New OHA dashboards expected next week; weekend vacation reports cease
PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) – There are three new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, bringing the state’s death toll to 2,781, the Oregon Health Authority reported on Friday.
The OHA also reported 209 new confirmed and suspected COVID-19 cases as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 209,035.
Latest COVID-19 modeling report shows continuing decline in daily cases
The Oregon Health Authority released its latest COVID-19 forecast on Friday, which projects fewer daily hospitalizations and cases through July 20.
According to the model, the effective reproduction rate – the expected number of secondary cases generated by a single case – was estimated at 0.74 until June 16.
If this level of transmission continues over the next three weeks, daily cases would decrease to 40 cases per 100,000 people (about 115 cases per day) and new hospitalizations would drop to seven per day.
If transmission increases by 20%, new cases would drop to 55 cases per 100,000 people (an average of 165 cases per day) and new hospitalizations would drop to 12 per day.
Modeling shows that the estimated immunity due to vaccination is present in four times more people than those who have naturally acquired immunity. Natural immunity is immunity resulting from a previous infection.
A person who has had COVID-19 and recovered may not have the same level of immunity as a person who has not been infected and has been fully vaccinated, and it is not known how long will last. natural immunity.
People who have recovered from the disease have a robust response to the vaccine. The OHA recommends that people get vaccinated to increase their protection against COVID-19.
More than 2.4 million Oregonians have received at least one dose of a safe and highly effective vaccine, and more than 2.1 million have completed a series of vaccines.
OHA to cut data communication on weekends
As of this weekend, OHA will stop distributing the following items on holidays and weekends:
- The press release and the weekend newsletter.
- Weekend social media posts in English and Spanish.
- Weekend dashboard updates and weekend hospital capacity reports.
The OHA will provide weekend summary reports on Mondays or days following a statutory holiday. During weekends, the OHA will continue to have staff available to resolve urgent issues and will have a public information officer on call for emergency media inquiries.
The OHA will continue to report on weekdays on cases, vaccinations, hospitalizations and other data through our daily press release, social media updates, the popular ‘Coronavirus Update’ newsletter and tables. board online.
Upcoming OHA Data Dashboard Updates
On Tuesday, the OHA will update its daily dashboards that have tracked the state’s progress towards meeting its 70% immunization goal for adults 18 and older, as the state moves to the next step in vaccinating Oregonians. With the county risk level framework now lifted, dashboards and web pages that track the state of counties within this framework are being revised to reflect Oregon’s progress in vaccinating Oregonians.
Additional dashboard updates could be reported next week.
Dashboard changes reflecting the lifting of COVID-19 mitigation measures and the end of the State County Risk Level Framework are outlined below.
Vaccinations in Oregon
On Friday, the OHA reported that 7,934 new doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been added to the state’s immunization registry. Of this total, 3,562 doses were administered on Thursday and 4,372 were administered the previous days but were entered in the vaccine registry on Thursday.
The seven-day moving average is now 7,037 doses per day.
Oregon has now administered 2,539,481 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,743,093 first and second doses of Moderna, and 169,504 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
As of Friday, 2,404,609 people had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,194,103 people had completed a series of COVID-19 vaccines.
It may take several days for the cumulative daily totals to be finalized, as providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical issues have caused many providers to be late in reporting. The OHA provided technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).
To date, 2,961,495 doses of Pfizer, 2,238,540 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
These data are preliminary and subject to change.
The OHA dashboards provide regularly updated immunization data, and the Oregon dashboard was updated today.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in Oregon is 132, two less than yesterday. There are 28 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, one more than yesterday.
The total number of COVID-19 positive patient bed days in the past seven days is 999, which is 4.9% down from the previous seven days. The maximum daily number of beds occupied by COVID-19 positive patients in the past seven days is 160.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between reporting times. Figures do not reflect admissions per day or length of hospital stay. Staff limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.
