Oregon Health Authority

New model shows continued slowing in cases, hospitalizations

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 20 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including two from Deschutes County, raising the state’s death toll to 4,750, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

OHA also reported 1,811 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 378,174.

The 1,811 new cases reported today include data recorded by counties for the two-day period between Wednesday, Nov. 10 and Thursday, Nov. 11.

Newest COVID-19 model shows continued slowing in cases, hospitalizations

Oregon Health & Science University is now providing the COVID-19 forecast model.

The latest report projects a continuing overall decline in cases and hospitalizations for the remainder of this year. Pediatric hospitalizations remained steady and ICU admissions for COVID-19 related illness increased slightly over last week.

The model makes it clear that adherence to mask wearing and following other public health protocols is important in preventing infection and therefore lowering infection and hospitalizations, OHA said.

OHA releases new COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough report

OHA’s most recent update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released Friday, found that 71% of the 6,776 reported COVID-19 cases between Oct. 31 and Nov. 6 occurred in unvaccinated people.

There were 1,962 breakthrough cases, accounting for 29% of all cases.

The average age of the breakthrough cases during that period was 45. Forty breakthrough cases involved residents of care facilities, senior living communities or other congregate care settings. There were 76 cases in people ages 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 39,686 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. The average age of all cases is 48. Breakthrough cases have been reported in all 36 counties.

Cases of COVID-19 are far more common in unvaccinated people. The report shows that the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people is four times higher than in vaccinated people.

To date, 4.4% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 1.1% have died. The average age of vaccinated people who died was 80.

Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The latest breakthrough report can be found here.

Pediatric weekly dashboard update

Today, OHA published its latest weekly dashboard report of pediatric COVID-19 case data in Oregon.

In the most recent full week’s data, case rates were highest among people ages 5 to11, followed by people ages 12 to 17.

Pediatric case rates remain highest among people who identify as American Indian/Alaska Native, Pacific Islander or Black. American Indian/Alaska Native pediatric case rates are now the highest overall.

For the most recent week, pediatric case rates were 1.5 times higher among people who identify as American Indian/Alaska Native compared to people who identify as white.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 482, which is 14 fewer than Thursday. There are 120 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six fewer than Thursday.

There are 58 available adult ICU beds out of 682 total (9% availability) and 267 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,065 (7% availability).

St. Charles Bend reported 48 COVID-19 patients as of early Friday, nine of whom were in the ICU, with eight on ventilators. None of the nine ICU patients were fully vaccinated, the hospital said, while 38 of the 48 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.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Friday that 22,859 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Thursday. Of that total, 5,551 were initial doses, 676 were second doses and 7,881 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 8,486 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Thursday.

  1. “It wasn’t until you pointed your gun at him, advanced on him, with your gun and your hands down, pointed at him, that he fired, right?” Again, Grosskreutz said, “Correct.”

    Chirafisi asked, “At this point, you’re holding a loaded chamber of a Glock .27 in your right hand, yes?” Grosskreutz said, “That is correct, yes.” Chirafisi asked, “You’re are advancing on Mr. Rittenhouse, who is seated on his butt, right?” Grosskreutz said, “That is correct.”

    Later an independent journalist who was filming that night was called to the stand. Chirafisi asked, “[Rittenhouse] wasn’t doing anything aggressively, correct?” Kristan Harris said, “I agree with that.” Chirafisi continued, “He wasn’t verbally threatening anyone?” Harris said, “No, he was offering help.” Chirafisi asked, “He wasn’t using his firearm in a way to scare or intimidate people by pointing it at them, agreed?” Harris said, “Agreed.”

  2. Per Commissioner Patty Adair at the Commissioners meeting, she was told that anyone who tested positive for Covid within 6 months of their death is counted as dying from Covid. Ask your local mortuary if death numbers have been higher than normal. The answer is going to be not really. The way OHA and CDC are manipulating numbers is disgusting.

    1. We know Barney or someone from the z will chime in asking where’s the proof on that and if it’s disgusting proof. Baseless claims can be made till the 🐄 come home against the right. But anything against the left bah “‘-&$*’. Sorry that happens when I’m typing and realize a deer is staring at me.

  3. Hey Sagebrush – So you are saying these 732,000 deaths from Covid would have died anyway? I don´t think so. But if bunker Donnie had not been hiding the information that this virus was bad from the public then the numbers would have been 40% less. But instead his said in Feb 2020 that there were on 15 people in the US and it would just stop and go away.

    1. Hey Dale- I don’t see anything even remotely related to your accusation that “they would have died anyway” in Sage’s post… your reference to such an insensitive concept needs to be removed- like all the other’s- where’s the consistency here ? As for the rest of your nonsense- to date- more Oregonians have died from CV19 related issues since Biden-Brown took office- to the tune of 2885 (with another est. 400 yet to be added by the OHA)… on them- that is in a 9 month period- meaning these two will have doubled Trump’s number of 1865 (the day he left office)… by the end of the year… and those Biden-Brown numbers come with full vaccinations at their disposal- all the updated science- all three levels of control of government- and a manipulating media. Anybody think this is gonna get better under this Demokant control is a fool ! Biden-Brown are failing miserably and people are dying. All because people like Dale bought into four years of lies. what else ya got Dale- proof that the Steele Dossier was all fact- that Hunter Biden really is a Picasso in disguise- Pigs can fly ???

    1. In Oregon- Biden-Brown will have doubled the numbers of deaths from under Trump (1865 up to Jan 22) to the current 4750- this is an additional 2885- with as many as 450 yet added by the OHA because of their computer glitch- all in 9 horrific and failed months of Biden-Brown ! Why aren’t the vaccines working as promised under Biden ? “Get the jabs- you won’t get covid” ! Words that set the tone for the big lie- the massive hoax… where’s the media to call him out daily for this kind of never-ending stupidity ? Oh yeh- they’re busy promoting a vaccine with a 25% failure rate- telling you all about the experts at CNN- the same people who sold you the Steele Dossier for three years… Sigh !!!

    2. Dale, for the non believers the number of deaths seems to be meaningless.

      The old, those with cancer,asthma, heart disease…they don’t matter…

      Or so that is what it seems many are saying. “They should’ve taken care of themselves better.” Not grown old, etc.

      I say to those who feel that way may you never have a health problem. May you never be diagnosed with cancer. May you never lose a loved one to COVID.

      Fact ~ DT could have managed this differently from the get-go. Too little too late.

          1. Very sad, but every medicine ever created has had side-effects/warnings, sometimes very rare tragic outcomes. Watching 10 minutes of TV will bring a few drug ads with similar warnings. Doesn’t mean they don’t benefit the vast majority of those who take them.
            “Public health officials said the syndrome was a “very rare” complication of the vaccine. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has counted three other similar deaths nationally.”

            1. Whether I choose the one in a million odds or the one in a hundred thousand odds should be my choice, especially now that I have had it and recovered. The shot will just introduce added risk.

                1. Putting words in others’ mouths, nothing of the sort of what they say, is very sad.
                  Of course there should and are exceptions. That doesn’t change the basic reality.

                2. Again, putting words in my mouth. Their risk is greatly reduced, the experts you don’t like say – not eliminated. No vaccine, no medicine is 100%. Doesn’t mean they don’t have benefits that for most outweigh the risks.

      1. So everyone is supposed to live forever? There is something wrong with you their are no guarantees on how long you live period. The best chance you have is taking care of the one and only body you have in this life. If you don’t YOU have deal with the consequences not me.

  4. BTW- I love it when people like Dale remind us all of the lies and disinformation that was promoted over the last year of the previous administration… reminding us all how good we had it when President Trump was in office- now look at the carnage under Biden-Brown !

    1. https://www.healthline.com/health-news/why-florida-now-has-the-lowest-covid-19-case-rate
      “What does that really mean when they say that Florida has the lowest rate in the country?” Dr. David Cutler, a family medicine physician at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California, told Healthline.

      “Because Florida only reports those positive cases among people who are full-time residents of Florida. So, if your full-time residence is in Ohio, and you have a condo in Miami Beach and you go down there and you get COVID, you’re not a case in Florida. You’re not even a case in Ohio. You’re nothing, and that’s why I don’t put a lot of impact on that Florida case rate.”

      But even if we do take the case rate at face value, we probably shouldn’t weigh it very strongly, says Dr. Purvi Parikh, an adult and pediatric allergist and immunologist with Allergy & Asthma Network.

      “I do not think their overall caseload affects the current infection rate. That depends on the spread of disease, vaccinations, and other factors,” Parikh told Healthline. “There was a time a few months back where they had a very high infection rate, with ICUs and hospitals at capacity, while other areas of the country had low infection rates.”

      1. And.. “One factor that might account for the current low case rate is that COVID-19 has already touched many Floridians.

        The state has seen more than 60,000 deaths from the coronavirus, the third-highest in the nation behind Texas and California.

        It also had the third-highest total number of COVID-19 cases — 3.6 million — again behind Texas and California.”

        1. And Wyoming has had less than 1300 deaths, what is your point? Is it that Biden has beat Trump again by having more people die from Covid under his watch? Or is it that Biden has had more Soldiers die from suicide bombers? Oh wait, i know! Its that Biden has the honor of enacting policies that have created the greatest increase in inflation in Decades!
