BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 14 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including four recent deaths of Crook County residents at St. Charles Bend, raising the state’s death toll to 4,372, Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

OHA also reported 1,420 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 365,053.

Forecasting model projects slowing decline in hospitalizations and impact of pediatric vaccinations

Starting Friday, OHA will be linking to the Oregon Health & Science University COVID Forecast Model. The OHSU forecasting document employs a long-used epidemiological model to predict the number of persons who are susceptible to being infected, who are actively infected or who have recovered at any previous time.

The current report, published Thursday, uses data provided by OHA and others that project how fast the virus may spread in the population and provides projections on possible outcomes, including infection rates and impacts on hospital capacity.

The latest report predicts a slowing in the decline of hospitalizations due to fatigue over the public health protocols that are effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19. According to the OHSU report, this is not expected to generate a surge, although that risk remains.

The newest report also projects that the anticipated approval by federal agencies and the Western States Scientific Safety Workgroup of pediatric vaccine for children ages 5-11 would help decrease COVID-19 transmission.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 513, which is five fewer than Thursday. There are 133 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 10 more than Thursday.

There are 59 available adult ICU beds out of 700 total (8% availability) and 308 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,115 (7% availability).

St. Charles Bend reported 64 COVID-19 patients early Friday, seven of whom were in the ICU, with five on ventilators. Six of the seven ICU patients were not fully vaccinated and 47 of the 64 patients were not fully vaccinated, the hospital reported.

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.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.
