Weekly COVID-19 deaths, cases, and hospital admissions are on the rise
OHAs COVID-19 weekly report, published Wednesday, shows an increase in daily cases after six consecutive weeks with falling case numbers and an increase in hospital admissions from the previous week.
“Unfortunately, for the reporting week ending June 13, the progress we’ve seen over the past few weeks has been negatively impacted and the ones most at risk are Oregonians who haven’t been vaccinated,” said Patrick Allen, OHA director. “This comes two weeks after one of the busiest vacation travel times since the pandemic began, and is a reminder that gatherings we enjoy and travel without the protection of vaccinations are still risky.”
“The good news is that the COVID-19 vaccine is available nationwide to all eligible Oregonians. Please make a vaccination schedule that is still the best way to protect you and your loved ones from COVID-19 infection. “
OHA reported 1,780 new daily cases of COVID-19 for the week from Monday June 7 through Sunday June 13. This corresponds to an increase of 3.2% compared to the previous week.
New hospital admissions related to COVID-19 also rose from 112 to 152.
There have been 36 reported deaths related to COVID-19, up from 20 the previous week.
In the week of June 6-12, there were 70,779 tests for COVID-19. The percentage of positive tests was 4%.
38% of hospital admissions related to COVID-19 and 74% of deaths related to COVID-19 are in people aged 70 years and older.
COVID-19 on Wednesday Weekly outbreak report shows 22 active COVID-19 outbreaks in senior housing communities and shared apartments with three or more confirmed cases and one or more COVID-19-related deaths.
Vaccinations in Oregon
OHA reported Wednesday that 17,452 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations have been added to the state vaccination registry. Of these, 10,845 doses were administered on Tuesday the 15th and 6,607 the previous days, but entered in the vaccine registry on Tuesday.
The running average over seven days is now 15,803 doses per day.
Oregon has now administered 2,405,004 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,688,255 first and second doses of Moderna, and 159,090 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
As of Wednesday, 2,335,586 people have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,065,711 have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. The number of adult Oregonians who need vaccinations to reach the 70% threshold is 60,625. You can find a daily countdown on the OHA vaccinations page.
It can take several days to complete the daily cumulative totals as providers have 72 hours to report the doses administered, and technical challenges have left many providers delayed in their reporting. OHA provides technical support to vaccination centers to keep their data entry up to date in the state’s ALERT Vaccination Information System (IIS).
To date, 2,910,285 doses of Pfizer, 2,196,300 doses of Moderna and 299,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been shipped to locations across Oregon.
These dates are preliminary and are subject to change.
OHAs Dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination records, and Oregon’s dashboard was updated today.
