September, second deadliest month of the pandemic – .


Oregon health officials on Thursday announced 1,896 new cases of the coronavirus and 20 deaths – the last day of a month that is now the second deadliest since the start of the pandemic.

The death toll in September, likely to rise as new data comes to light, now stands at 498, about two dozen more than in January. December remains the worst month of the pandemic, with 603 deaths.

These September deaths largely include unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated people. But they also include a share of people who were fully vaccinated and died after infection with COVID-19.

So-called breakthrough deaths are becoming increasingly common as a proportion of all deaths, according to summary data from the Oregon Health Authority released Thursday. To date, 218 fully vaccinated people have died after contracting COVID-19 infection. On average, they are around 80 years old.

Just over 23% of the 405 deaths from COVID-19 in August were among those fully vaccinated, up from 18.8% in July and 10.1% in June. The increase could be caused at least in part by the decline in immunity among the elderly, particularly long-term care residents who were vaccinated early, the agency said.

The state said about five times as many unvaccinated people got sick with COVID-19 than vaccinated people.

“Cases of COVID-19 are much more common in unvaccinated people,” the health authority said.
