Oregon reports 2 more COVID-19 related deaths, 613 new cases


(Update: St. Charles reports 15 COVID-19 patients, highest count in nearly a month)

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are two new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,836, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday. 

OHA also reported 613 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 214,869.

Vaccinations in Oregon

Today, OHA reported that 5,968 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 3,054 doses were administered on July 22 and 2,914 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on July 22.

The seven-day running average is now 4,496 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,631,883 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,774,604 first and second doses of Moderna and 178,213 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of today, 2,463,839 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,291,225 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, 3,004,695 doses of Pfizer, 2,284,320 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 today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 178, which is nine more than yesterday. There are 45 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six more than yesterday.

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 reported 15 COVID-19 patients as of early Friday, four of whom were in the ICU, all four on ventilators. Officials said the total patient count is the highest since June 26, nearly a month ago.

Cases and deaths

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Friday are in the following counties: Baker (1), Benton (10), Clackamas (35), Clatsop (5), Columbia (9), Coos (7), Crook (2), Deschutes (23), Douglas (28), Harney (3), Hood River (1), Jackson (58), Jefferson (9), Josephine (25), Klamath (15), Lane (63), Lincoln (6), Linn (43), Malheur (1), Marion (62), Morrow (5), Multnomah (71), Polk (5), Sherman (1), Tillamook (2), Umatilla (34), Union (11), Wasco (4), Washington (58) and Yamhill (16).   

Note: Due to delayed reporting, a large amount of approximately 6,000 negative electronic laboratory reports (ELRs) from June 1 to July 21 were received on July 22. Total ELRs are higher than anticipated and percent positivity is lower than anticipated for July 22. 

Oregon’s 2,835th COVID-19 death is a 66-year-old man from Yamhill County who tested positive on July 9 and died on July 21 at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center. He had underlying conditions. 

Oregon’s 2,836th COVID-19 death is a 46-year-old woman from Tillamook County who tested positive on July 7 and died on July 9 at her residence. She had underlying conditions. 

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 our last report, from July 1, indicate that this number remains very small when compared to the more than 2.2 million people who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination series.

  1. 70%+ vaccinated and rising case counts again . . . How many are “break through” cases? Time for another shot of “experimental”/for emergency use only/non-FDA approved vaccine that is losing its effectiveness in combating the virus. Meanwhile, they’re denying the true number of people dying from the vaccine.

      1. About the same level of proof that you provided for 8 months when you falsely attributed millions of deaths world-wide as “Due to” the Corona virus- instead of the now widely accepted “related to” ! The hypocrisy from you Barney is amazing- especially when many of us more conservative thinkers accurately informed you that these deaths- from day one- have been because of underlying conditions. We now see that only 3% of fatalities lived up to your hype and misinformation !

        1. We wrote no hype or misinformation. We accurately quoted Oregon’s health officials, who of course are under constant attack for presenting their factson an evolving situation, as most folks understand.

          1. You quoted politically motivated hacks ! Real science eventually set you straight- lord knows you didn’t listen to me (archives don’t lie) and you’ve yet to provide an explanation or apology… but you want to be “respected” in the community ? Not with all that baggage around your waist !

            1. Your labels, not mine. As usual. We quoted the same official sources as every single responsible media outlet in the state — including our local competitors. Just one of the many, many facts you ignore.
              You’re right, I don’t “listen” to you. I spend as little time as possible reading your… stuff. You’ve never given me a reason to.

              1. Kate Brown is not worthy of “quoting”- yet you did it time and time again. She has single handidly- with your willingness to go along- destroyed the state economy- the society- and the future of hundreds of thousands of young Oregonians who have been scarred by this BS… I sleep well at night B- I don’t need any self help group to make me feel better about how I’ve handled this horse-hockey… when yer not auto-removing my posts… you read my “stuff”- you don’t have to agree with it- but your level of intolerance is shameful. I’ll argue with you all day- but I won’t take my ball walk off the court- turn out the lights and lock the gate behind me ! Take that to your next “Angry Angel on My Shoulder” meeting !

                1. The Olympics are on.
                  They are inspiring about the best of us.
                  I’ll spend as much time on that, and as little on your typical falsehoods as possible, and will stop responding to you because you have no decency or respect.
                  As usual, you prove the hate in your mind with every post. Nothing else.
                  Have a good night.

                2. BGHW. As far as I can tell, you spend a good part of every day bullying Barney, a guy who most of us can see takes a lot of pride in doing his job well. He reads your “stuff” (I could think of a few other choice words for it) because he has to, and he’s pretty graceful about putting up with it most of the time. But you should know this. While, for unknown reasons, you’ve made Barney your nemesis, to Barney you’re clearly not a nemesis but a mild irritant. You’re like a mosquito: people try to ignore you, but occasionally even the best of us can’t resist swatting and scratching.

                  BGHW, is this really what you want to do with your life? Do you want your headstone to say “Here lies BGHW, who spent untold hours hounding a nice guy who works at a TV station, and who was really, really mean to people who didn’t share his questionable logic”?

                  Do you have loved ones, BGHW? Maybe it’s time to log off and spend some time with them.

    1. You guys alway refer to “they.” Who in the midst of your disinformation is “they” suppose to be? I mean “they” must be pretty important since “they” have influenced the whole world in regards to the development of this virus. So who the heck is your “they?”

    2. Also, I’ve read fully vaccinated breakthrough cases aren’t being required to report by healthcare systems unless they wicked sick. Strange. 10-15 covid patients at the hospital? Guess what that’s how it will be for a long long time. Just like influenza. It’s a respiratory virus. Not sure why these experts treat covid differently. They say a paper mask protects you, when that have studied a long time and this is proven false. PCR testing to diagnose? Even without symptoms?? WTF? Then base lockdowns on those flimsily numbers. Folks, covid is real. But there is a agenda. Also Biden said during his stupid town hall you WON’T get covid if fully vaccinated. Imagine if trump said that? Why didn’t he get flagged on social media? Or do you Beta brains believe him? Wear a cloth mask and put up plexiglass. That should help.

  2. Actually, with all due respect, I know of 2 people locally who have died from the Covid vaccination. Both deaths were confirmed by their respective doctors. Another woman, whom I’ve known for 14 years, was cancer free for 7 years until she got the Covid vaccination. Two weeks later, her cancer was back. I just spoke with her again yesterday and her doctor has confirmed that the Covid vax is responsible.

      1. I think you’ve had plenty of time to talk to doctors- ask basic questions- but simply haven’t done it… Ex. When, Why, and how did the OHA come to the conclusion that “deaths due to” was inappropriate ? That was a huge shift away from the virus- yet many of your liberal readers refuse to accept this definition… we see it everyday ! I’ll say it again- it aint Ebola !

        1. We’ve talked to doctors, you just don’t like their answers. They’re not on trial, I’m not, and you… well. Way back when, I told you OHA’s answer. You just didn’t buy it, as you don’t buy anything you don’t want to. Your mind is made up and won’t be swayed by the facts, which do evolve, like most people.

          1. Your OHA answer was along the lines of “because they decided to” ! I’ve never heard of any other explanation- link please !

    1. Absolutely need the name of this doctor. Please send Barney his info so we can get this story from this medical professional. We want proof, not your hearsay. Give us the Doctor’s name!!

  3. Barney, you ask for solid facts or stories. How can we when the marxist in chief, along with his big tech buddies won’t allow anything other than Dr. Fauci approved comments. You and all who are buying this have scales on your eyes. ( google that last phrase and lean something)

    1. Barney wants to argue that all the horrendous mistakes for the past year were due to a lack of knowledge- and over the months- medical professionals have somehow become more enlightened. I call BS ! We knew early on that the virus first appeared in the Wuhan lab in late November of 2019- and by March of 2020- hadn’t killed a single child in either the US or China- Yet the first thing Kalamity Kate shut down- was our schools ! Why ? To force parents out of the workforce and back home to care for them… this single deed- used by dictators throughout history to control the masses- was finally used against the American people and initiated by three Demokrat Governors on the west coast- the rest is history. Barney’s hindsight is stilted at best- yet an extremely dangerous precedence. America will not recover from this gracefully- and you can thank the enablers like BL out there for whats to come.

  4. Bghw we know the Olympics will be used as protest fodder for athletes who believes America is evil and they will be heralded as courageous and heroic in liberals eyes. We won’t change their minds at the Z 🐝 cause they would say it’s not physically possible the vax caused her cancer to come by and her doctor is wrong. That theres no way our leaders would hurt Americans.🤨

  5. 5.5 million vaccines- 215,000 cases of natural immunity- children and young people almost completely un-affected- yet here we are in Kovid Kate’s Oregon with a surging case load hitting 613 in a single day ! Safe to say- these vaccines are having little impact- it’s going to be herd immunity by those of us who are healthy and active to pull the state and the country through. Data don’t lie !

    1. Data don’t lie……In June, 92% of the 7,241 COVID-19 cases and 94% of the 63 COVID-19-associated deaths occurred in unvaccinated Oregonians. (OHA) Please let “notorious” BGHW save our state and country by spending hours on forums. Pretty please.

  6. The vaccines don’t work. No sense in taking it if not FDA approved. I predict that in the years to come, more people will have died from the side effects of these faux vaccines. I’m immune to covid thank God!

      1. My guess is that he already had COVID, just like tens of millions of other Americans having the vaccine jammed down their throats. Vaccines are a personal choice depending on your health situation and assessment of risk, which in the case of covid is based on your age and any existing co-morbidities.
