Deschutes County reports 15 new cases, Jefferson County 8, Crook County none

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are two new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,668, the Oregon Health Authority reported Sunday, along with 257 new cases, the lowest daily case count in nearly two months.

Oregon Health Authority reported 257 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Sunday, bringing the state total to 201,260. That was the lowest daily number of cases since 248 cases were reported on April 5.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Sunday that 17,982 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 8,104 doses were administered on Saturday and 9,878 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Saturday.

The seven-day running average is now 25,929 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 2,203,469 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,599,347 first and second doses of Moderna and 142,531 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Sunday, 1,843,416 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,237,342 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).

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

OHA's dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated Sunday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 250, which is seven fewer than Saturday. There are 60 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is four more than Saturday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 1,836, which is a 11.3% 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 274.

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. Yeah like Texas and Florida that’s been wide open? Omg. Amazing. Please link also the thousands of ill effects to the experimental drug with deaths. We will wait. Beta.

    2. Yeah like Texas and Florida that’s been wide open? Omg. Amazing. Please link also the thousands of ill effects to the experimental drug with deaths. We will wait. Beta. Just sone good ol’ heart inflammation that may cause hospitalization, no big deal right Keyser??? Hahaha. My you have such a big heart in the name of science experiments. https://www.forbes.com/sites/leahcampbell/2021/05/26/heres-what-we-know-about-young-people-developing-myocarditis-after-covid-19-vaccine/?sh=6938430d27bb

      1. From your link. “According to the CDCs report, current numbers seem in line with the incidence rate that occurs in the general adolescent population—meaning there is no reason to assume the vaccine is causing this inflammation.”

  1. You know how you got your vaccine without paying a dime? You didn’t spend hours on the phone with your insurance company. You weren’t reduced to a profit margin.

    That’s how all health care could be.

    1. I agree meds should not cost a arm and leg and insurance companies need to be put in check. But when you mention the vaccine, they aren’t charging because it is not fda approved. Insurance companies can’t charge fir a experimental drug. Go ahead get 20 doses, the fda will love you. You are a lab rat. We appreciate you!!! You are truly the clinical study. But don’t compare a experimental non fda approved medication to insulin because you are dumb if you do. Probably a democrat. And I know you are a weak BETA MALE!!!

        1. 1) It’s not the fountain of youth- it has no ability to reverse old age- the vast majority of deaths are geriatric individuals who have come to the end of their life span. 2) It’s not a magical elixir with the ability to reverse diabetes, cancers, heart disease, or poor lifestyle choices found so common in the American culture… Burgers and sodas are more deadly than this lab created virus from China.

  2. The garbage you let slide is pathetic Barney. You delete my posts that say “Portland sucks” and you let these mental patients spew garbage and call people names like the grade schoolers they are. You are the worst moderator.

    1. Clearly that’s not why I deleted whatever comment you are referring to. It must have been something else.
      Feel free to go to Reddit or somewhere that allows comments and where the moderation is more to your liking. Most folks know I do the best I can, while under constant unfair attack by a few trolls, and I get great sympathy for it. Have found I have many friends who wouldn’t dare comment here, for obvious reasons.

      1. I’m convinced that those “few trolls” constantly attacking you are actually one guy posting under multiple names. Not sure what you ever did to him. Some people need to get a life.

      2. Why do you have to try to convince everyone that you have friends. No one asked. Internet friends aren’t real friends. Why can’t you answer the question? Why do you allow troll comments from the handful of trolls that we have. Hateful, untrue, utterly useless and often way off topic. The comment section is a reflection of the moderator and it sucks here because you let it suck.

        1. Sounds like you’re doing just what you accuse others of. You, like all others, could make it a better place online if you wanted to. And I’m talking many kind face to face friends, in real life. No, it reflects a company policy of erring on the side of free speech. Many of the regulars would have most comments deleted or be banned if we followed the “don’t allow hateful or off-topic comments” policy you seek.
