Oregon COVID-19 Update: 9 New Deaths, 2,387 New Cases


There are nine new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,928, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 2,387 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, which is a record number of cases and brings the state total to 236,698.

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 670, which is five more than Wednesday. There are 177 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is five more than Wednesday.

“Our hospitals are full. Patients are boarding and being cared for in emergency departments when they should be admitted to hospital beds. Our ICUs are full. Our doctors and nurses are exhausted and rightfully frustrated because this crisis is avoidable. It is like watching a train wreck coming and knowing that there’s an opportunity to switch tracks, yet we feel helpless while we watch unnecessary loss of life. That is why it is essential that we all do our part to get vaccinated and wear a mask indoors,” said David Zonies, M.D., Associate Chief Medical Officer and Professor of Surgery at Oregon Health & Science University.
