Oregon COVID-19 Update: 19 New Deaths, 816 New Cases


There are 19 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 5,318, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

COVID-19 weekly cases, hospitalizations and deaths rise

OHA’s COVID-19 Weekly Report released today shows a decrease in daily cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

OHA reported 6,435 new cases of COVID-19 during the week of Monday, Nov. 29, through Sunday, Dec. 5. That is a 50% increase from the previous week. The rise is likely a rebound from Thanksgiving weekend, which saw a significant reduction in reported tests.

The overall incidence of reported COVID-19 in Oregon varied by county vaccination rate but continues to be lowest in the five counties where the vaccination rates were more than 70%.

There were 134,705 tests for COVID-19 for the week of Nov. 28 through Dec. 4. The percentage of positive tests rose slightly to 5.9%, up from 5.6% the previous week.

There were 362 new COVID-19 hospitalizations, up from 226 last week. This also likely reflects a rebound in reporting after Thanksgiving weekend.

There were 126 reported COVID-19-related deaths, one more than the 125 reported the previous week.
