The new variant of the Covid-19 (Delta) is pounding Oregon

Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 News Release

Oregon reports 4,701 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 24 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 24 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 3,036 the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.  Oregon Health Authority reported 4,701 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m., today bringing the state total to 257,644. The 4,701 cases reported today include new infections recorded by counties for the 3-day period between Friday, Aug. 20, and Sunday, Aug. 22.

Vaccinations in Oregon

Today, OHA reported that 4,491 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 672 were initial doses and 363 were second doses administered on Aug. 22. The remaining 3,367 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Aug. 22.  The seven-day running average is now 7,203 doses per day.  Oregon has now administered 2,761,952 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,826,742 first and second doses of Moderna and 194,128 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.  As of today, 2,587,552 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,373,947 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

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).

These data are preliminary and subject to change.   Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboardsand have been updated today.

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.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms. Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.  

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, an urgent care center will help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.  

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.
