New COVID-19 Cases Increased 53-Percent Over Last Week

(Portland, OR) -- New COVID-19 cases in Oregon increased 53-percent over the last week. The Oregon Health Authority says hospitalizations were also up, but deaths were down. Both hospitalizations and deaths are trailing factors, so they will likely increase as cases rise. The number of positive COVID-19 tests increased from four-point-two to five-percent. Case rates have been higher in counties with lower COVID-19 vaccination rates.
