MEDFORD, Ore-- On Sunday, Oregon surpassed a Covid-19 milestone that no one wanted to reach. After the Oregon Health Authority reported three new deaths today, Oregon officially surpassed 2,500 lives lost to coronavirus.

It been a little more than a year since the coronavirus first made its way into Oregon. In that time, businesses have been shut down multiple times, new Covid-19 cases have risen and fallen and hospitalizations continue to fluctuate.

On Sunday, the Oregon Health Authority also reported 756 new confirmed and presumptive cases of cornoavirus.

Currently Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations, overall, are on the rise in Oregon as the state reported its sixth day last week of more than 700 cases reported in a single day.

Hospitalizations also rose on Sunday to 345 people in hospital beds with Covid-19. That's a 14 person increase compared to Saturday when hospitalizations were at 331.

On Friday, Governor Kate Brown put several Oregon counties back into 'Extreme Risk' restrictions that had been expereicning an alarming amout of new cases over the last few weeks. Governor Brown says that her office and the Oregon Health Authority will continue to monitor case positivity rates in counties that have been put under extreme restrictions and will consider putting those counties back into 'High Risk' restrictions if their case positivity rates decrease or if the state's hospitalizations go below the 300 mark. 

However, vaccinations are still increasing as today, OHA reported that 22,443 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 19,147 doses were administered on May 1 and 3,296 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on May 1.

The seven-day running average is now at 33,710 doses per day.
