PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported 2,895 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases and 20 additional deaths in its daily report on Monday. The case and death count are a combined total from Oct. 8-10.

The newly reported deaths bring the state's death toll to 4,002 reported COVID-19 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. The number of reported infections has risen to 343,993.

“Today, Oregon has now recorded more than 4,000 deaths,” Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen said in a press release. “That’s two short months since we last paused to mark the painful milestone of 3,000 COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon. Our condolences go out to everyone who has lost a loved one, a family member, a friend or a neighbor. These two milestones tell the story of how swiftly and severely the Delta variant has moved through our communities.

“This is even more heartbreaking because many of these deaths are preventable. COVID-19 vaccines are widely available throughout Oregon, and the vaccines are our best protection against serious illness and death from this virus. My message to Oregonians today is simple: The Delta variant has changed everything. Please, get vaccinated as soon as you can.”

OHA reported 1,324 cases on Oct. 8, 840 on Oct. 9 and 731 on Oct. 10.

Hospitalizations

There are 644 people hospitalized with COVID-19 across the state, which is five fewer than was reported on Sunday. There are 170 people in intensive care units, which is one more than was reported on Sunday. 

There are 44 available adult ICU beds out of 675 total (7% availability) and 334 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,106 (8% availability).

Officials ask that if you are looking to be tested for COVID-19 that you do not go to hospitals because they are under significant strain due to the number of patients. If you're looking for a test you can find one here.

Vaccinations 

The seven-day running average is now 10,849 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 3,113,386 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 1,922,372 doses of Moderna and 220,670 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of today, 2,771,530 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,554,094 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.
