PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Oregon’s COVID-19 death toll has now surpassed 3,000.

The Oregon Health Authority reported 19 new COVID-related deaths on Friday, raising the state’s death toll to 3,012.

“Today, we mark another sad milestone in the pandemic: Our 3,000th COVID-19 related death,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. “We grieve for every person lost to the virus. I offer my deepest sympathies to every family who has mourned a parent, sibling or child who has died from the disease. Every death serves as a sobering reminder of the devastating personal impact COVID-19 has on all of us. Our sadness is deepened by the realization that these deaths are increasingly preventable. We know that the available vaccines provide a reliable protective shield against serious illness and death from COVID-19. These vaccines are saving lives every day and I urge every Oregonian who has not yet received the vaccine to please make a plan vaccinated.”

The OHA reported 2,187 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID on Friday. Oregon has now logged 252,977 cases to date.

There were 866 people with COVID in Oregon hospitals, which was an increase of 21 from the previous day, and 241 patients in ICU beds, which was an increase of 15. The OHA said there are 39 adult ICU beds left out of 670 total in the state and 363 adult non-ICU beds remaining out of 4,222.

The OHA reported 9,559 new doses of COVID vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Friday. Oregon has now administered 2,746,350 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,820,789 first and second doses of Moderna and 192,535 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
