PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon public health officials have identified 58 new cases of the new coronavirus in the state as of 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 8, as well as five more deaths attributed to the virus.

The latest death brings the state total up to 38.

The Oregon Health Authority said that there are now a total of 1,239 people in the state who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through a positive test.

OHA is reporting 58 total new cases in the following counties: Clackamas (6), Columbia (1), Deschutes (1), Hood River (1), Lane (1), Linn (1), Marion (3), Morrow (1), Multnomah (28), Wallowa (2), and Washington (13).

Samples for 23,325 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 324 Oregonians have been hospitalized, and just over 80 have been put on a ventilator.

State numbers still vary widely. While the state lists only 156 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized, that number rises to 440 when suspected COVID-19 patients are included — indicating that many still have not received results from a completed test.


SPECIAL SECTION: Coronavirus Watch


OHA gave the following information about each of the new fatalities in the state:

  • Oregon’s 34th COVID-19 death is an 88-year-old woman in Multnomah County, who tested positive on March 28 and died on April 6 at OHSU Hospital. She had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 35th COVID-19 death is a 77-year-old man in Multnomah County, who tested positive on March 27 and died April 1 at his residence. He had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 36th COVID-19 death is a 75-year-old woman in Multnomah County, who tested positive on April 6 and died April 7 at Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center. She had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 37th COVID-19 death is a 94-year-old man in Yamhill County, who tested positive on March 25 and died April 7 at Providence Newberg Medical Center. He had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 38th COVID-19 death is a 90-year-old man in Yamhill County, who tested positive on March 25 and died April 7 at Providence Newberg Medical Center. He 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.
