(Update with list of deaths, 2 in C.O.; weekly report shows surge in deaths)

89 new cases in deschutes County, 19 in Crook County, 23 in Jefferson County

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are 41 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, two in Central Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 1,708, the Oregon Health Authority reported Wednesday.

OHA also reported 1,346 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, bringing the state total to 129,109.

The deaths added Wednesday included Crook County’s 10th, a 77-year-old woman who died last Friday at her home and Jefferson County’s 25th, a 69-year-old woman who died Sunday at St. Charles Bend. Both had underlying conditions.

They also included a 19-year-old man in Marion County who had underlying conditions and a 27-year in Washington County who died in late November; the presence of underlying conditions in that death is being confirmed.

Note: A human error resulted in the loss of a small number of reports submitted through the online portal from 6:45am to 8:30am on Wednesday.

OHA does not know what types of reports were lost (lab reports, REALD reports, or MIS-C reports). Based on recent reporting volume, we estimate that these results were likely negative or pending lab results and that no more than 20 would have been received during the time of the error. We are reaching to all parties who recently submitted reports through the online portal to request that anyone who submitted from 6:45am to 8:30am on Jan. 13.to resubmit those results.

OHA will continue to review and assess the process.

Vaccinations in Oregon

On Wednesday, 14,722 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 9,071 vaccine doses were administered on Tuesday and 5,651 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Tuesday.

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 129,782 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. All vaccinations were administered by Oregon hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical service (EMS) agencies, urgent care facilities and Local Public Health Authorities (LPHAs).

To date, 321,225 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

St. Charles Health System reported having given 4,898 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations as of early Wednesday.

OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 434, which is 31 more than Tuesday. There are 103 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 10 more than Tuesday.

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.

St. Charles Bend reported 45 COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Wednesday, nine of whom were in the ICU, six on ventilators.

Weekly COVID-19 cases increase, deaths surge

OHA’s COVID-19 Weekly Report was released Wednesday and showed sharp increases in daily cases and positive tests.

OHA reported 8,150 new daily cases during the week of Monday, Jan. 4 through Sunday, Jan. 10, a 3% increase over the previous week.

There were 357 persons hospitalized for COVID-19.

COVID-19 related deaths surged to 177, up from 73 the previous week.

There were 113,648 tests for COVID-19 for the week of Jan. 3 through Jan. 9. The percentage of positive tests increased to 8.2%.

People age 20 to 49 have accounted for 55% of COVID-19 cases, while people 70 and older have accounted for 77% of deaths associated with the virus.

Wednesday’s COVID-19 outbreak report shows 202 active COVID-19 outbreaks in senior living communities and congregate living settings, with three or more confirmed cases or one or more COVID-19 related deaths.

Cases and deaths

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Wednesday are in the following counties: Baker (16), Benton (29), Clackamas (105), Clatsop (10), Columbia (13), Coos (9), Crook (19), Deschutes (89), Douglas (25), Gilliam (1), Grant (8), Harney (2), Hood River (6), Jackson (58), Jefferson (23), Josephine (64), Klamath (32), Lake (2), Lane (98), Lincoln (3), Linn (50), Malheur (24), Marion (97), Morrow (9), Multnomah (307), Polk (28), Tillamook (11), Umatilla (52), Union (7), Wasco (13), Washington (110) and Yamhill (26).

“Every death from COVID-19 is a loss for friends and families,” said Dr. Bukhosi Dube, senior health advisor with the Oregon Health Authority’s Public Health Division. “Today’s reported death of a 19-year-old who had underlying conditions shows, again, that because a person may be younger than the most at-risk groups, they may still suffer life-threatening consequences from the virus.”

While older people are at higher risk of having more severe outcomes, including hospitalizations and death, COVID-19 has led to hospitalizations of persons under the age of 40. State data show that about 5% of patients who have been hospitalized for their illness were between the ages of 10 to 39 years old. In Oregon, this is the fourth COVID-19-related death in individuals younger than 30 since the beginning of the pandemic.

As of Jan. 13, 103 persons between the ages of 10 and 19 have been hospitalized with COVID-19 in Oregon.
