No new COVID-19 deaths reported, 28 new confirmed cases

OHA reported 28 new confirmed cases and seven presumptive cases on Saturday.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority reported no new deaths in its Saturday update. The death toll remains at 147.

It did report 28 new confirmed cases and seven new presumptive cases bringing the state's total to 3,888. It is unclear how many of the total number of infections are active at this time. This is the 8th time in May that there have been no new COVID-19 related deaths reported.

The new cases were reported in the following counties: 

  • Clackamas (2)
  • Clatsop (1)
  • Crook (3)
  • Deschutes (2)
  • Jackson (1)
  • Jefferson (1)
  • Lane (1)
  • Marion (10)
  • Multnomah (4)
  • Umatilla (2)
  • Wallowa (1)
  • Washington (6)
  • Yamhill (1)

As OHA works to collect data, it offers information to remain transparent about the everchanging COVID-19 situation in Oregon. In its Saturday update, it included some clarifications:

  • Due to data reconciliation, three confirmed cases, one each originally reported in Jackson, Multnomah, and Washington counties, were determined not to be cases. They were subtracted from Friday’s state total, and the total number of cases in each county was reduced to reflect this change.
  • Due to data reconciliation, 10 presumptive cases had updated information and their case status was changed to reflect the new information.
  • Due to data reconciliation, one case originally reported in the 10–19 age group and one case originally reported in the 70–79 age group were determined not to be cases.
