Oregon reports 4 more COVID-19 related deaths, 424 new cases


PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are four new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,628, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

OHA also reported 424 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 199,391.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Tuesday that 25,851 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 15,160 doses were administered on Monday and 10,691 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

The seven-day running average is now 30,070 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,124,214 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,550,655 first and second doses of Moderna and 135,220 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Tuesday, 1,755,318 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,182,229 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, 2,619,045 doses of Pfizer, 2,053,920 doses of Moderna and 285,800 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 today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 274, which is eight more than Monday. There are 75 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is no change from Monday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 1,938, which is an 18.5% 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 306.

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.

St. Charles Bend reported 40 COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Tuesday, seven of whom were in the ICU, with five on ventilators.

KTVZ news sources



  1. A 24 year old passed away from Covid. The crazy right wingers think the cause of death was a car accident, gunshot, or stab wound. The most likely reality is that it was a severe case and caught this poor kid by surprise.

    1. No right winger ever said young people can’t die from it, they said it’s extremely RARE. Which is absolutely true. About as likely to die from driving.

    2. Jonas*ty. That is terrible news. However, you forgot to mention that underlying conditions were not reported yet. So, in reality we have no idea if he had some kind of terminal disease. I don’t think anyone is saying covid is fake or saying it’s not dangerous. The reality is you have a 99% chance of survival. In people in their 20’s it’s highly rare to die just from covid, you know that, you read the daily stats. Stop drumming up fear, we’ve had plenty from Barns.

      1. What? “COVID is fake” and “it’s not dangerous” has been THE rallying cry of wingnuts all over the country, including right here on this board. In fact, you agree with a response calling it a “hoax” in the post directly following this one.

  2. Gee… wasn’t it just “yesterday” when I said… “Ya know- this aint gonna last”… “284 cases is lowest count since early April” !!! And sure enough- here we are- on a Tuesday- lamenting another sudden turn upward as new cases and related deaths damn near “double” the previous day’s tally ! So again- what exactly is the science here that Kalamity Kate is following ? Why this sudden urge to throw all the counties in the state into a “Low Risk” category ? The seven day trend of 3,000 new cases and dozens of deaths is way above the numbers we saw back in January through June… when President Trump was in office- leading America towards a vaccine- calming the nation while the Demokrats panicked into girly hysterics- my how soon you’ve all forgotten… where is the outrage- the vulgarities towards the commander in chief China Joe- why is his name never mentioned like President Trump’s was day in and day out ? If you voted for Biden-Brown- the Boobsy Twins… then this is all on you ! Let’s hope you’ve learned something about career politicians with a gift for gab- but no ability to lead. President Trump will make a successful return in 2024- and rest assured- he’ll fix this mess !

      1. March 30th 2021- Number of active cases in Oregon 14479… What exactly initiated a surge in active cases, even after the vaccine had been doled out for five months, to 30131 on May 1st 2021 ??? 31 days when the virus from China refused to cooperate and continue a downward trend- even though masks- social distancing-OSHA temporary guidelines- school closures- and business lockdowns remained in effect ! And when you compare this pattern- to the seasonal flu charts in the past… you know what… you see the same damn thing. Suggesting that it is probably without a doubt “not” due to the effects of the vaccine- but more than likely- due to Mother Nature- setting the stage for what President Trump said back in 2020- that this virus will vanish as quickly as it came- over the summer- like it did in Australia- Singapore- the ME… and will probably raise it’s ugly head again in the Fall- I’m predicting 2nd week in October- like the seasonal flu has done for decades… and what you gonna do then Mr. Lerten- champion another shutdown- a lockdown of the state- more misery- more despair- more economic ruin ??? You all have set the state up for cyclic decline- and there’s no way out- the damage is done- so live with it !

      2. And for those of you about to argue- that the virus from China “didn’t” disappear in the summer of 2020- and instead skyrocketed out of control… say hello to your man-made crisis- your hoax- your Coup De Tat !!!

    1. I agree BGHW. I’m glad she’s “allowing” the state to partially open for small business sake. Although, she changes the way she determines lockdowns more than jonasty posts liberal gibberish, which is often. Too bad she won’t admit she follows false “science” more than not.
