COVID-19

COVID-19 has claimed five more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 109, the Oregon Health Authority reported 8 a.m. Saturday.

Oregon Health Authority reported 57 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the state total to 2,635. The new COVID-19 cases reported are in the following counties: Clackamas (2), Deschutes (2), Hood River (1), Jefferson (3), Lane (4), Malheur (2), Marion (15), Morrow (1), Multnomah (14), Umatilla (4), Washington (9).

Note: During routine data reconciliation, a case originally reported as a Polk County case was later determined not to be a case. It was subtracted from Friday’s state total, and the total number of cases in Polk County was reduced by one to reflect this change.

To see more case and county level data, please visit the Oregon Health Authority website, which OHA updates once a day: www.healthoregon.org/coronavirus.

  1. I read the obits every day from cities I have lived. People die in every town from all sorts of illnesses. This virus is put on every death certificate. It does not mean they died from it. FAKE to shock Americans. More money for the hospitals if it is listed and also for the chemical companies. Laura Ingram show had a Physician who explained it. He said many doctors list it that way but he doesn’t. Wake up America. Our cities have not closed down for colds or the flu. We support all businesses shut down and people who are struggling.

  2. Citizen Concerned, I think you meant to refer to Laura Ingraham. You left out the important detail that the physician she interviewed is also a Republican state senator. He says what he needs to say to appeal to his science-averse base. Do your research and stop trying to muddy the waters with your uninformed opinion.

  3. Hey Geronimo,
    You are a political hack and dumber than a bag of hammers. If you studied the data published by Oregon Health and the CDC , it clearly shows that your muddy water is pretty darn clear. WAKE UP FOOL. Learn to read and draw your own conclusions. Oh I’m sorry, you can’t because you swallowed the coolaid and you are one of those blind democrats. Turn to God and restore your sight after you beg for forgiveness.
