'Even more heartbreaking, because many of these deaths are preventable' with vaccine, OHA director says

 PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 20 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, two from Central Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 4,002, the Oregon Health Authority reported Monday.

OHA also reported 2,895 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Monday, bringing the state's total to 343,993.

COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon top 4,000 over the weekend

“Today, Oregon has now recorded more than 4,000 deaths,” said Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen. “That’s two short months since we last paused to mark the painful milestone of 3,000 COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon. Our condolences go out to everyone who has lost a loved one, a family member, a friend or a neighbor.

“These two milestones tell the story of how swiftly and severely the Delta variant has moved through our communities," Allen said.

“This is even more heartbreaking, because many of these deaths are preventable. COVID-19 vaccines are widely available throughout Oregon, and the vaccines are our best protection against serious illness and death from this virus. My message to Oregonians today is simple: The Delta variant has changed everything. Please, get vaccinated as soon as you can.”

  1. I do appreciate these reports by KTVZ. With over 700,000 people dead from a preventable disease this continues to be the biggest story of the day. If you don’t believe the numbers please refrain from commenting, I know your opinions.

  2. Oregon’s 2000th death was recorded February 4-5 2021… Not in January as the OHA chart suggests. More Oregonians have died with issues related to the CV19 under Biden in 9 months- than in 11 months under President Trump- where’s the outrage ?

  3. Why is Kovid Kate no longer blowing her “flatten the curve” bull horn ? Oregon has suffered through three obvious “bell curve” surges and declines just this year… the biggest surge (this summer) following the highest number of vaccines provided in the state (last spring) this year… So what is the reason behind the current downward trend in cases… it can’t be related to vaccines- they have hardly budged upward in numbers at all…. Hmmmm- I wonder !
