PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- COVID-19 has claimed 16 more lives in Oregon, including Jefferson County's 17th death, raising the state’s death toll to 1,449, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

The agency said a 71-year-old Jefferson County man, with no underlying conditions, tested positive on Dec. 11 and died on Christmas Eve at St. Charles-Bend.

Also, a 63-year-old Harney County woman died Sunday at the Bend hospital, four days after testing positive for COVID-19. She had underlying conditions, OHA sads.

OHA also reported 713 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 111,227.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA is providing daily updates on administered doses of COVID-19 vaccines in Oregon on its vaccination data dashboard.

On Monday, 4,356 doses of vaccine were administered, raising the state’s total number of first vaccine doses to 25,972. All vaccinations occurred at Oregon hospitals and long-term care facilities, OHA said.

St. Charles Health System reported it has given 1,415 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations so far.

The state dashboard provides weekday updates on the number of people vaccinated, both by state and by county, along with key demographic information showing the race, ethnicity, sex and age of everyone who has been vaccinated. OHA will begin publishing this data during weekends starting on Saturday, Jan. 2.

On Tuesday, OHA unveiled a new data dashboard that compiles COVID-19 cases and other data in a single, interactive format. The dashboard will include new cases, seven-day daily averages of cases, patients with COVID-19 who are currently hospitalized, test results reported, and new deaths. The dashboard will be updated Monday through Friday.

Information in the dashboard comes from existing data. One of the features of the dashboard is a graph that shows the number of new cases by the date they are reported to a public health authority, along with the seven-day daily average of cases. These numbers align with the number of new cases reported in our daily press release and Daily Update.

You can find the new dashboard on the OHA COVID-19 website. On the dropdown menus, click on “Daily Update.”

COVID-19 hospitalizations

There are 527 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 across Oregon, which is 12 more than Monday. There are 119 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six more than Monday.

St. Charles Health System reported 30 COVID-19 patients as of 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, seven of whom were in the ICU, five on ventilators.

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.

      1. Time to put Cryin’ Ryan Scammer to bed ! So here are the facts on your false claims of flooded ER’s and over-worked hospital staff- this is your smoking gun people- so pay attention ! According to the OHA data posted here- https://public.tableau.com/profile/oregon.health.authority.covid.19#!/vizhome/OregonCOVID-19Update/EmergencyDepartment- we see that from March 17th to December 28th- a full nine months- that the weekly number of hospital Emergency room visits is “down” by a clear 1000 patients when compared to the 2019-2020 months from December to March. What you are seeing are the results from Kovid Kate Brown’s executive order 20-12 signed March 23rd- titled Stay Home Save lives (Go Broke) mandates ! In short- this 9 month time period demonstrates what life in a secluded shut down bubble looks like. Schools were not open so children didn’t fall off the swings ! Rodeos were cancelled so cowboys didn’t break bones !! Skate board parks were closed so teens didn’t bang their heads !!! Restaurants went out of business so chefs didn’t cut their fingers !!!! So clearly- compared to the months of December to March- Oregonians have led a boring mundane non-adventurous low risk life- which pours gallons of cold water on Ryanscammers claims that ER’s are over-run and hospital beds are completely occupied- the data don’t lie- Cryin Ryan does ! What I hear Oregonians saying to Kalamity Kate in Salem- is that they want their fun back- their adventures- their freedoms to take risks- learning to walk involves a lot of falling down- Kate has taken that away and somehow believes it’s good for Oregonians- what she’s creating is a generation of Fraidy-Cats- gutless- non-risk taking worry warts who will never feel the exhilaration of the wind whipping across their cheeks as they barrel down a snow covered mountain in the heart of winter… Cause it’s just too damn dangerous ! Kovid Kate Brown has no right to restrict our personal liberties and God given rights to take these chances and live with the consequences ! The facts are clear- that little meaningless blue line at the bottom of the chart that says “covid visits” is akin to an ant biting the hind side of a rhino- as in “meaningless” ! I dare anyone to look at that data and argue otherwise- but do it without name-calling or personal attacks- time to admit yer wrong !

  1. Yeah open up already. None of the news outlets are spending anytime talking about the underlying conditions because it goes against their narrative. Covid is real but the response is a joke. Still greater than 99.9% recovery rate. Comrade Brown is killing this state.

    1. No, they’re spending time talking about the tired medical staff struggling to keep up with the neverending barrage of sick people dying in makeshift beds and rationing healthcare. Seriously go talk to an ER or ICU doctor. They’re tired. They’re having PTSD from the constant death they’re seeing.

      But hey, let’s open up! Make sure those doctors quit their jobs!

      Get real. Humans can only take to much. Try some empathy.

  2. Never open up this economy….never!!!
    Not until the Government says it is completely safe from all hazards!!!!!!
    Look I get it, some of you are losing your businesses and homes, maybe contemplating suicide (please do not do that) going back to drugs and alcohol, being abusive to loved ones, suffocating your kids in social isolation and lack of education.
    If it saves even one life it will all be worth it.
    Teachers, politicians, the wealthy and the lucky all thank you for your sacrifice so they may still go on without any interruption of a single paycheck.
    Please keep doing as you are told and do not complain about your loss or your selfishness will be noted for later reprisal.
    OBEY

    1. This would be pretty funny if it wasn’t so frustrating and true. Really sad times for those that are being hit financially and mentally and for the better part ignored. Or as one commenter on this site said “they just need to bite the bullet”. Probably a retiree with a nice pension who said that, but who are we to judge.

      1. It’s all about those who are still making money (the lock it down people)
        And those that are drowning (the please give me my rights back people)

        This is civil war fuel.

    2. Please do OBEY. As the parent of a child who survived cancer, OBEY the tired, shell-shocked medical staff trying to keep you alive when you crash your car or have a heart attack and end up in the ICU. OBEY when they tell you to wear a mask; they wear one each and every day, and would never dream of performing surgery on you without one. OBEY when they tell you that staying home will keep grandma or mom from dying.

      1. Indeed, no matter what they tell you to do…..OBEY and Submit.
        That’s why I don’t drive a car anymore (I am assuming you don’t either) it’s just too risky to others.
        Always OBEY, do not question the results, never question that a cure can be worse than a disease, never contemplate unintended consequences, ignore subtle secondary death in favor of simple answers.
        And as someone who has a child I repeat…. NEVER open up, NEVER!!!!
        The Flu is way more deadly to kids than COVID so please never let them back to normal life, it’s just too dangerous.
        Follow the science.
        It’s nice that we agree, thank you.

          1. Nope…they have something called a IMMUNE SYSTEM that has worked wonderfully for 20 years. I plan on letting it continue to work. Did you know that if you wear a mask daily and eliminate normal “bad” bacteria/virus, you will have a immune system that will not be ready to protect you when needed. God’s little helper. Hope you get vaccinated against MSM now!!!
