Oregon COVID-19 Update: 54 New Deaths, 433 New Cases


There are 54 new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 6,854, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

OHA reported 433 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 698,982.

OHA’s most recent update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released today, reported 4,104 cases of COVID-19 during the week of Feb. 27 to Mar. 5.

Of those cases, 2,436, or 59.4%, were unvaccinated people and 1,667, or 40.6%, were vaccine breakthrough cases. Among the breakthrough cases, 776, or 46.6%, were fully vaccinated and boosted.

The median age of the breakthrough cases during that period was 55. Twenty-four breakthrough cases involved residents of care facilities, senior living communities or other congregate care settings. There were 61 cases in people ages 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 194,613 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. Of those cases, 44,883, or 23.1%, were fully vaccinated and boosted at the time of infection. The median age of all cases is 41.

The report shows that the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people is approximately 2.8 times the rate as in vaccinated people, and four times higher than in people who are fully vaccinated and boosted.

To date, 2.5% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 0.5% have died. The median age of vaccinated people who died is 80.

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 271, which is one more than yesterday. There are 45 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 10 fewer than yesterday.

There are 94 available adult ICU beds out of 653 total (14% availability) and 323 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,314 (7% availability).

Today, OHA reported that 3,529 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry March 9. Of that total, 335 were initial doses, 406 were second doses and 961 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 1,702 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry March 9.

The seven-day running average is now 2,957 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 4,163,977 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 239,033 doses of Pfizer pediatric, 2,724,965 doses of Moderna and 269,260 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
