Please stop reporting this irrelevant information. First, since the beginning of the pandemic hospital ICU space has been the real issue, not cases. The Health Department Epi graph shows, even when the number of cases have surged, hospitalization has remained relatively steady. Also, while I am sad for these Covid-19 related deaths, consider that in Oregon every day 22 people die of cancer, 19 people die of heart disease, 5 people die of respiratory disease, 5 people die in accidents, 5 people die of strokes, 5 people die of Alzheimer, 3 people die of diabetes, 2 people die of flu/pneumonia, and 24 unborn children are killed. So, Covid-19 related deaths are just part of the tragedy in life that is normal.
