PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority on Thursday reported the highest daily number of new coronavirus cases and related deaths since the pandemic first reached Oregon.

The agency marked 1,225 new confirmed and presumptive cases, bringing the state total to 60,873. The number of hospitalized coronavirus patients increased to 414, eight more than the record-high reported just a day prior. 

OHA also reported 20 more deaths, raising the state's death toll to 808.

“We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost a loved one to COVID-19,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. "Sadly, we have also surpassed our 800th COVID-19 death today, less than three weeks after marking the 700th death. These are family, friends, neighbors and we note their deaths with sadness and a renewed determination to suppress the spread of the virus.

“I have heard frequently from those who have refused to believe this pandemic is serious if we aren’t seeing hospitalizations and deaths. Those hospitalizations and deaths are here, and are only likely to go up. Please take this seriously, and do what you can to slow the spread: wash your hands, wear a mask, and limit the number of people you come in close contact with.”

The staggering seven deaths reported in Jackson County on Thursday contributed significantly to the unprecedented count — brought on, at least in part, by multiple outbreaks at long-term care facilities.

OHA gave the following information about the latest fatalities:
