Oregon reports 3 more COVID-19 related deaths, 794 new cases

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are three new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,498, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

OHA also reported 794 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 185,597.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Saturday that 40,318 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 28,021 doses were administered on Friday and 12,297 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Friday.

The seven-day running average is now 34,801 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,617,050 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,309,663 first and second doses of Moderna and 95,600 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, 1,940,445 doses of Pfizer, 1,575,700 doses of Moderna and 228,800 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 331, which is three fewer than Friday. There are 71 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two fewer than Friday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 2,268, which is a 23.3% increase from the previous seven days. The peak daily number of beds occupied by COVID-19 positive patients in the most recent seven days is 339.

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.

  1. How did Deschutes county join others like counties in Florida, Texas, and Michigan at winning at high numbers of infections? The answer is simple. There are factors such as tourism but it’s mostly from self importance and stupidity. Congratulations to the self interest of yourselves versus the interest of our beautiful nation. “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country” and get a vaccine!

    1. I think one reason some people aren’t getting it is that it is not fda approved and if there is a complication there is nothing you can do, it’s on you. This includes anything from anaphylaxis at time of vaccination or long term issues that we don’t know about yet as it is a new type of “vaccine” because it has not been tested long term, or even death (yes there have been deaths from these vaccines). Since this is really still a trial, if you get the vaccine you are actually part of the study. How about this, if you get the vaccine great, I respect anyone who does. And on the other side of the coin, if you decide to not get the vaccine or want to wait because it is so new, how about you respect those people. But you won’t, you point your finger as if you know anything about the vaccines and blame them for being terrible people. You are basically saying someone is not American if they choose not to get the vaccine in that post. And that is disgusting. Also, you are blaming a pandemic on people that didn’t get the vaccine yet, that also is disgusting. Again, are you wearing two masks as cdc recommends? If not maybe you caused the entire pandemic, see how that goes, it’s not helpful to blame anyone for this, it’s a respiratory virus, they spread that’s what they do. https://www.newsweek.com/fact-check-are-pharmaceutical-companies-immune-covid-19-vaccine-lawsuits-1562793

      1. “A review of available clinical information including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records revealed no evidence that vaccination contributed to patient deaths.” CDC 4/27/21.

            1. The vaccine has killed many. There are many, who were otherwise healthy, that have died shortly after receiving the so called vaccines. Must be a mere coincidence right Barney

                1. “Correlation is not causation. But that’s from the scientists you don’t trust.”,,, Are those the ones who went from Death “due to” the covid virus or Death “related to” the covid virus” ??? Obviously it isn’t just scientists we no longer trust !

                1. Is a death from covid or due to covid or with covid like symptoms Martha? See it’s tricky how they manipulate you. You seems smart. But, you are not.

            2. So Barney, I thought you were a moderator. Now. you are some kind of vaccine expert. I’d like you to contact these families of people that have died from the vaccine and educate them.

          1. You made a bunch of statements without any factual backup, as usual. Maybe you had better read your link, again, not just the headline. I do not respect anyone like you that has an agenda to spread lies and misinformation. One can only wonder why? And for your info, the CDC recommends masks that have two layers which is what most masks have.

            1. Factual back-up from the article above- Demokrat Blue Da-Shoots Kounty- home to liberal liars and data deniers- “ELR Percent Positivity- 10.3%”… Crook and Jefferson Counties at 7% ! Once again- the evidence is clear. Demokrat strongholds like Multnomah-Washington-Da-Shoots… are all dragging the state down with their defiance-ignorance-and “resistance” ! Sorry dum-dum- dums… You Biden-Brown Crack and Meth supporters are just gonna have to suffer a little more !

            2. How about this Martha if you get the vaccine that is NOT fda approved and have issues, you are on your own. Is that good enough for you to get through your covid skull?

        1. Pharmaceutical companies have no liability for their vaccine products. I ask, if they are so “safe” why can you not seek damages in a court of law if you are harmed by them?
          There is a special “vaccine court” that they have but it may as well be a kangaroo court.

      2. Anti vaccers and vaccers can be bad human beings. Being selfish or ignorant does not make you a bad human being. The problem is that we are becoming dumb at a time where we need to be smarter.

        1. Just listen to jonasty self. You actually believe those who are trying to protect themselves from a would be poison jab are the ones being stupid. Wow, you are truly ignorant of truth.

        2. I am not a anti vaccer. Up to date on everything. But I am not going to be a test subject to a experimental medication not FDA approved. Go ahead and get it tough guy and stop being a jerk and judging people for not getting it because you know….science.

      3. From the article you linked: “Pharmaceutical companies are protected from liability regarding the COVID-19 vaccines. If someone has an allergic reaction or injury from one of the vaccines, they can petition to receive compensation from the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP).” You didn’t even write one sentence without a demonstrably inaccurate statement.

    2. Why is it all you vaxxers are pushing it so hard to get vaxxed I thought this was America the land of the free we are free to make up our own minds so quit pushing there agenda on us that don’t want it or are waiting to see the effects of it I have not spread this virus to anyone and yes I have been tested to see if I have ever had it. So please quit pushing what you believe on us that don’t. Come on Martha lets here your condescending remarks and go.

      1. Hey, your body, your choice. Only there’s a lot of businesses out there that would like to be open without the threat of people getting sick because they are open. But that’s ok, you don’t seem to care about the welfare of our community only about trying to convince others of some unfounded fear of a vaccine. Why don’t you go have a Big Mac, fries and a supersized coke or how about a few hot dogs.

        1. “hey your body your choice” but I’ll let you know I hate you if you don’t get vaccinated. Very articulate Martha. Hope you did get vaccinated.

          Have they told you when the booster is scheduled for yet? YOU GIMP

  2. You can go to the Kentucky Derby with 45,000 other fans, but here in Deschutes County with less than 1% of the population actively infected you can’t go into a restaurant. Peculiar.

    1. What’s the over/under on the lockdown lasting till after the fourth of July? I have a feeling Brown will get the county fair cancelled again saying it’s too risky in her mind.

        1. Yes it would- for those of us who understand the economic value these events bring to local towns… failure to start to generate our own tax revenue is drying up yer federal dollars- that you depend on fer yer Guvment cheese.. I’m sure those of you on fixed incomes are just starting to feel the pinch- “The Consumer Price Index, the measure of the average change in the prices paid by U.S. shoppers for consumer goods, increased 0.6% in March, the largest rise since August 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”…. Meaning that once Biden has driven gas prices over $4/gallon… like… “British inflation hit 0.7% in March, fueled by the prices of oil and clothing.” You’ll be shopping at the Two Dollar Store for your Mac and Cheese ! Enjoy the return to 2012- got yer Obama phone yet ?

        2. Touch of sarcasm there I detect, like you would be more than ok with the fair being cancelled again. The extra money helped me out working it last decade.

  3. You idiots just don’t get that we’re closing again because we’re currently among the highest infection rates. You want to be in the same boat as india I see. Stop bitching and start helping and this will be over.
