PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 16 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,549, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

It's the highest daily number of reported deaths since 33 deaths were reported in the state on April 6.

OHA also reported 660 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state's total to 192,416.

Information from Tuesday’s media briefing

This afternoon, Gov. Kate Brown and OHA Director Patrick Allen provided an update on the state's new vaccination targets for reopening the economy, closing the vaccine equity gap at the county level and the criteria for lifting the County Risk Level framework. You can watch a recording of today’s briefing here and find a copy of the talking points here. Today’s slides are also available here.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Tuesday that 34,415 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 17,961 doses were administered on Monday and 16,454 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

The seven-day running average is now 34,869 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,850,101 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,413,162 first and second doses of Moderna and 113,436 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Tuesday, 1,490,512 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 1,994,968 people 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, 2,211,885 doses of Pfizer, 1,798,980 doses of Moderna and 253,800 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 Tuesday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 345, which is 19 more than Monday. There are 89 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 11 more than Mondayday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 2,300, which is a 3.0% decrease from the previous seven days. The peak daily number of beds occupied by COVID-19 positive patients in the most recent seven days is 345.

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.

  1. I saw someone spontaneously do something nice for someone today. They didn’t want anything in return, it was just a moment of kindness. It really made my day, and it cost that lady nothing but a moment out of her life.
