PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon public health officials have identified 33 new cases of the new coronavirus in the state as of 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 15, as well as three more deaths attributed to the virus.

The latest deaths bring the state total up to 58.

The Oregon Health Authority said that there are now a total of 1,663 people in the state who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through a positive test.

OHA reported new cases in the following counties: Benton (1), Clackamas (7), Columbia (3), Douglas (1), Lane (2), Linn (1), Marin (5), Multnomah (10), Umatilla (1), and Washington (2).

"Three cases previously reported in Washington County were reclassified during routine data reconciliation. Two of the cases were removed and one was transferred to Washington state after residency was confirmed. These modifications reduce the cumulative statewide total by three," the agency said on Wednesday.

Samples for 31,688 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 401 Oregonians have been hospitalized.

State numbers still vary widely. While the state lists only 140 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized, that number rises to 305 when suspected COVID-19 patients are included — indicating that many still have not received results from a completed test.

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

  • Oregon’s 56th COVID-19 death is an 82-year-old man in Marion County, who tested positive on April 3 and died on April 10 at Santiam Hospital. He had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 57th COVID-19 death is an 84-year-old woman in Multnomah County, who tested positive on March 30 and died on April 12 at Adventist Medical Center. She had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 58th COVID-19 death is a 92-year-old woman in Multnomah County, who tested positive on April 9 and died on April 12 at her residence. She had underlying medical conditions.

Oregon releases weekly epidemiological report with latest statewide data

Oregon Health Authority released a second weekly report on Tuesday providing an analysis about COVID-19 cases in Oregon.

"These data represent a snapot of COVID-19 risk factors, clinical and demographic characteristics and include data on cases with pending investigations," OHA said. "The data shown in this report comes from Orpheus, which is an electronic disease surveillance system for reportable diseases for the state of Oregon."

Tuesday's report included cases and deaths in long-term care facilities, with a breakdown of facility-level data in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities with three or more cases. No facilities in southern Oregon were listed on the report.
