PORTLAND, Ore. — Public health officials on Friday reported nine more deaths attributed to coronavirus, the highest daily count in Oregon since the pandemic began. There are now 282 COVID-19 deaths in the state.

The Oregon Health Authority also reported 396 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of Friday morning, bringing the state total to 16,104.

The new cases are in the following counties: Baker (1), Clackamas (25), Columbia (1), Crook (1), Curry (2), Deschutes (16), Douglas (6), Gilliam (1), Hood River (4), Jackson (5), Jefferson (22), Josephine (1), Klamath (2), Lane (16), Linn (7), Malheur (18), Marion (58), Multnomah (71), Polk (6), Umatilla (59), Wasco (1), Washington (54), and Yamhill (8).

OHA gave the following information about the nine fatalities:

  • Oregon’s 274th COVID-19 death is a 61-year-old woman in Multnomah County who died July 18 in her residence. The death certificate listed COVID-19 disease, or SARS-CoV-2, as a cause of death, or as a significant condition that contributed to her death.
