This makes not much sense: A 74-year-old man in Multnomah County who tested positive on June 24 and died on Nov. 4 in his home. He had underlying conditions. So, he tests positive over 4 months ago, Is at home. Was he isolated all this time? Surely he should have died sooner if he was dying of Covid? Shoot, he could have tested positive 4 months ago, tripped and broke his neck and would he be listed as a Covid Death? This seems... strange.

Thinking Person

Since all these deaths are deaths over the past 3-4 weeks seems OHA saved up a bunch to report them right before the holiday. So transparent.

'OHA reports new single-day high COVID-19 death count' False headlines. Underlying medical conditions yes. 'Covid-19' no.

Worst PDX Mayor Ever

Well if Trump is to blame for the national covid deaths, then Gov. Gladys Kravitz must be responsible for all of the ones here in Oregon. Why doesn't she already have a vaccine available? Why is she not doing a better job of protecting the elderly, because 99% of those who are dying, are 70+, and most of those are in their 80s and 90s. Hey, maybe she could just talk to her buddy, award winning Governor Andrew Cuomo. Surely he could share with her how he's kept the death toll in New York down to just a shade under 34,000.

Kate the tyrant has already said that she would block distribution of any viable 'Covid-19' vaccine until her panel of 'experts' could study it first.

That was before they claimed Biden won the election !! Now that supposedly he is taking over it will be okay to past out the vaccine to make him look good even if there is no agreement to its effectiveness or side effects. Brown is such a hypocrite !!!!
