Oregon reports 2,293 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 12 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 12 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 4,295, Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported 2,293 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 359,733.

New quarterly report update sheds light on inequities experienced by racial and ethnic groups

OHA is publishing a new quarterly report on age-adjusted rate ratios of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths by race and ethnicity over time. Age adjustment is a method used to quantify inequities among different racial and ethnic groups. When adjusted for age, people from Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian, Latinx, Black and American Indian/Alaska Native communities have experienced disproportionate rates of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and death. These inequities were acutely pronounced earlier in the pandemic and have decreased over the course of the pandemic. However, there continues to be inequities of COVID-19 cases, deaths, and hospitalizations for communities of color and tribal communities.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 571, which is 41 more than yesterday. There are 123 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one fewer than yesterday.

There are 58 available adult ICU beds out of 682 total (9% availability) and 273 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,130 (7% availability).

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.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.

Oregon’s 2,768th and 2,518th COVID-19 related deaths, reported on June 29 and May 7 respectively, were identified to be the same person. Because of this update, we are renumbering our reports to start with 4,284 today.

Due to an unexpected issue with the server that hosts Opera, the COVID-19 case database, Opera was down from 6 p.m. on Oct. 22 through 9 p.m. on Oct. 23. Case counts from Oct. 22 and Oct. 23 are lower than expected. We may see an increase in the total number of cases reported tomorrow, as local public health authorities work through a backlog of cases today.
