Covid-19 Update 10/27/21

Oregon reports 1,360 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 16 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 16 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 4,334, Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported 1,360 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 362,561.

OHA updates COVID-19 Vaccination Metrics dashboard to show uptake of third and booster doses in Oregon.

The updated dashboard will now focus on three important metrics:

The percentage of people who have initiated COVID-19 vaccination and have received at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.
The percentage of people who have completed their primary series, or have received one dose of Johnson & Johnson or two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.

The percentage of people who have received an extra dose beyond their primary series of any COVID-19 vaccine.
Third and booster doses are reported together, along with any extra dose beyond the primary series of any COVID-19 vaccine consistent with guidelines and recommendations for mixing and matching additional doses beyond primary series.

The statewide, age and race and ethnicity tabs will all be updated by demographic or county for each of those metrics as well.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 554, which is 12 more than yesterday. There are 126 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one fewer than yesterday.

There are 45 available adult ICU beds out of 692 total (7% availability) and 247 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,144 (6% availability).

Note: OHA incorrectly reported yesterday that the 127 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds were four fewer than the previous day. The 127 total was four more than the previous day.

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, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.
