PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Twenty-four more people with COVID-19 have died in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 3,815, the Oregon Health Authority said Friday.

OHA reported 1,686 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID, bringing the state total to 331,709.

The latest COVID modeling report from OHA projects a decrease in daily cases and hospitalizations between Oct. 6 and Oct. 19. Despite declines in COVID hospitalizations across Oregon, OHA said bed occupancy levels remain higher than during previous surges.

There were 792 hospitalizations across Oregon, which was a decrease of 24 from the previous day, and 223 patients in ICU beds, which was a decrease of eight. There were 49 available adult ICU beds out of 696 total (7% availability) and 320 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,234 (8% availability). Region 2 — Benton, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties — had no adult ICU beds available on Friday.

OHA reported that 11,910 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Sept. 30. The seven-day running average is now 7,664 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,995,497 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 1,906,569 doses of Moderna and 215,764 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
