The Covid creeper is still up to its main mission…to kill people…

Oregon reports 320 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 5 new deaths

There are five new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 7,144, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.  OHA reported 320 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 704,152.

OHA releases new COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough report

OHA’s most recent update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released today, reported 1,599 cases of COVID-19 during the week of March 20 to March 26.

Of those cases, 850, or 53.2%, were unvaccinated people, and 748, or 46.8%, were vaccine breakthrough cases. Among the breakthrough cases, 433, or 57.9%, were fully vaccinated and boosted.

The median age of the breakthrough cases during that period was 48. Twelve breakthrough cases involved residents of care facilities, senior living communities or other congregate care settings. There were 29 breakthrough cases in people ages 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 197,423 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. Of those cases, 46,403 or 23.5%, were fully vaccinated. The median age of all cases is 41.

The report shows that the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people last week was approximately three times higher than in vaccinated people, and in people who are fully vaccinated and boosted.

To date, 2.6% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized, and 0.6% 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, get a booster shot.

State response to hospital surge winds down

Today is the final day of operation for the Healthcare Surge Unified Command team that was mobilized in August 2021 to support Oregon’s coordinated response to the Delta and Omicron surges affecting hospitals and health systems. The team included staff from OHA and the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS).

The phased demobilization of the team began in February, after data showed dramatic decreases in the number of hospitalizations following the highest number of hospitalizations in January during the Omicron surge. Though the period of active operations ends today, some team members will continue to serve through the end of June. Starting April 1, operations will transition from an active emergency response phase to one focused on building resiliency throughout the state’s health care system.
