PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Health Authority did not report any new deaths in the state Sunday, but said there were 292 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases.

OHA says these cases are current as of 12:01 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021.

Sunday marks the one-year anniversary since Oregon’s first confirmed COVID-19 case. In the last year, there have been a total of 155,597 cases confirmed and presumptive cases in the state.

OHA also issued an update on vaccinations and said Oregon has now administered 973,022 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines.

Providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to report their vaccinations slowly, OHA said.
