Oregon reports 339 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 5 new deaths
PORTLAND, Ore. — There are five new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,362, Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
OHA reported 339 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 161,320.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, 35,608 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 22,630 vaccine doses were administered on March 19, and 12,978 were administered on previous days but entered into the vaccine registry on March 19.
Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).
Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 1,487,154 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. All vaccinations occurred at Oregon hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical service (EMS) agencies, urgent care facilities and Local Public Health Authorities (LPHAs).
To date, 1,858,385 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated today.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 106, which is nine fewer than yesterday. There are 26 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is four fewer than yesterday.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.
