PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon public health officials have identified 31 new cases of the new coronavirus in the state as of 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 28.

The state also reported that seven more deaths have occurred due to COVID-19. At present, 99 deaths have been attributed to the virus.

The Oregon Health Authority said that there are now a total of 2,385 people in the state who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through a positive test. 49,857 have tested negative for the virus.

OHA reported new cases in the following counties: Clackamas (1), Coos (1), Harney (1), Klamath (1), Linn (2), Marion (9), Morrow (1), Multnomah (13), Umatilla (1), Wasco (1), Yamhill (1).

In a weekly report, OHA offered a new total of recovered cases in the state. Of 2,253 surviving cases at the time of the report, 860 (38.2 percent) were considered recovered, and 785 (34.8 percent) were not yet recovered. 607 cases (26.9 percent) have yet to be assessed by the agency.

"A person is considered recovered once they are free of fever (without the use of fever-reducing medication), cough, shortness of breath, and diarrhea for 72 hours," OHA said. "If they are not yet recovered, public health staff will call back weekly until the person is recovered. COVID-19 cases without symptoms are considered recovered 7 days after the last positive test."

The median recovery time for cases who had symptoms was 15 days, while the median recovery time for those who were hospitalized was 19 days.

Though Oregon is now reporting recovered cases by county, the lower numbers than those reported by local southern Oregon counties suggests that the report is somewhat dated compared to what counties are now offering on their own.

OHA weekly report provides information on 'underlying medical conditions' for COVID-19 deaths

In a weekly report issued on Tuesday, the Oregon Health Authority for the first time released some of the kinds of underlying conditions found in people who have died from COVID-19. The vast majority — if not all — of Oregon's deaths have had some sort of pre-existing condition.

The most common underlying conditions included diabetes, lung disease, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, and neurological or neurodevelopmental disorders. More than half (58.9 percent) had cardiovascular disease. A relatively small percentage were obese, had liver disease, or were current smokers — although 24.7 percent were former smokers.

"There have been a total of 92 deaths among COVID-19 cases. We have obtained comorbidity data for 73 of the deaths from case interview or medical records review," OHA wrote in the report.
