PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority reported 389 new confirmed and presumptive coronavirus cases on Thursday, marking a new single-day high for new cases. The last high was precisely a week before, on July 2.

"Today’s case count is the highest total daily case count since the onset of the pandemic," OHA said. "The recent increase in cases is attributed to workplace outbreaks and community spread. Newly diagnosed cases are being interviewed now."

Many of the new cases stemmed from Multnomah, Marion, Washington, and Umatilla counties.

While testing has dramatically expanded in Oregon since the outbreak began, the state has also noted a steadily rising positivity rate among the surge in new cases. There have been a total of 11,188 positive results in the state.

OHA also reported that six more deaths have been attributed to the virus, bringing the state death toll to 230.

The new cases were reported in the following counties: Benton (1), Clackamas (20), Clatsop (1), Columbia (2), Coos (4), Crook (3), Deschutes (5), Hood River (1), Jackson (7), Jefferson (8), Josephine (2), Lake (2), Lane (18), Lincoln (15), Linn (3), Malheur (31), Marion (47), Morrow (12), Multnomah (86), Polk (2), Umatilla (55), Union (4), Wallowa (1), Wasco (5), Washington (46), Yamhill (8).

OHA provided the following details about the latest fatalities:

  • Oregon’s 225th COVID-19 death is a 63-year-old woman in Crook County who became symptomatic on July 1 after close contact with a confirmed case and died on July 8, at her residence. She had no underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 226th COVID-19 death is an 83-year-old man in Umatilla County who tested positive on July 4 and died on July 3. The place of death is being confirmed. He had underlying conditions.
  • Oregon’s 227th COVID-19 death is a 71-year-old man in Marion County who tested positive on June 26 and died on July 7, at his residence. He had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 228th COVID-19 death is a 75-year-old woman in Clackamas County who tested positive on June 10 and died on July 2 at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. She had underlying medical conditions.
  • Oregon’s 229th COVID-19 death is a 78-year-old woman in Clackamas County who died on June 18 at her residence. More details are pending.
  • Oregon’s 230th COVID-19 death is a 90-year-old man in Marion County who tested positive on May 9 and died on June 1, at his home. He had underlying conditions.

According to the latest OHA weekly report, the recent surge in new cases has been accompanied by an increase in hospitalizations, but with a marked difference from the height of cases in as the state went into shutdown.

"Hospitalizations increased for the fifth consecutive week but remained below earlier peaks in March and April because younger
people who have lower risk of hospitalization and death predominate among recent cases," the agency said.
