Oregon reports 2,041 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 25 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 25 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 5,268, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

OHA reported 2,041 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 396,501.

The 25 new deaths and 2,041 new cases reported today include data recorded by counties for the three-day period between Dec. 3 and Dec. 5.

The Dec. 2 case counts for Lane County were erroneously high due to a reporting error. This error has been corrected, and the case count for Lane County for Dec. 2 has been revised to 95 cases.

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 418, which is 23 more than yesterday. There are 115 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 12 more than yesterday.

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. 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.
