PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon public health officials have identified 49 new cases of the new coronavirus in the state as of 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 7, as well as four more deaths attributed to the virus.

The latest death brings the state total up to 33.

The Oregon Health Authority said that there are now a total of 1,181 people in the state who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through a positive test.

OHA is reporting 64 total new cases in the following counties: Clackamas (7), Clatsop (1), Deschutes (4), Klamath (1), Lane (1), Linn (1), Marion (6), Multnomah (15), Polk (2), Washington (11).

Samples for 21,826 people have tested negative for COVID-19 in the state so far.

Examples of people who have recovered fully after testing positive for the coronavirus have been reported only sporadically by local health officials thus far, and the state has yet to report a count of a total across the state.

OHA has a partial, but incomplete count of how many people in the state have been hospitalized from the virus. According to that data, at least 329 Oregonians have been hospitalized, and just over 80 have been put on a ventilator.

The same day, a 98-year-old woman in Marion County, who tested positive on April 1, died at her home. She also had underlying medical conditions.

A 71-year-old woman in Marion County, who tested positive on March 30, died April 2 in her home. She too had underlying medical conditions.

New dashboard to help visualize COVID-19 data in Oregon

On Monday, OHA unveiled a new dashboard "to help visualize COVID-19 data and trends in Oregon." The two graphs show Oregon’s epidemiological curve and the number of Oregonians who have been tested for COVID-19.

"These data are provisional. Our team of epidemiologists continues to review and verify data, so our reported numbers will change. As we get more information, we update the data from previous days," the agency said.
