Oregon reports 75 more COVID-19 related deaths, 5 from C.O.; 1,033 new cases

Oregon Health Authority

Weekly OHA report shows drop in cases, rise in deaths, hospitalizations

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 75 newly reported COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including five from Central Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 4,730, Oregon Health Authority reported Wednesday.

Four of of the newly reported deaths were from Deschutes County and one from Jefferson County. Several were 51 or 52 years old.

OHA also reported 1,033 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 376,372.

Reminder: State health officials to add more than 500 COVID-19 deaths due to technical error

Over the coming weeks, OHA will report approximately 550 deaths among people who died with COVID-19, but whose deaths only became recently known to state epidemiologists due to a technical computer error. 

This will result in higher death totals as the backlog is resolved.

More details can be found here.

Note: OHA will be closed Thursday, Nov. 11, so employees may commemorate Veterans Day with family and friends. For this reason, there will be no Daily Media Release, Oregon Coronavirus Update or other OHA reports and communications tomorrow. OHA will be open regular hours on Friday.

There will also be no OHA e-newsletters, reports or other communications on Thursday, Nov. 25 (Thanksgiving Day) and Friday, Nov. 26.

Thank you for understanding.

COVID-19 weekly cases decline, deaths and hospitalizations rise

OHA’s COVID-19 Weekly Report, released Wednesday, shows a decrease in daily cases and increases in hospitalizations and deaths.

OHA reported 6,643 new cases of COVID-19 during the week of Monday, Nov. 1, through Sunday, Nov. 7. That represents a 16% decrease from the previous week and the fewest since the last week of July.

The overall incidence of reported COVID-19 cases in Oregon varied by county vaccination rate, but continues to be lower in counties with higher vaccination rates and the lowest in the five counties where the vaccination rates were more than 70%.

There were 378 new COVID-19 hospitalizations, up from 313 last week.

There were 243 reported COVID-19-related deaths, up from 82 reported the previous week. This increase is a result of ongoing data reconciliation of COVID-19-related deaths that primarily occurred from May to August 2021, as reported last month.

There were 135,539 tests for COVID-19 for the week of Oct. 31 through Nov. 6. The percentage of positive tests was 6.4%, down from 7.4% the previous week.

Wednesday’s COVID-19 Weekly Outbreak Report shows 76 active COVID-19 outbreaks in senior living communities and congregate living settings, with three or more confirmed cases and one or more COVID-19 related deaths.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 509, which is one fewer than Tuesday. There are 125 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two fewer than Tuesday.

There are 56 available adult ICU beds out of 675 total (8% availability) and 281 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,096 (7% availability).

Adult non-ICU beds available281(7%)51(3%)6(1%)72(12%)34(8%)10(20%)59(14%)49(41%)

St. Charles Bend reported 53 COVID-19 patients as of early Wednesday, 10 of whom were in the ICU, with nine on ventilators. Nine of the 10 ICU patients were not fully vaccinated, the hospital said, and 39 of the 53 total patients were not fully vaccinated.

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. 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.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Wednesday that 20,547 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Tuesday. Of that total, 2,692 were initial doses, 732 were second doses and 7,427 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 9,652 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Tuesday.

The seven-day running average is now 15,742 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 3,364,761 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 8,339 doses of Pfizer Pediatric, 2,092,443 doses of Moderna and 233,788 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Wednesday, 2,846,282 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,628,349 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

  1. Another daily reminder of how ineffective the Brown-Biden CV19 response has been. We would have never seen these numbers under President Trump- and here’s why. As the dust settles- the evidence is starting to clear- that the vaccines are “weak” ! We believe this because the record number of vaccinations in April “seemed” to lose their efficacy by August- that is 3 months of protection- and follows the general pattern of what we see in the bell curves of peaks and valleys- every 2-3 months. The reason for these “weak” vaccines ? A clear lack of long term research in which Big pharma didn’t want to be held liable for.

    1. You stated that “we never would have seen these numbers under President Trump-and here’s why.” But you do not give any reasons to support this statement. Isn’t the vaccine Trumps’ doing? Wasn’t it under his administration that the vaccine was developed? So why wouldn’t we see these numbers under Trump?

      1. Sorry- I’ve tried to explain twice now why my posts are no longer allowed to be detailed- it’s not me and the mod won’t explain why my comments have word/sentence limits on them. This explanation just keeps getting censored- no TOS violation- no personal attack- just censored.

        1. Because it’s a false allegation. You have no proof that a technical issue is anything but, so cut it out or see more comments deleted. You are even claiming delays in moderation while I do my “real job” or am sleeping early in the day are being “blocked” or some conspiracy. Again, false. Instant moderation has never happened here, and after 9,000 posted comments here you should know that. Just think of all that wasted time.

          1. It’s a true allegation ! You can go through the archives- and see where I’ve had to break up comments into 2-3 line segments- hit reply- then add 2 more lines in the next box ! Why would I do that if I’m not being targeted for “limited access” ??? I don’t know- or really care- what you believe your “real job” is- your job title says Digital Content Director- which is not “reporter- copy editor- or writer” ! My allegations hold up as factual and true- the archives don’t lie and I’ll post examples if I have to.

            1. That proves absolutely nothing as usual.
              I report, write and edit digital content, edit reporters’ stories – all that comes under the DCD title, of course.
              So you’re as wrong about me as you are about everything else.
              And you know why I can’t ban you?
              Because in WordPress comments, the only such option is to ‘delete user.’ And then I wouldn’t have 1,000s of examples (if anybody actually cared to look, rather than trust me) to prove your many unproven ‘conclusions’ and offensive personal attacks on ME, and so many others here.
              I have protected you for months now from those who would tell you that in comments.
              There is NO such thing as “limited access.” Or ‘blocking’ in WordPress Comments.

          2. If you need a conspiracy look no further than the jolly Kool aid man who’s been working with George Soros to try and implement socialism here. He’s giving the codger crucial information and helping providing funds to defund police departments. They don’t want us to know how the Kool aid man had been orchestrating the 🐜 ifa protests in Atlanta as his hatred for Georgia goes back at least 30 years.

        1. President Trump “endorsed” Ivermectin- which the FDA has recently admitted to engaging clinical studies on… Yet the US media mocked- ridiculed and bullied him endlessly over it. The video records don’t lie- CNN in particular humiliated themselves and did our nation a great disservice with their idiotic commentary.

  2. We now know that “natural immunity” lasts much longer than 3 months. But Big Pharma won’t get rich off cough medicine and advil ! So they push their “boosters”- which look like once a quarter now. The “vaccines” are truly nothing more than immuno- boosters- like Vitamin supplements. they won’t save the elderly or those with underlying conditions- it’s time we started saying it ! And yes- you can say you heard this first here- my opinions based on the data I’ve seen over the past year.

    1. Oregon is now 63% fully vaccinated. This number has increased a steady 2% per month since July. Assuming this trend continues (it won’t but for the sake of argument), it will be 18 months before everybody has been vaccinated. At that point, 29 months will have passed since vaccinations began. With best case scenario of a 6 month efficacy, those who were vaccinated early will be looking at a 4th booster by then. Of course that all relies on a 6 month efficacy, which as you say, is increasingly challenged. I’m not sure the timeline but I think vaccines will eventually be replace with antiviral therapeutics which are already proven to prevent death and serious illness far better than vaccine. And some friendly advice, stop comparing COVID vaccines to vitamin supplements. They have absolutely nothing in common.

      1. I mention vitamin supplements- because they were a key component in President Trump’s treatment- along with basic melatonin and asthma medication to open the lungs. Certainly not in the same category as a vaccine- but if Americans addressed the nations real pandemic- underlying conditions- we wouldn’t be leading the world in every negative category related to this “mild” virus.

        1. Agreed. Apart from old age, the risk of death from COVID-19 closely aligns with underlying conditions resulting from obesity. This grand opportunity to encourage healthy lifestyle choices has instead become a promotion of big pharma. People are all worried about corona disease when they are twice as likely to die from heart disease. I wonder how many people stopped at McDonalds on their way to get a shot.

  3. I bet the hospital is wishing they had help to care for all these patients after they got rid of us. Barney, can you do a story with st Charles and ask how many travel nurses, cna’s, and phlebotomists they currently have and what their plan is to permanently hire the hundreds of missing staff? They have dug themselves into a hole and there is no way out.

  4. You really should reconsider putting the daily mortality number in headlines until this back log is cleared. It’s horribly misleading for people who just scan headlines to get their news – which, unfortunately, is the vast majority of news consumers.

    1. We will continue to post the daily OHA news releases for the foreseeable future. Despite the info being misunderstood or even twisted by some trolls, it’s vital to get the official info out there, targeted as it may be. It should be very easy by looking at the details (dates of death) to tell which are being cleared from the backlog, even on days when they don’t put an advisory in that day’s report.

      1. “It should be very easy by looking at the details” So you want the reader to qualify YOUR headline by scanning 225 lines of text and count how many of 75 listed deaths are recent or not? I’m just gonna stop talking now.

        1. OHA is not breaking out the missed-earlier deaths, but adding some every day. Your issue is with them, not us. Our headline cannot break it down because THEY aren’t breaking it down, and it’d probably make it way too long anyway.
          As far as I know, no other media outlet in the state is doing what you suggest, for reasons I hope are logical and understandable to others.
          If someone wants to know, the information is there.
          Have a nice night.

    2. You will find this to be a bit of a prickly topic with “you know who”- I agree with your observation- dragging out the release appears sneaky and dishonest. Oregon’s “mortality” numbers are much higher than what the state is posting- and that is deceptive- no matter what Kate’s biggest supporter says- it is a blatant lie and an easy fix- which makes the whole situation even more pathetic.

      1. I am deleting more of your offensive personal attacks on me, based on false claims. If you don’t like it, go somewhere else to spout whatever you wish. Blame OHA if you wish for not breaking things out day by day. The dates make it quite obvious. We’re not going to do that, no media in Oregon is.

        1. Name the false claim… this is a fact… undeniable… “Oregon’s “mortality” numbers are much higher than what the state is posting” !

            1. Didn’t the OHA just say they had 550 confirmed additional deaths to add to the tally ? And haven’t you argued extensively that those will be rolled out little by little- as the OHA has also said ?? Then how is that not proof that the state of Oregon has more deaths- that they know about- than they have reported ??? You need to simmer down- take a walk- you are now just fuming to the point you make no sense.

              1. You are not making the same argument as previous comments, so YOU simmer down.
                Yes, they have not reported all 550 of the delayed cases. I am consistent while you jump all over the place as usual.
                Please go do something else. I have real work to do. Or there will be more deleted comments because you continually attack me. You get your jollies out of making me respond. It feeds your ego or something.
                So I will try to either not respond or delete your offensive attacks.

  5. I’m only talking about your heads, and I’m willing to bet most Oregonians are clueless about the backlog because they likely don’t read these articles. It’s misleading if added to a headline without any context. Or purposeful clickbait to drive engagement metrics. I’m betting the latter, as you know what you’re doing here and your argument not actually addressing my comment backs that.

    1. Headlines can only be so long, and we on Mondays note the lack of weekend reports by saying xx deaths over the weekend. We do what we can, and have not seen others media outlets, just about all of whom report the same data, trying to qualify things. We do what we can.

    1. From the link “[Massachusetts] In the last week, 4,608 new breakthrough cases — infections in people who have been vaccinated — have been reported. That’s up 44% from 3,192 the previous week and marks the second straight week of increased breakthrough cases.” What the article doesn’t say is even more concerning. The total cases for the same state over the same period was 9,338. That means more than 50% of cases are occuring in the vaccinated population (which currently stands at 69.5%). “Epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Linas of Boston University cautioned that rising numbers of breakthrough infections are to be expected: “There’s a bit of a mathematical relationship. As more and more people are vaccinated, the proportion of cases that we see that are breakthrough cases of course goes up.” That is true. The breakthrough cases represent 1.2% of the vaccinated population, which is half the rate seen in the unvaccinated population. That gives the vaccine a real world efficacy of… 50%. Not very encouraging.

      1. As I pointed out before- looking at the record number of vaccinations in Oregon in April- was followed three months later by a massive record setting surge of new cases in July and August… followed by lots of talk of boosters- everyone needs a booster. All the evidence leans towards the vaccines having a very short life span. The more new evidence and research that comes out- I would agree- not very encouraging. Expect kick-back from those who refuse this data- the studies- the research. They want to talk about “new” and changing dimensions- but only if it fits their bias or narrative- scary stuff !

    1. That is most interesting. “In response to attorney’s FOIA request, US CDC admits that it has no record of an unvaccinated person spreading COVID after recovering from COVID.” The FOIA response kind of makes it sound like there is no record because CDC doesn’t keep records of COVID reinfection. But that’s not true. From CDC dated Aug 6, 2021: “Based on what we know from similar viruses, some reinfections are expected. CDC is actively working to learn more about reinfection to inform public health action.” So essentially they have spent two years looking for something they can’t find, and it took a court order to get them to admit it.

      1. There is more to your interesting news with this comment- “You would assume that if the CDC was going to crush the civil and individual rights of those with natural immunity by having them expelled from school, fired from their jobs, separated from the military, and worse, the CDC would have proof of at least one instance of an unvaccinated, naturally immune individual transmitting the COVID-19 virus to another individual. If you thought this, you would be wrong.”… Posted 7 hours ago- https://aaronsiri.substack.com/p/cdc-admits-crushing-rights-of-naturally

        1. I’ll add to this. High ranking scientist at Fauci’s NIH opposes wide spread vaccination. “Dr. Matthew Memoli runs a clinical studies unit at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the agency headed by Dr. Fauci, and will make the case against vaccine mandates at the NIH event, according to The Wall Street Journal. Memoli has said he supports COVID-19 vaccination in high-risk populations, such as for the elderly or obese, but emailed Fauci on July 30 to say that mandatory vaccination is ‘extraordinarily problematic.’” There’s more, “Dr. Memoli argues that blanket vaccinations of low-risk communities could harm the development of stronger immunity gained from infection.” This is not just some random person – “A 16-year veteran of the NIH, Memoli just received a 2021 NIH director’s award for his work on a national study early-pandemic undiagnosed COVID-19 cases.” https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/one-of-fauci-s-top-scientists-opposes-vaccine-mandates-is-unvaccinated/ar-AAQsJ9f
