Oregon reports 10 more COVID-19 related deaths, including Crook County’s 24th, 370 new cases

(Update: Details of deaths released)

Deschutes County spike in case count, to 85, due to delay in some lab reports in recent weeks

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 10 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,726, the Oregon Health Authority reported Thursday.

OHA also reported 370 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Thursday, bringing the state total to 204,291.

Interim update to release time of this daily news release

To align with the daily Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) update of the numbers of people in Oregon ages 18 and older who have received at least one dose of their COVID-19 vaccine, OHA will be releasing this daily news release later in the day, beginning today.

The CDC posts the number of people in Oregon ages 18 and up who have received at least a first dose daily, generally by 5 p.m. Eastern time.

OHA then pulls the data from the CDC site at 3 p.m. Pacific time daily and subtracts the number of people ages 18 and older who have had at least one dose from Oregon’s target of 2,345,823 (70% of those 18 and over). This calculation shows how many people ages 18 and older still need to be vaccinated to achieve Oregon’s goal of 70%.

OHA will update the website banner to reflect these numbers by 5 p.m. Pacific time daily.

Note: If the CDC has not updated its website by 3 p.m. Pacific time, when OHA pulls the data, OHA communications will add a note in this daily media release and on the dashboard on the Governor’s website stating that CDC’s website has not been updated and OHA will update the banner and dashboard at 9 a.m. Pacific time the next day.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Thursday that 27,113 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 11,182 doses were administered on Wednesday and 15,931 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Wednesday.

The 7-day running average is now 15,761 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 2,337,634 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,659,139 first and second doses of Moderna and 153,424 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Thursday, 1,991,717 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,303,485 people who have had at least one dose. The number of adult Oregonians needing vaccinations to reach the 70% threshold is 93,234.

Note: OHA is working to determine why CDC's COVID-19 vaccination update Thursday indicates minimal change. We will have a more complete update Friday.

A daily countdown can be found on the OHA website

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, 2,861,055 doses of Pfizer, 2,173,680 doses of Moderna and 299,000 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 Thursday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 173, which is nine more than Wednesday. There are 41 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is five more than Wednesday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 1,328, which is a 22.3% 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 219.

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 22 COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Thursday, with four in the ICU, all on ventilators.

One Community Health: collaboration is key

On Friday, One Community Health will be administering Pfizer vaccines in The Dalles while offering free food and live music to all who attend the event. Preventative health manager

Gladys Rivera readily admits that Friday’s event is more of a celebration than a formal clinic, because Wasco County has almost reached a 65% percent vaccination rate. 

Rivera attributes the clinic’s vaccination success to the organization’s great partnership with OHA, as well as with other community partners, including growers, employers and local businesses.  

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) deployed three mobile vaccination units throughout Oregon’s rural communities, which have successfully vaccinated more than 2,500 people across the state.  

“Collaboration is really the key to make all of this happen,” emphasized Rivera. “It’s relying on all those partners and really sharing the workload.”

Note: Due to a delay in laboratory reporting, OHA received 767 electronic laboratory reports (ELRs) on Wednesday 2021 for Deschutes County. The reports are from April 17, 2021 to June 9, 2021. As a result, case counts, ELR totals and percent positivity is higher in Deschutes County for Wednesday than anticipated.

Morgan Emerson, public information officer with Deschutes County Health Services, said the delay in those case reports was due to an error identified with a lab's reporting.

  1. Over the past two days we’ve seen a resurgence of this pesky little bug- some of the highest death numbers since February and a return to nearly 400 new cases… this is all despite four million vaccine doses- ongoing shutdowns-lockdowns-dumbdowns… so what’s really driving this virus from Wuhan China- it’s obvious- nothing Kate Brown has done has had any effect- none- zero- nada ! Like I said- hospitals are not about to give up their golden goose- this remains a money run at the expense of our overall society… Nice Work Libs- you created this problem- now you can’t fix it !

    1. I would guess it’s primarily anti-vaxers getting covid at this point. Hardly Governor Browns fault that MAGA blowhards such as yourself spew nonsense about flu and ineffectiveness of masks and ‘experimental’ vaccines.

      1. How do you know it wasn’t a single “Biden Bumbling Breakthrough” case- spread throughout the state during Memorial Day weekend- which is really beside the point- the fact remains- the vaccine has been out there for more than six months- the State’s Wuhan Virus numbers haven’t dramatically declined one bit- more than 25,000 active cases right now… what is it about Biden Blowhards that had the nation in a panic over a mere 2,000 cases back in June of 2020- but have them all Bubbly-Bubbly ready to drop their masks with 10x’s more virus in the air ??? Damn- you all thought Fauci was an idiot- just spend a minute or two with a beta klown like kuya ! Personally- I could care less- won’t get the vaccine- have no prob with my mask- even if I did have the Vac… there are too many variables out there to play Putin Roulette with !

          1. “Where are you getting your 25,000 active cases number?”… You mean you are not seeing that data spoon fed to you here at Z21 ? Why not ?? My advice- try John Hopkins- Worldometer- both have the charts under “Currently Infected” ! Some of you need to do better research- before spouting conspiracy theories and blatant ignorance !

            1. I see. So here’s a chart that blows a hole in your statement “the State’s Wuhan Virus numbers haven’t dramatically declined one bit- more than 25,000 active cases right now…”

              https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/oregon/

              Not only does it show a dramatic decline from 55,000 cases at the peak, but it also shows *fewer* than 25,000 active cases the day you posted there were more than 25,000 cases.

              I’m pleased you’re using legitimate data sources, but your analysis could use some work.

              Here’s another good source for visualizations: https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus

              And you can also just Google things like “deschutes covid” and it’ll show graphs. To make yourself feel better, you can even Google “deschutes wuhan virus” and it’ll show you the same thing.

      2. They now have stats on deaths and hospital stays for vaccinated and non vaccinated. I heard them for May. Yikes, both stats pretty clear. Of the patients treated, not how many days total these patients were in the hospital, it was close to 300 people and only 2 were unvaccinated. Of those that died over 90% were unvaccinated. I can’t remember exact numbers but those are close.

    2. huh? you are just a complete idiot! pump out inane lies and drivel and then finish with an absolute garbage sentence of blame! boy your mom must be really sad at how you turned out!

    1. But I really should elaborate to say that this should absolutely be investigated. mRNA vaccines have pretty spectacular potential and in this first widespread distribution, we’re going to learn a lot.

  2. So any word on popeye’s coming to central oregon Barney? heard something last year and still is odd that almost 2 months later jack in the box still is closed, i dont miss their cuisine but they were never consistent with their hours.

  3. How about reporting about the young teen boys having heart problems after a vaccine shot? I know Joe is busy bribing people so they can get free beer on the 4th of July but maybe you guys can report what your democratic leaders are doing to people and this country. While you are at it, talk about Hunter Biden’s N-Word emails & Facui emails. https://www.westernjournal.com/cdc-unexpectedly-high-number-young-adults-suffering-heart-problems-2nd-covid-shot/?utm_source=telegram&utm_medium=westernjournalism&utm_campaign=telegramfeed&utm_content=2021-06-10

  4. I was talking about Bend 21 News. Fake MSM had to bring it out because they knew it was coming out. I can’t imagine what else is on that racist’s Hunter’s emails. However, the Fake MSM keeps it barely visible, they want to focus now on UFO’s because Obama told them to. Lol! Come on audits! Good vs Evil.
