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.

Oregon records more than 5,000 COVID-19 related deaths

Oregon health officials reported 103 new COVID-19 related deaths, bringing the state’s death toll to more than 5,000 COVID-19 related deaths since the start of the pandemic. As of Nov. 22, Oregon has recorded 5,017 COVID-19 related deaths.

Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen issued the following statement marking Oregon’s tragic losses:

"Today Oregon marks more than 5,000 lives lost to COVID-19. As we head into the second Thanksgiving holiday since the start of the pandemic, too many Oregon families will see empty chairs around their holiday dinner tables, making this latest tragic milestone all the more heartbreaking.

We’ve lost mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers. Coworkers and neighbors. Bridge partners and fishing buddies. Teachers, grocery workers and first responders. Each death leaves a hole in someone’s home and someone’s heart that will never be filled again.

These losses are especially painful because nearly all our most recent deaths could have been prevented by COVID-19 vaccines, which remain the best protection against serious illness and death.

As we gather for the coming holidays, look around your table. Consider the family and friends in your life. Let’s make sure the loved ones you care about and count on are there to share next Thanksgiving with you. And all the important celebrations in your life.

The Delta variant remains a danger to people who aren’t vaccinated or need a booster. Hospitals remain full of people who are unvaccinated and gravely ill with COVID-19.

But you have the power to protect yourself and the people around you. This holiday, you’re at less risk if you’re vaccinated and if you get a booster when the time is right. Smaller gatherings are less risky than large gatherings, especially indoors. Take care around older adults. Think hard about wearing a mask if you’re indoors with people who aren’t vaccinated, especially older people.

Vaccinate children who are 5 and older to protect them and keep them in school. And remember, if you’re just now choosing to be vaccinated, you won’t be fully protected by Thanksgiving, so please wear a mask if you are spending time with others.

Since the start of the pandemic, Oregonians have come together so many times to protect each other. More than eight in 10 adults are vaccinated. And Oregonians wear masks in public more frequently than people in most other states. You’re vaccinating younger children at higher rates than the national average. Thank you for taking action to stop COVID-19 from spreading. Together, we can save more lives and keep the virus from claiming more people of all ages."

  1. In 11 months of leadership, President Trump provided every single request Brown made. And because of his leadership and guidance- Oregon had 1865 deaths related to CV19 in 11 months. Biden and Brown- with a glowing media to promote their messaging- a vaccine that Fauci and experts “say” does what they planned it to do- Oregon has suffered through an additional 3174 (with another 550 yet to be added in because of an OHA computer glitch) in a mere 9 months… that is damn near “double” the number of deaths- and we still have 2 more months to go to hit 11 ! Where is the outrage ? Where are the calls for impeachment ?? Where is the accountability ? I see lot’s of finger pointing- but this is 100% on the failed leadership of the Demokkkrat party- and it makes me sick !

  2. I think that almost half of the new cases are breakthrough cases. OHA will not disclose it because they have no idea. I would encourage everyone to get vaccinated and to get boosters if eli

    1. Last week’s breakthrough report, posted here in their daily releases, said it was roughly 1 out of 4, as it has been for many weeks. They also note how small a percentage of the breakthrough cases involve serious illness.

      1. “They also note how small a percentage of the breakthrough cases involve serious illness.”… Do they also note that these breakthrough cases (as rare as they may be) may result in death like what we saw with Colin Powell ?

          1. What officials? They have all been wrong Barney. Are you referring to the same people that said “two weeks to flatten the curve?” If these numbers were real, we’d be in a maximum lockdown.

          2. There is no mandatory requirement to report deaths associated with breakthrough cases- so your “officials” really have no idea how frequent these events are.

  3. Have we made it thru the 550 that were “missed” yet? Has anyone else looked at the dates for every one of these? There are only 7 from this month, November 2021. I am in no way minimizing the number but I stick to my point on this, these missing deaths are being used now to increase the current deaths. And NO I don’t have any “proof” other than this, OHA could have very easily released all the missing deaths in one lump report. Why then are they continuing to slide them in over a period of weeks? My guess is not many people realize that for a week or so before the announcement of the mysterious “computer glitch” the deaths were in single digits every day or very close to it. And if you count just current deaths they continue to be very low. And I want to point this out again just in case anyone missed it above. These numbers were for a 3-day weekend and the current deaths are only 7. Just asking the questions that some don’t and wondering why…..

    1. How do you know they had all 550 deaths ready to add at once, rather than putting the missed ones through their system and adding them over a period of weeks as they said they would do in the initial announcement?
      I believe most people understand what they are doing.

      1. Ok BL. It is very obvious that you and I will never agree on this subject. So let me try to at least explain what I think would be acceptable compared to what is actually happening.
        Current Headline:
        Oregon reports 103 more COVID-19 related deaths, 8 from C.O.; state’s pandemic death toll tops 5,000

        Proposed Headline:
        Oregon reports 103 more COVID-19 related deaths, (of which 7 are from November and the rest are from the 550 missed earlier this year), 8 from C.O.; state’s pandemic death toll tops 5,000

        Current text from story:
        The 103 new deaths and 1,753 new cases reported Monday include data recorded by counties for the three-day period between Friday and Sunday

        Proposed text: The 7 deaths and 1,753 new cases reported Monday include data recorded by counties for the three-day period between Friday and Sunday. The remaining 96 deaths were from earlier in the year and are being reported on at this time.

        I know this adds more words but is there anything wrong at all with my proposed options above??? Wouldn’t this be more TRUTHFUL AND HONEST?? I am not as confident as you are that “most people understand what they are doing” as most people these days don’t bother to read news stories. They read the headline and that is it. Hence the reason headlines these days can be very inflammatory or controversial and lead people to believe one thing when the story itself contains much more information that may or may not convey what the headline does. I see it all the time and it is amazing how many people fall for it.

        1. Way too long a headline, no other media outlet does as you suggest.
          The information here is factual and accurate.
          OHA releases are posted in full with only minor revisions. There is no way you know which of those deaths are included in the 550, and most people realize the agency is doing what it said it would do.
          That facts are called inflammatory reflects on the accuser far more than the target.

          1. As expected you “toe the line” here.
            1. I don’t care how long the headline is nor do I care that no other media outlet does as I suggest. That seems to be the problem. Shorten the headline but state the vital info so as not to misinform. Simple as that.
            2. You are correct that I have no way of knowing which of the deaths are part of the 550 except that I can make simple deductions based on the original statement and some simple deduction. OHA stated the missing deaths were from a certain range of months so I can then look at the reported “infected/died dates” and figure that ones falling in that range are most likely from the 550. Again this is common sense for some but others seem to have forgotten what common sense is.
            3. “The information here is factual and accurate.” I don’t believe I ever said anything to the contrary. I said “Truthful and Honest”. Totally different terms and meanings. And this leads to:
            4. “That facts are called inflammatory reflects on the accuser far more than the target.” My statement is my opinion of how this information can be taken and therefore is nothing more than my opinion. I don’t believe I “Accused” anywhere in my statements. I am pointing out just one way these can be misconstrued and a very simple solution to minimize any confusion. What is really striking these days is that there seems to be a huge push by a certain part of the population to silence or cancel anything other than the prescribed narrative, whatever it may be. This is beyond disturbing and unheard of before. There is never just one side to a story unless that side is in control and only wants their story to go out. We have the right to ask for second or third opinions in normal medical situations but not this one. In the legal system there is prosecution and defense. And in this situation apparently I am not allowed to point out or suggest different ways to provide information that might explain more thoroughly what is going on so everyone understands. I stand by my statements and suggestions as is and nothing will change that. Bottom line is last weekend there were 7 deaths for 3 days. Prove me wrong.

            1. You might get along well at CNN, where they love 30-plus-word headlines. We don’t want won’t do that. It’s unwieldy and just not good journalism.
              Factual and accurate ARE “truthful and honest.” Your differentiation is… very odd.
              I cannot recall any other similar complaints.
              And please don’t pick up the “prove me wrong” ridiculousness. We allow 100s of disputes of the facts here, drawing upset and concern among those who trust and believe the OHA and government, so please skip the “cancel culture” crap, please. You just got done acknowledging the info is truthful and accurate.
              No media outlet in the state (probably country) does what you wish.
              Note that many days they correct duplicates and info in error?
              I won’t belabor this any more, make up any false motives you wish. We will be consistent and continue to provide this info in full.
              Have a nice night.

        2. You are right- this is all about public trust towards an organization funded by our tax dollars- so it is our right to demand complete transparency truthfulness and honesty… and we are not getting that. Fact- the original announcement stated 550 unreported deaths between May and August- that is not true ! The time frames have secretly expanded to include April (and as we see today) September ! Oregon’s numbers are being manipulated to create confusion- the ol’ three card monte of deception… and Brown and the OHA should be called out for it.

      2. “How do you know they had all 550 deaths ready to add at once”… Because they announced 550 and not 338 or 491 ! Why would they announce 550 if they didn’t have the exact information ? I don’t believe the OHA is rounding up or down- they know exactly who-what-when-how-and where… so release the data and move on.
