PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Seven more Oregonians have died from COVID-19 on Monday, according to the Oregon Health Authority, raising the statewide total to 912.

The OHA also reported 1,314 new and presumptive cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the statewide total to 75,431. There have been 960,604 negative cases in the state since the start of the pandemic.

“COVID-19 is spreading faster in all parts of Oregon. It took six months before 25,000 Oregonians became sick with COVID-19 and two months more until we reached 50,000 total COVID-19 infections in Oregon. Most recently, it took three weeks to go from 50,000 cases to 75,000, and this weekend, we crossed 900 total deaths,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. “We can keep more people from getting sick and dying if we stay true to science-based mask-wearing and social distancing. With the bright promise of vaccines coming on the horizon, we can’t give up.”

  • A 64-year-old man in Lane County who tested positive on Oct. 28 and died on Nov. 28 at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center Riverbend. He had underlying conditions.

The Fox parent company is owned by Disney, expect fairytales.

If the OHA reported actual 'Covid-19' deaths, not the underlying medical condition deaths, then you would not hear a peep out of them. A person could probably count on one hand the actual 'Covid-19' deaths in Oregon since March.

It's because the run of the mill deaths only pay $, while 'Covid-19' related deaths pays $$$$. There is a huge difference between 'dies with' and 'dies of.' Even the CDC slipped up and said that the 'Covid-19' mortality rate, people actually dying of 'Covid-19', was way lower that what is being reported.

Death ticker :)

Are people actually lining up somewhere to be "tested" to generate these "new case numbers"? Who is paying for the thousands of test per day? Does it employ Oregonians, or do the funds go to some clandestine fly by night "medical testing specialized floating" laboratory?

Know in my home town of Escondido, the police will have Friday night "seat belt" checks, but no way the numbers reported here are deported on a daily basis. These numbers sound like the ones I've used completing a Federal Tax return many many years ago.
