PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon public health officials have identified 57 new cases of the new coronavirus in the state as of 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 22. Earlier this week, the state also released its first estimate for the number of recovered cases.

The Oregon Health Authority said that there are now a total of 2,059 people in the state who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through a positive test. At present, 78 deaths have been attributed to the virus.

OHA reported new cases in the following counties: Clackamas (10), Coos (1), Deschutes (2), Jefferson (1), Linn (1), Marion (7), Multnomah (24), Washington (10) and Yamhill (1).

In a weekly report released on Tuesday, the Oregon Health Authority said that at least 595 of state's surviving cases were considered recovered from the virus. At the time the report was compiled, there were 1,853 total surviving cases. 682 were considered not yet recovered, while 576 were still pending.

"Recovery Oregon is assessing recovery of COVID-19 cases by calling each case to determine if they have recovered and the date of recovery," OHA said. "A person is considered recovered once they are free of fever (without the use of fever-reducing medication), cough, and shortness of breath for 72 hours. 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 all cases with symptoms was 14 days, while the median recovery time for hospitalized cases was 16 days.

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 488 Oregonians have been hospitalized since the outbreak began, about 24 percent of the total cases.

State numbers still vary widely. While the state lists only 124 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized, that number rises to 302 when suspected COVID-19 patients are included — indicating that many still have not received results from a completed test. Of the confirmed patients, 24 are on ventilators.

OHA: Modeling report shows 'physical distancing measures are working'

On Friday, OHA released an update to its epidemic modeling report, intended to help Oregon’s leaders understand the progression and the projections for the COVID-19 outbreak.

"Today’s modeling update tells us that statewide mitigation efforts are keeping the caseload and hospitalizations well below the numbers we would have seen absent our efforts as a state," said state epidemiologist Dean Sidelinger, MD. "We are encouraged by the continued success of our mitigation efforts, which are allowing us to begin planning for suppression strategies for when the statewide measure can begin to be lifted."
