News Release
Oregon reports 833 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 7 new deaths - 05/08/21

Oregon reports 833 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 7 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. There are seven new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,528, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 833 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 190,804.

Vaccinations in Oregon

Today, OHA reported that 63,868 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 27,835 doses were administered on May 7 and 36,033 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on May 7.

The seven-day running average is now 33,318  doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,788,239 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,382,574 first and second doses of Moderna and 105,458 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

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).

To date, 2,082,015 doses of Pfizer, 1,706,980 doses of Moderna and 246,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines 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 today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 329, which is five more than yesterday. There are 84 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six fewer from yesterday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 2,352, which is a 3.7% increase from the previous seven days. The peak daily number of beds occupied by COVID-19 positive patients in the most recent seven days is 351.

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.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.
