Oregon reports 404 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 1 new death
PORTLAND, Ore. — There is 1 new COVID-19 related death in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,392, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
Oregon Health Authority reported 404 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today bringing the state total to 166,882.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 32,692 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 22,084 doses were administered on April 3 and 10,608 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on April 3.
Oregon has now administered a total of 1,00,991 first and second doses of Pfizer, 924,661 first and second doses of Moderna and 49,520 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
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).
To date, 1,225,575 doses of Pfizer, 1,102,200 doses of Moderna and 105,800 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines 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 150, which is three fewer than yesterday. There are 43 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one 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.
