Corona Virus Update – March 4th

Oregon reports 696 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 34 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 34 new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 6,686, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

OHA reported 696 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 696,003.

To date, there have been 192,934 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. Of those cases, 44,109, or 22.9%, were fully vaccinated. The median age of all cases is 41.

The report shows that the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people is twice the rate as in vaccinated people, and three times higher than in people who are fully vaccinated and boosted.

To date, 2.4% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 0.5% have died. The median age of vaccinated people who died is 80.

Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Oregonians are encouraged to get vaccinated and, if eligible, to get a booster shot.
