COVID-19 death toll exceeds 5,000 – .


The death toll from COVID-19 in Oregon now officially exceeds 5,000, with 103 deaths reported on Monday, putting the state past the unenviable milestone.

At least 5,017 Oregonians have died after contracting COVID-19, state data shows. More than a third of them died in the delta wave that arrived in July, despite the wide availability of safe and effective vaccines.

Oregon has the sixth-lowest COVID-19 death rate in the United States, with 116 deaths per 100,000 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mississippi, with 343 deaths per 100,000 population, has recorded the highest COVID-19 death rate in the country.

While more people will be Oregonians due to COVID-19, the current trends in cases, hospitalizations and deaths are on the decline, as they have been more or less consistently since the pandemic peak in September.

The death toll announced by health officials on Monday almost certainly includes deaths that are part of a backlog of unreported deaths that occurred earlier in the year. The state also announced 1,753 new cases identified since Friday.

Where new cases are by county: Baker (4), Benton (29), Clackamas (204), Clatsop (12), Columbia (35), Coos (29), Crook (10), Curry (4), Deschutes (190), Douglas (58), Harney (6), Hood River (9), Jackson (105), Jefferson (17), Joséphine (38), Klamath (19), Lake (2), Lane (145), Lincoln (53), Linn (99) , Malheur (2), Marion (123), Morrow (10), Multnomah (288), Polk (31), Tillamook (7), Umatilla (16), Union (4), Wallowa (1), Wasco (1) , Washington (168), Wheeler (1) et Yamhill (33).

Who is dead: State health officials did not immediately provide detailed information on those who died. This post will be updated when they do.

Hospitalizations: 395 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 are hospitalized, eight fewer than Sunday. That includes 86 people in intensive care, down five from Sunday.

Vaccines: 15,011 people have been reported newly vaccinated since Friday.

From the beginning : Oregon has reported 385,790 confirmed or suspected infections and 5,017 deaths, among the lowest per capita numbers in the country. To date, the state has reported 5,945,220 vaccine doses administered, fully immunizing 2,645,458 people and partially immunizing 272,159 people.
