Oregon ties record with 54 reported coronavirus deaths – OregonLive

By

Jan 13, 2021

The Oregon Health Authority on Tuesday reported 1,203 new coronavirus cases and 54 deaths, equaling the highest fatality count announced on a single day since the start of the pandemic.

Thirty-two of those deaths occurred in 2020, state officials said late Tuesday.

December was already Oregon’s deadliest month of the pandemic, accounting for at least 483 deaths – nearly equal to all deaths from March, April, May, June, July and August combined. December’s tally appears poised to surpass that when officials disclose dates for the newest deaths announced Tuesday.

State officials said it took a while to identify some of the deaths reported Tuesday because of a lengthy confirmation process.

“The counting of deaths from death certificates may take time to process because they are determined by physicians and then sent to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for further review before the cause of death is ultimately determined,” officials wrote in a news release. “Once this information is confirmed, the information is reported back with a final cause of death to states. This lagging indicator is now being captured today.”

State officials are not optimistic Oregon’s death count will improve immediately. Despite vaccination efforts, it’s still expected to take several months to inoculate the most vulnerable, including those living in congregate care, where more than half of all Oregonians with COVID-19 have died.

Tuesday’s death toll equals the 54 previously announced by the Oregon Health Authority on Dec. 15, although one of those deaths was later removed from the state’s official tally.

Among the latest deaths reported Tuesday were two people in their 30s and two centenarians.

Where the new cases are by county: Baker (8), Benton (16), Clackamas (98), Clatsop (11), Columbia (1), Coos (9), Crook (19), Curry (8), Deschutes (56), Douglas (21), Gilliam (1), Harney (3), Hood River (11), Jackson (61), Jefferson (19), Josephine (39), Klamath (46), Lake (3), Lane (89), Lincoln (6), Linn (24), Malheur (32), Marion (97), Morrow (4), Multnomah (265), Polk (10), Tillamook (2), Umatilla (53), Union (5), Wasco, (10), Washington (155) and Yamhill (21).
