Oregon reports 1 more COVID-19 related death, 540 new cases


PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There is one new COVID-19 related death in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,502, the Oregon Health Authority reported Monday.

OHA also reported 540 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Monday, bringing the state total to 186,877.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Monday that 17,897 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 15,437 doses were administered on Sunday and 2,460 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Sunday.

The 7-day running average is now 33,153 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,647,730 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,317,295 first and second doses of Moderna and 97,625 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Monday, 1,295,638 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 1,860,194 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, 1,939,275 doses of Pfizer,1,584,800 doses of Moderna and 229,500 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 Monday.

New features released on vaccination dashboards

The statewide and county graphs featured on the COVID-19 Vaccinations Trends dashboard now display the seven-day running averages of administered doses of COVID-19 vaccines. This improves information sharing for administered doses over time and may be helpful for showing trends for less populated counties.

The COVID-19 Vaccination Metrics dashboard now includes a toggle switch that lets users choose between two different population denominators: the total Oregon population and the population in Oregon eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The total Oregon population includes all people in Oregon, while the eligible population only includes people age 16 and older. As of today, 42.9% of the total Oregon population has been vaccinated with at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, compared with 52.4% of people 16 years of age and older in Oregon.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 351, which is six more than Sunday. There are 80 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is four more than Sunday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 2,354, which is an 18% 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 351.

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 35 COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Monday, eight of whom were in the ICU, with six on ventilators.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Monday are in the following counties: Baker (1), Benton (12), Clackamas (91), Clatsop (3), Columbia (5), Coos (1), Crook (3), Deschutes (49), Douglas (10), Harney (2), Hood River (1), Jackson (16), Jefferson (1), Josephine (3), Lane (56), Lincoln (4), Linn (42), Marion (74), Multnomah (137), Polk (12), Sherman (1), Tillamook (2), Wallowa (1), Washington (1) and Yamhill (12).

  1. As the vaccine rate goes up here in Oregon so does our Covid rate. If I am not mistaken that is the exact opposite of what “the experts” told us was going to happen. I think we should start looking for some new “experts”. Governor DeSantis in Florida seems to be qualified as his state has done really well with Covid despite having a large population of the most vulnerable people. Plus they did this without shutting their whole economy down and cheating kids out of school. Even Bill Maher a big liberal had to admit that the republicans like DeSantis did a much better job of handling Covid than did the liberal governors. “Science” is not a motto. Science is based on evidence, and the evidence points to our governor not knowing what she is doing.

    1. I agree that Oregon lockdown is harsher than it needs to be considering our low population density. There are only 4 million people in our whole state, and half of that is in Portland metro, so it seems like we are all getting strict lockdowns regardless of the density conditions or demographic/risk profile of populations that exist in our local areas.
      For the comment that the vaccine rate is going up and so is the covid rate, that seems fairly explainable for a couple of reasons… immunity from the vaccine takes time to build up and the two shots are 3 – 4 weeks apart. And even though people are getting vaccinated there is still a big portion of the population that hasn’t gotten it (pretty much everyone under 18), and those who don’t want it. And those two groups will still make up a big portion of the population and until those groups get vaccinated then… not sure what you’re expecting to happen? This is why the concept of herd immunity is talked about. We can get there the slow painful way through constant climbing confirmed cases and lockdowns, or the easy way with the readily available and proven safe tool – a vaccine. But we just love to do things the hard way, so here we are.

      1. Seems that way as of late with the z jman i mean was surprised at all the posts that semeed to be in favor of brown’s strictness in implementing the 3rd lockdown. Almost like since that slanted piece showing 4 central oregonians all in favor for a permanent mask they have gone to lengths to align themselves to the left. When she has a problem with liquor stores and the virus she will put her foot down about it and z will spring into action. As swedish chef was saying we do things the hard way and she’s seeing crook county as the same as multnomah but we better settle in as the lockdown will probably go to fourth of july and the fair will be cancelled it is what it is, what can you do herfskerdooo

  2. Hey barney and ktvz I got a hot story for you. Since you guys like being the leader in telling on businesses that aren’t obeying Kate’s unlaws you should do a bunch of story’s on liquor stores since most of them aren’t bigger than 500 sq. Feet they should only have 1 employee working with one customer at a time right? You guys could tattle tale on all the liquor stores around central oregon. Or do you only do that against non state run businesses because your scared of Mr. I mean ms. Kate?

    1. Actually a friend of mine summed it up really good. Its because the Liquor stores are regulated by the government and the restaurants aren’t. The state of Oregon gets no tax off a plate of food like they do off a a bottle of booze. Shut down the liquor stores and the state gets no money.

  3. Since starting Feb of last year the CDC stated that ANY death caused by a respiratory illness, be it any of the Flus or Pneumonia, had to be recorded at a COVID death what did they REALLY die from?
