Oregon reports 6 more COVID-19 related deaths, including 2 in Deschutes County; 595 new cases


 PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are six newly reported COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including two Deschutes County residents, raising the state's death toll to 2,832, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

The two Deschutes County deaths bring the county's total to 87.

OHA also reported 595 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 213,339.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Tuesday that 4,642 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 2,456 doses were administered on Monday and 2,186 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

The seven-day running average is now 4,702 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,619,930 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,769,734 first and second doses of Moderna and 176,927 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Tuesday, 2,454,380 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,281,657 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

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, 2,984,445 doses of Pfizer, 2,269,540 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon's COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated Tuesday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 155, which is seven more than Monday. There are 44 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is five more than Mondday.

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 10 COVID-19 patients as of early Tuesday, four of whom were in the ICU, with three on ventilators.

Cases and deaths

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Tuesday are in the following counties: Baker (1), Benton (5), Clackamas (35), Clatsop (4), Columbia (13), Coos (12), Crook (7), Curry (1), Deschutes (14), Douglas (14), Harney (2), Hood River (3), Jackson (63), Jefferson (4), Josephine (19), Klamath (8), Lane (42), Lincoln (6), Linn (19), Malheur (7), Marion (87), Morrow (3), Multnomah (36), Polk (32), Sherman (1), Umatilla (72), Union (6), Wallowa (1), Wasco (4), Washington (64) and Yamhill (10).   

OHA does not report the vaccination status of people in our daily update of COVID-19 related deaths. However, statewide data show that people who remain unvaccinated are at much greater risk of infection and severe illness. In June, 92% of the 7,241 COVID-19 cases and 94% of the 63 COVID-19-associated deaths occurred in unvaccinated Oregonians.

On the first Thursday of each month, OHA publishes an update on vaccine breakthrough cases identified in Oregon. The findings shared in their last report, from July 1, indicate that this number remains very small, when compared to the more than 2 million people who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination series.

Oregon's 2,827th COVID-19 death is a 64-year-old woman from Deschutes County who tested positive on April 21 and died on July 18 at St. Charles Bend. She had underlying conditions.

Oregon's 2,828th COVID-19 death is a 76-year-old man from Deschutes County who tested positive on April 5 and died on May 29 at St. Charles Bend. He had underlying conditions.

Oregon's 2,829th COVID-19 death is a 75-year-old man from Jackson County who tested positive on July 16 and died on July 18 at his residence. He had underlying conditions.

Oregon's 2,830th COVID-19 death is a 66-year-old woman from Jackson County who tested positive on July 15 and died on July 16 at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. She had underlying conditions.

Oregon's 2,831st COVID-19 death is a 53-year-old woman from Lane County who tested positive on April 29 and died on July 16 at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend. Presence of underlying conditions is being confirmed.

Oregon's 2,832nd COVID-19 death is a 67-year-old man from Lane County who tested positive on July 12 and died on July 17 at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend. He had underlying conditions.

Updated information is known for Oregon's 2,820th COVID-19 death, an 83-year-old woman from Baker County. She was erroneously reported as a 70-year-old man.

  1. I FREAKIN’ TOLD YA SOOOO ! Biden and Brown have lost all control of a plandemic they started- now ‘Merikans are suffering ! Oh the misery- as karma reminds everyone of this January 21 statement- “The new administration released a detailed national COVID response plan Thursday”… and this is it ? Surge number 4 in 7 months ??? Lying Dying and Mystifying- That’s yer Amerika 2021 !

      1. These are the kinds of posts Mr Lerten is encouraging with his new system that reduces the conversation to just personal insults… Sigh !

  2. But the orange **** said LAST SUMMER that the virus would die from the heat and go away? If the idiots who refuse to get the vaccine are the ones getting it then its total Karma. Now it’s time to cue “Wish” and his moron cult to post more lies and garbage to refute facts. Time for the tools to pack up and move

      1. Please provide a link proving your allegation. And if you don’t To others: Please don’t believe this person! Unless he provides legitimate authoritative proof that the vaccine is causing those deaths. Most reputable reporting we’ve seen has been very careful not to draw conclusions experts in positions of responsibility have not said.

            1. But of course. You kept asking for a link. I provided one. It really doesn’t matter what source I use, and there are plenty of others.
              It doesn’t fit your narrative so it must be disproved.

              1. And such links need the context I provided. Others can decide who they believe and what they think is disinformation/misinformation. It’s not what officials at the federal, state and local level have said.

                1. I told you they don’t believe facts. Cult members support their Cheeto Jesus.

              2. So, according this this data, if I go grocery shopping and die two weeks later, it was the grocery shopping that killed me. A lot of people die after doing something, but there isn’t a correlation what they did and the fact they died. Same with your link. People died after getting the vaccine doesn’t mean that had anything to do with the fact they died. Your link doesn’t provide context, it just wants to say vaccines are not good.

                1. Poor analogy ! If you “never” go shopping for 68 years- then you do and die- there’s a pretty good chance something within that shopping event killed you. Mugger-virus-bacteria-auto accident !

        1. Correction then Mr. Wordsmith… 7000 deaths “associated” with the vaccines- in a mere 8 month period- with no long term data to justify FDA approval !

                1. You didn’t bother to even look at the lawsuit . . . What are you going to say if it actually results in an injunction? I read the whole thing and at least it was an interesting read.

                2. I don’t have time to read everything folks want me to read. I looked up what’s being said about the source instead. Anyone can sue anyone over anything. If a judge rules, that’s different. (It’s like, anyone can be NOMINATED for a Nobel Prize…)

                3. And one of the exhibits is the sworn declaration of the whistleblower . . . who could face jail time for lying . . .

        2. Oh looky at the lawsuit just filed. In answer to you request for “proof”, you can start at section II “Summary of Proof” on page 3 or jump right to section IID “Whistleblower Testimony: 45,000 Deaths Caused by the Vaccine”, starting on page 41.

  3. So since the z is so on the righteous side that dirty Harry wheeler in Portland and brown are, any argument we need factual proof. Saw over the weekend, not the singer but Saturday and Sunday, 80 people in Louisiana have died from the vaccine.

        1. That does NOT say the people died FROM vaccinations. Those are “breakthrough” cases that occurred after vaccinations, as we and everyone else has reported (along with how rare it has been). HUGE difference to say the vaccine caused their deaths.

    1. Watch it.. Barney will find something very small to counter any link of proof you may provide.
      The sky is mostly blue, but I bet he can find a counter link that says otherwise. As most on this website can do

  4. Faux, Newsmax turning pro-vaccine. Lol. What are the MAGA Clowns gonna do? Lied to by their heros. Guess what rumpkins, theres more: Biden won, Trumpie lost. Better find a new propaganda channel.

    1. Guess what Bidie…. they never were anti-vaccine. Even Hannity has been saying the same thing for MONTHS. Talk to your doctor, have an educated conversation as to what is right for you.
      I did my research, talked with my doctor, talked with other people. I knew the risks. I knew the benefits. I made an educated decision to get the vaccine. Would I do it again? Probably not, just to **** you off.

      1. Fox’s partisan approach to the pandemic was clear as far back as March 2020. As the pandemic was raising alarm bells, Sean Hannity irresponsibly told his Fox news audience that the virus was just the Democrats’ way “to bludgeon President Trump.” Hannity added, that the same people who screamed “Russia, Russia. Ukraine, Ukraine. And impeach, impeach,” are now crying, “corona, corona.”

        1. Hahaha. Thats classic.
          It is true, democrats were saying Russia Russia Russia,, impeach impeach… even before he was inaugurated.
          And at the start, nobody took corona that serious… except… Operation Warp Speed.

      2. “Tucker Carlson Is Leading the Anti-Vax Right
        The Fox News host has made skepticism about the Covid-19 vaccine part of his larger narrative about cancel culture and elites.” TNR

        “Fox News Is Moving From ‘Just Asking Questions’ to Full-On Anti-Vax Crapola” Esquire

        1. You know what Martha, I don’t really care. Whether you are anti-vac or not is a personal choice. A personal freedom to do what you think is right for your body. Nobody should tell you what to do and nobody should shame you for doing what you do. Fox has just as much right reporting its “news” as CNN does. And since its all OP_ED its not news at all. Its all made up numbers and news to support whatever narrative you believe.

          The dems have made it all a political game, mask mandate, shutdowns, destroy the world economy to make room for the new world order kind of thing. I aint buying any of the BS the left seems to want to make issue of.

          1. We know you don’t care about posting lies or you wouldn’t do it. Its one thing when people aren’t being hurt but a lot of people are dying because they believe the crap that FOX and Tucker and then you and Wishy, etc. push out.

            “I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, in an emotional Facebook post Sunday. “One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.”AL.Com 7/21

  5. I like how the assumption is that everyone decides whether or not to get a vaccine by watching opinion programs on TV, whether it’s CNN or Fox. I hope that most Americans are smarter than that, but am not confident.

    1. Watch Tucker tonight, read it here tomorrow. 😊
      It is interesting that conservative news outlets have done a 180 in the last few days. Im guessing their lawyers told them they might have some liability. Suddenly, Conservatives Care About Vaccines
      “A number of leaders on the right suddenly urged their audiences to get vaccinated in the past day. Why now?”
