Server error delays COVID tests; OHA reports just 111 new cases, 1 death

Coronavirus

Monday's data will be higher than normal due to backlog

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Health Authority reported just 111 new COVID-19 cases and 1 death tied to the virus Sunday because many tests have yet to be processed.

A server error prevented “a large number of electronic lab results” from being logged, and as a result, Sunday’s “case ELR totals are lower than usual,” according to OHA. The backlog will also mean Monday’s data will be higher than usual.

The 111 new confirmed/presumptive cases brought the state total to 152,818; the death toll rose to 2,155.

Sunday’s lone death was an 84-year-old Clackamas County man who had underlying medical conditions.
