Oregon reports 13 more COVID-19 related deaths, including Deschutes 60th – KTVZ

Another 269 new cases; Douglas County resident has Brazilian variant

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are 13 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including the 60th in Deschutes County, raising the state’s death toll to 2,225, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

OHA also reported 269 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 156,037.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 10,911 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Tuesday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 3,894 doses were administered on Monday and 7,017 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

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).

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 997,448 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 1,244,505 doses of vaccine 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 Tuesday.

St. Charles Health System reported 27,445 COVID-19 vaccinations given as of early Tuesday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 149, which is 17 more than Monday. There are 29 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two more than Monday.

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.
