COVID-19 hospitalizations jump 86 in a day; St. Charles Bend nears record patient cases

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 15 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,964, along with 2,941 cases and a record 838 hospitalizations the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday. 

OHA reported 2,941 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 245,758. The 2,941 cases reported today includes new cases that were reported to some counties over the weekend.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Tuesday that 6,439 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 2,144 were initial doses and 1,056 were second doses administered on Monday. The remaining 3,075 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

Oregon has now administered 2,727,893 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,812,233 first and second doses of Moderna and 190,254 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Tuesday, 2,557,489 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,354,372 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 lags in providers reporting updated information. 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.

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 838, which is 86 more than Monday. There are 222 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 16 more than Monday. 

As of Tuesday morning, there were 66 available adult ICU beds out of 649 total (10% availability) and 275 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,142 (6.6% availability). 

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 56 COVID-19 patients as of early Tuesday, nine of whom were in the ICU, with eight on ventilators. The hospital is approaching its record of 60 COVID-19 patients, set late last year.

  1. Wait until St. Charles and Kate Brown demand healthcare workers to be vaxxed or weekly test by Sept 30. Then you will see a real healthcare crisis like you’ve never seen before. You ain’t seen nothing yet. Nurses can be a travel nurse and care for patients where they are appreciated despite their medical decisions. Oh yeah and make $150/hour. Kate Brown and St. Chuck’s you better not complain when the **** hits the fan.

    1. Yeah not to mention going into flu season. Everyone that got shot up will have spike protein production that will put the hospitals under water with no staff because they were all fired. Smart thinking Kate 😆👍

      1. What does this even mean? How long do you think the spike protein mRNA will last after vaccination? There are research publications on this. Do you think spike protein is causing the uptick in hospitalizations? No, 98% of hospitalized are unvaccinated people. 100% of deaths are unvaccinated people…

  2. If your right leaning on here lot of people you’d lost credibility with. Point out that the jump on cases here had to come from the fair and moderator says no such thing unless you have concrete facts to back the outlandish claims up.🦍

  3. And there ya go… after more than two and a half months without a single day of double digit daily deaths- the state manages to infect a record number of Oregonians to the point that 15 (not a single child) all with underlying conditions- are recorded as having died. Clearly kalamity Kate has done nothing effective to control this virus- “nothing” ! So what is her purpose anyway- just a cheerleader for a vax that now doesn’t work ? Whatta skam- as if the hoax couldn’t get any worse.

  4. Ah Wishy, you should be proud that you have your own trolls who want to emulate your stupidity like Louie and others that need and crave attention like you. Hugs
