PORTLAND, Ore. — COVID-19 has claimed three more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 124, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 8 a.m. today, May 8th. Oregon Health Authority reported 75 new confirmed cases and five new presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 8 a.m. today bringing the state total to 3,068. The new confirmed cases reported today are in the following counties: Clackamas (9), Clatsop (9), Deschutes (1), Lane (2), Linn (1), Marion (13), Morrow (1), Multnomah (30), Polk (2), Umatilla (3), Wasco (1), Washington (8).
Note: During routine data reconciliation, a presumptive case originally reported as a Benton County case was later determined not to be a case. It was subtracted from Thursday’s state total, and the total number of cases in Benton County went down by one to reflect this change.
Also, the number of hospitalizations in the 10-19 age group dropped by one. During routine data reconciliation, a person was determined not to have been hospitalized during their COVID-19 illness.
