Oregon reports 436 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 3 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are three new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,686, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 436 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 202,675.

Information from today’s media briefing

This afternoon, Governor Kate Brown, OHA Director Patrick Allen and Dr. Dean Sidelinger provided an update on Oregon’s ongoing COVID-19 response. Close to six months into Oregon’s COVID-19 vaccination drive and almost six weeks since vaccine eligibility was expanded to all adults, a stark picture has emerged. There are two pandemics in Oregon: one is coming to an end among people who are vaccinated. The other is a pandemic raging as fiercely as ever among people who are unvaccinated.

Watch more about that here, find the slides here and read the press conference talking points here.

Vaccinations in Oregon

Today, OHA reported that 25,237 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry.

Of this total, 9,587 doses were administered on June 3 and 15,650 were administered prior to June 3.

The seven-day running average is now 17,551 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,246,996 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,625,362 first and second doses of Moderna and 147,285 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today, 1,893,574 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,265,143 people who have had at least one dose.

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, 2,830,725 doses of Pfizer, 2,160,320 doses of Moderna and 298,600 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 219, which is nine fewer than yesterday. There are 57 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six fewer than yesterday.

The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed-days in the most recent seven days is 1,668, which is a 9.1% decrease from the previous seven days. The peak daily number of beds occupied by COVID-19 positive patients in the most recent seven days is 257.

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.
