PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are 35 newly reported COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, two from Central Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 5,814, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

The 35 deaths include one each in Deschutes and Crook counties, bringing Deschutes County's total to 222 and Crook County's to 62.

OHA also reported 8,040 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 486,202.

More Oregonians receive COVID-19 booster doses

Oregon continues to move closer to meeting Gov. Kate Brown’s goal, announced Dec. 17, of getting 1 million more people in the state a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of January.

When the challenge began, 949,749 people had received a booster dose. Since then, 309,132 Oregonians have received a booster.

As of Tuesday, Oregon needs 690,868 people to get a booster to reach the goal and make our state safer from the Omicron variant, OHA said. Find a booster here.

Consider alternatives for non-urgent health issues

With a record number of cases recorded and the spread of the Omicron variant statewide, Oregonians are being asked to ease the burden on health systems and emergency rooms. If you are looking for non-emergency COVID-19 treatment, please call your doctor or an urgent care clinic. Not sure who to call? Start with 211. You can find a test here.

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.

  1. I find it hard to believe that I am still alive through all this. I have been soooo reckless and careless from the beginning. Just raw dogging life if you will. No mask, no vaccine, hanging out with my friends and family that I love dearly and enjoying life. Just tongue punching fresh air daily without a worry. I feel so blessed that myself and my loved ones are healthy and well. Just a naturally lucky group of people I surround myself with I reckon.

    1. The very first person I knew that got the rona died. He was mostly dead anyway so nobody was surprised. From there, it’s been straightforward. I found it easy to predict the people who would get it first, the chatty always in somebody’s face crowd, and they did. As far as severity, it mostly followed vaccine status. But the whole masking social distancing thing appears to be a total waste of effort. If it did anything, it sure wasn’t evident in my circles. Honestly, I wouldn’t even be aware of a pandemic if not for the fear machine. Four people I know have gotten pretty sick, which is typical in a given year. The other dozens it was minor, again typical. Not sure if I’ve had it or not. I had a nose thing for a week. Cold or Cron, who knows. Who cares. If you asked me to prove the pandemic by personal experience, I couldn’t do it. Can’t say I know anybody who could. Guess we’re all lucky.

      1. My experience is the same. If it wasn’t for the fear machine around covid, I wouldn’t know there was a pandemic either and would just seem like any typical year. Some people getting fairly sick, some barely sick, some not getting sick and no one I know has died from it in my circle.

        1. This is such nonsense! Biden has some explaining to do!

          The following are the top underlying medical conditions linked with COVID-19 deaths:

          Influenza and pneumonia
          Respiratory failure
          Hypertensive disease
          Diabetes
          Vascular and unspecified dementia
          Cardiac Arrest
          Heart failure
          Renal failure
          Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
          Other medical conditions
          According to the CDC 9,683 died in the United States with only having COVID-19 listed on their death certificate.

      2. Masking is a waste the exact same way that covering a sneeze or washing your hands after going to the toilet is a waste. Not all of us are lucky – 800,000+ dead weren’t lucky. You just keep spreading the joy, tho…

  2. Go to the OHA website and really take a hard look at the numbers. If you factor (the way they used to) that Oregon is an aging society and fairly unhealthy in the older populations, the deaths are not much beyond average for any given year, adjusting for the number of people in the state each year. Since 2020, there has been no adjusting for gains or losses in population, numbers are just raw and taken as 50 more people died last week in Deschutes county than died in 2019. That is NOT how data is collected, yet that is what they have been doing. Don’t believe me? Go spend some time on the OHA website looking at Data prior to Covid. Ii can tell you that its not easy to find, you have to do some digging, but it is there in black and white the changes that have been made since 2019. https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/oha.center.for.health.statistics#%21/

  3. I would never have known about it, either, if it wasn’t for the media telling everyone to be afraid. Be very afraid. For my little corner of the world, it’s been a complete non-event. That doesn’t mean that I don’t care. I do. I just haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary.

  4. Here we go folks, straight from the WHO: “With near- and medium-term supply of the available vaccines, the need for equity in access to vaccines across countries to achieve global public health goals, programmatic considerations including vaccine demand, and evolution of the virus, a vaccination strategy based on repeated booster doses of the original vaccine composition is unlikely to be appropriate or sustainable.” Can read it for yourselves. https://www.who.int/news/item/11-01-2022-interim-statement-on-covid-19-vaccines-in-the-context-of-the-circulation-of-the-omicron-sars-cov-2-variant-from-the-who-technical-advisory-group-on-covid-19-vaccine-composition
    European Union declared today that the vaccine just isn’t working and boosters are affecting peoples health. “Repeat booster doses every four months could eventually weaken the immune system and tire out people, according to the European Medicines Agency.” https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/frequent-covid-vaccine-booster-shots-could-weaken-immunity-warn-european-regulators-2703208

    Read for yourselves. Data is there. You just have to search for it because our current leaders aren’t ready to throw in the towel on the unending control they have right now under State of Emergencies.

  5. So where’s the head dumb cluck chicken little who’s been mouthing off all year about- “get the vaccine”- it’ll cut down on cases (Wrong ! 10,000+ for a new record just a few days ago)… reduce hospitalizations (Wrong- chart above shows a dramatic tick upwards)- cut down on deaths (Completely wrong- as deaths have skyrocketed to 35… and the OHA is probably hiding another 100 !) Your Biden jabs are as worthless as he is !

  6. Blah blah blah blah blah. Same old crap different day. Find a source that supports your belief and run with it. Healthcare care personnel are running out of compassion for the likes of you people. Good luck. Regardless of how many people you know have died of COVID healthcare professionals know a different story. You just keep telling yourself that no one you know is going to die from COVID. It’s going to happen sooner than later.
