Oregon reports 20 more COVID-19 related deaths, 2 from Deschutes County; 1,811 new cases

New Model Shows Sustained Delay in Cases, Hospitalizations

PORTLAND, Oregon (KTVZ) — There are 20 new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, including two from Deschutes County, bringing the state’s death toll to 4,750, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

OHA also reported 1,811 new confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 378,174.

The 1,811 new cases reported today include data recorded by counties for the two-day period between Wednesday, November 10 and Thursday, November 11.

Latest COVID-19 model shows continued slowdown in cases, hospitalizations

Oregon Health & Science University now provides the COVID-19 prediction model.

The latest report predicts a continued overall decline in cases and hospitalizations for the remainder of this year. The number of hospital admissions among children remained stable and the number of ICU admissions for COVID-19-related illnesses increased slightly over the past week.

The model makes clear that adhering to wearing masks and following other public health protocols is important in preventing infection and thus reducing infection and hospitalizations, OHA said.

OHA publishes new breakthrough report on COVID-19 vaccine

OHA’s most recent update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released Friday, found that 71% of the 6,776 reported cases of COVID-19 between October 31 and November 6 occurred in unvaccinated people.

There were 1,962 breakthrough cases, accounting for 29% of all cases.

The average age of the breakthrough cases in that period was 45 years. Forty breakthrough cases involved residents of care institutions, senior citizens’ communities or other community care settings. There were 76 cases in people ages 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 39,686 cases of COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough in Oregon. The mean age of all cases is 48. Breakthrough cases have been reported in all 36 provinces.

Cases of COVID-19 are much more common in unvaccinated people. The report shows that the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people is four times higher than in vaccinated people.

To date, 4.4% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 1.1% have died. The average age of vaccinated people who died was 80 years.

Vaccination remains the most effective means of reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency room for COVID-19 testing unless you need emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under a lot of pressure. You will find a test here.

If you have a medical condition that does not require emergency care, talk to your provider. An emergency center can also help you get the care you need and will save emergency rooms from adding extra strain.
