Oregon COVID-19 Update: 18 New Deaths, 5,417 New Cases


There are 18 new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 6,181, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

OHA reported 5,417 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 649,389.

OHA releases new COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough report

OHA’s most recent update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released today, reported 44,421 cases of COVID-19 during the week of Jan. 23 to Jan. 29.

Of those cases, 28,990, or 65.3%, were unvaccinated people and 15,431, or 34.1%, were vaccine breakthrough cases. Among the vaccine breakthrough cases, 4,852, or 31.4%, were fully vaccinated and boosted.

The average age of the breakthrough cases during that period was 48. One hundred twenty-eight breakthrough cases involved residents of care facilities, senior living communities or other congregate care settings. There were 1,223 cases in people aged 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 123,740 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. The average age of all breakthrough cases is 41. Breakthrough cases have been reported in all 36 counties.

The report shows the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people is more than 3.1 times higher than in vaccinated people and 6.4 times higher than in people who are fully vaccinated and boosted.

To date, 2.7% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 0.6% have died. The average age of vaccinated people who died is 81.

As case counts have increased dramatically during the Omicron surge, breakthrough case ascertainment has been unable to keep pace with the volume of reported cases because about a third of recent case vaccination status is unknown. 

OHA is working toward alternative methods to identify vaccination status for all reported cases in a timely manner.

Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Oregonians are encouraged to get vaccinated and, if eligible, to get a booster shot.

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 1,087, which is 17 fewer than yesterday. There are 183 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 10 fewer than yesterday.

There are 57 available adult ICU beds out of 632 total (9% availability) and 250 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,141 (6% availability).

Today, OHA reported that 9,587 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry Feb. 2. Of that total, 808 were initial doses, 909 were second doses and 3,081 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 4,663 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry Feb. 2.
