The Oregon Health Authority is reporting that the number of deaths from the Corona Virus in Oregon continues its presence in Oregon, but it seems to be moderating. Recently deaths were limited to three elderly people: in Wasco, Lane and Marion Counties. The counties with the most new infections were Lane 39 – Multnomah 59 – Washington 66. Lincoln County 1 – Lincoln County hangin’ in there at its Stage 2 designation from the governor’s office.
What’s really disconcerting is the drift of infections among Oregonians. The younger end of the scale is rising rapidly while tapering off for the older folks. Here’s the tally:
You can see that the virus is going after the younger segment of our population with a vengeance. It’s why the Oregon Health Authority is strongly recommending parents don’t take their children out trick-or-treating on Halloween. More and more younger people are getting sick as it is. OHA is also strongly recommending that Thanksgiving Dinners should have no more than ten participants at or near the table.
