Oregon reports 2 more COVID-19 deaths, nearly 1,000 new cases over past 3 days


PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are two new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,838, the Oregon Health Authority reported Monday. 

Oregon Health Authority reported 993 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 (over a three-day period) as of 12:01 a.m. Monday, bringing the state total to 215,853.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Monday that 2,517 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 1,846 doses were administered on Sunday and 671 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Sunday.

The seven-day running average is now 4,557 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,641,101 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,777,797 first and second doses of Moderna and 179,091 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Monday, 2,471,106 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,297,955 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

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).

To date, 3,009,195 doses of Pfizer, 2,286,740 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated Monday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 207, which is 14 more than Sunday. There are 58 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is three more than Sunday.

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.

St. Charles Bend reported 13 COVID-19 patients early Monday, six of whom were in the ICU, with three on ventilators.
