destroyed” no matter what your continual false claims state.

              1. Yes Barney- “SHAMEFUL” ! You challenge my sources ? Try the CDC- The OHA- John Hopkins ! And yours ??? Anderson Cooper- Wolf Blitzer- Kate Brown ! Unemployment numbers (reported right here by Runberg) as of last week- “March 2021 Unemployment at 7.3%. The unemployment rate remains higher than in March 2020, when it was 4.8%.” ! More than a year to fix what you all broke to begin with- and yer still 2% points below getting back to all that business development before you all went Wuhan Bat Krazy and locked down the state. I’ve challenged you and your wayward staff to provide the actual data to prove the level of destruction to the State/Regional economy- you won’t touch it ! Instead, bits and pieces flow out- the Oregon wine industry alone is down 1.2 billion dollars- they aren’t even a top ten Agi product- they’ve been allowed to carry on shop and store sales- that loss is just in the shutdowns of bars and restaurants ! The economic fallout is way more than anything experienced during 9/11- yet you all cover for Brown and the IT companies backing your lopsided messaging ! My predictions about how this will all play out remains well above your sugar coating… Brown is now talking about shutting down the state for the summer- again- even after 4 million negative tests- 2 million vaccines- and millions of Oregonians dependent on unemployment checks ! You all can go ahead and celebrate this kreepy krawly back to a place before you intentionally destroyed the State- the rest of us know very well that none of that is worth goody goody you try to project… this has been a shameful part of our national history- and the record books will not be kind ! Our nation was much better under Trump- the results of the attacks on him and his administration continue to play out everyday- and it’s a nightmare !

                1. I don’t challenge THEM. I challenge YOUR typically twisted untrue interpretation of the data.
                  We report facts. You’re the one full of opinions.
                  Yes, yes, Trump is holy and invincible, Biden is evil, the world changed overnight. Not.
                  Feel free to continue to try your favorite hobby, finding my large easy-to-push buttons so I feel I have to respond.
                  And I’ll keep trying hard not to waste any more of my time on you than I already have to.
                  Have a great Sunday!

                2. Lordy B- you do provide the proof to the old adage- “if ya give em enough rope”… So I post direct quotes referencing unemployment figures just posted last week… you counter with… “We report facts. You’re the one full of opinions.” Yes, yes, Trump is holy and invincible, Biden is evil, the world changed overnight. Not.”… A statement clearly void of a single piece of supporting data- but chock full of opinion… this is what we’re all up against people ! Irrational- illogical- deniers who refuse to take their bony knee off yer throat… and it’s been well over 9 minutes now !

                3. It’s not the figures you present. It’s the untrue conclusions you draw from them. Or your “selective facts.”
                  That’s your problem, not mine. I don’t have to “prove” my point about your one-sided view of the world. You do it dozens of times a day.
                  Almost deleted due to the tacky insensitive George Floyd analogy. But tacky and insensitive are your stock in trade.
                  And you’ll no doubt “prove me right” by attacking me unfairly once again.
                  And I’ll go enjoy life and forget all about you, until your next little untrue tirade proves me right yet again.

        1. “I guess I understand people being skeptical about putting a new kind of medicine in their bodies. But the truth is, we don’t know anything about anything we put in our bodies. We eat hot dogs, chicken McNuggets – we drink Mountain Dew Code Red. Now, suddenly, we’re all Jessica Alba all of a sudden. ‘Organic in my veins only, thank you!’” Jimmy Kimmel

  2. So now Oregon has the fastest growth of new cases, in the whole country, including the Angry Red States!

    Yet only 12 days ago The schools went “all in”.
    (12 days being the incubation period of “The Virus”, coincidentally. )
    And to accomplish this Hurculean task the kids are Packed in only 3 feet apart, for 8 hours.

    No, no connection at all.

    Meanwhile I stuck out in the parking lot breathing exhaust fumes, while maintaining 6 feet of social distance, waiting to be let in for groceries?

  3. Is there any way to find out each day with the new infections how many of them had already been vaccinated?
    I’m thinking we all would like to know.

    1. I bet that stat is in the dashboards linked every day. It was referred to in the news conference Friday, they said the large majority of those hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms, along with being younger than earlier, had not been vaccinated.

    2. Related to that, what should be included is the date of their second (or, if J&J, their only) vaccination date. My guess is that, since it takes about two weeks for full protection, some (most?) of those infections occurred prior to full protection. Bottom line, as always, is that one needs to wash, distance, and cover whenever possible for maximum protection.

    3. No, sameday11, you will never read the truth in a posting by the bureaucrats, Democrats, nor the mainstream media. Half of all new cases are of those who have been fully vaccinated. That number is rising, being that they are more susceptible to a varient.

  4. What can Brown do for you? She is failing us. These mandates don’t work. They are not strict enough. Let’s lock down 100%. Costco, Walmart, Safeway, literally everything. We need strong stay at home or be arrested orders. We need the military to deliver rations of food and toilet paper to our doors and arrest anyone on the spot if they leave their property. All “essential” items can easily be delivered, “no contact”. If/when people aren’t making enough money for rent/mortgage it shouldn’t matter, we need to follow science to get past this disease. Biden may even give us some more money for that stuff, so we don’t really need to worry about making money. There numbers do not lie, at least 3% of Deschutes County has had covid, actively there are 0.7% infected with the virus that kills 1% of the population that gets it. To the orange anus lovers who say this is too strict, learn how to follow the science. Get the experimental shot in the arm, you have a 1% chance of dying from covid or the shot, why choose the virus???? We need to follow science, literally the only way to get over this pandemic is ZERO interaction. Let’s try it for 2 weeks, if it’s not eradicated let’s just continue this mandate indefinitely.

      1. Improper disposal of used face masks (like an N95) could very well indeed be considered a bio-hazard… In our business we follow OSHA guidelines that require specific closed containers for all used masks. During disposal- handlers are required to treat the materials as hazardous waste- complete with satellite accumulation areas. I’ve not visited the link- but if workers are dumping their used masks into open garbage cans at work- I’d put an end to that immediately.

  5. Thanks for the info there bghw now see who says that link you provided is fake news. Middle way the libs want this to keep ransacking the country as long as humanly possible so they can pass whatever nonsense they can without most of us being any the wiser. The blue states are playing right along some are trying to distract with more lockdowns and some like new york and beetlejuice in chicago keep wanting to blame the deaths on cops not the gangs. They were upset with trump for not playing along with them and tried whatever they could to sabotage him, if he had fallen 3 times going up the stairs like sniffles did they would have tried to impeach him on health standards not becoming of a world leader.

  6. My 30/M roommate is one of the 79 today. He was running a 106.6 fever before we took him to the ER. Now locked in his room coughing non-stop. He went from fully functional to poor shape in less than two hours. I was tested today as were 5 of our friends who have been in contact.

    Please take this seriously, and mask tf up! It’s not a pleasant experience having this in the next bedroom.

    1. So where was said roommate infected ? What does the contact tracing tell us… that, to me, is more important than “mask tf up” !

  7. Better shut er down Oregon… The great reset is depending on you! Klaus Schwab is so proud of you for doing your part. Keep up the good work peasants!

  8. I work close to the medical reporting agencies. Here are the facts. Believe them if you want.

    1. COVID is real

    2. People get sick

    3. People die

    4. The numbers are inflated.

    #4 is the truth nobody will admit. It’s clear as day and stated as much. Read it for yourself.
    “ OHA also reported 830 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID“

    Presumptive is the key word there. If someone in your household tests positive then everyone in your house hold is counted as positive. This is first hand account and was told to us over the phone by the doctor. Also, you don’t even have to have a test to be counted as positive. My daughter called the health clinic last week because she may have been exposed. She did NOT have a fever but felt tired and her lungs hurt. The medical person she talked to told her she is a presumptive case and told her not to come in and to quarantine. They told her not to come in for a test!

    She was not convinced so found a place to be tested. It was negative. She did not have COVID but was counted anyways. This happened twice btw.

    My neighbors house was counted TWICE!

    The numbers are inflated. I’m not a big government conspiracy guy. I am not fully sure why they inflate the numbers but they are
