Covid 19 – Rising up in the community. People have to PAY ATTENTION!!

OHA posts highest weekly case count

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) released its latest COVID-19 Weekly Report which showed that during the week of Monday, Oct. 26, through Sunday, Nov. 1, OHA recorded 3,542 new cases of COVID-19 infection—up 34% from last week’s tally of 2,642.

This is the second consecutive week daily case counts set a record high for the pandemic.

The number of newly tested Oregonians rose to 34,591 and the percentage of positive tests rose sharply to 8.4%.

Thirty-seven Oregonians were reported to have died in association with COVID-19—compared to 27 the previous week and 160 were hospitalized.

People aged 20 to 49 accounted for the largest percentage of infection at 56%, despite accounting for 39% of the total population. Persons under 30 accounted for 38% of the cases.

People over 80 accounted for 50% of COVID-19 associated deaths and people over 70 accounted for 74% of deaths associated with the illness.

Schools are not major drivers of COVID-19 spread across Oregon. Cases are appearing at schools because there is more community spread.

This week’s report reflects the statewide trend of sharply rising cases, with 13 schools providing in-school instruction that that had at least one case in a student or staff/volunteer that attended or worked during their infectious or exposure period.

As COVID-19 cases continue to surge, OHA reminds people to:

  • Wear a face covering
  • Keep physically distant.
  • Avoid large gatherings and restrict gatherings with people outside of your household.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene
