Oregon reports 3 more COVID-19 related deaths, 365 new cases


 PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are three new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,322, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.

OHA also reported 365 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 159,392.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 32,429 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Saturday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 18,556 doses were administered on Friday and 13,873 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Friday.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 1,301,968 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 1,575,705 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated Saturday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 104, which is 19 fewer than Friday. There are 23 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which did not change from Friday.

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.
