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.

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.
