PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – The Oregon Health Authority reported 764 new COVID-19 cases statewide Wednesday.

The additional confirmed and presumptive cases bring Oregon’s total during the pandemic to 120,233. There has been 2,578,086 negative coronavirus tests in Oregon.

The OHA said Wednesday's case count is lower than anticipated because of a server outage that led to an unscheduled database downtime on Tuesday. Wednesday’s Tableau updates wouldn’t include electronic laboratory reporting data from the previous day.

The cases reported were in the following counties:

Baker (11), Benton (8), Clackamas (79), Clatsop (15), Columbia (8), Coos (13), Crook (4), Curry (1), Deschutes (10), Douglas (10), Gilliam (2), Grant (1), Harney (2), Hood River (6), Jackson (44), Jefferson (12), Josephine (11), Klamath (31), Lake (5), Lane (49), Lincoln (3), Linn (19), Malheur (17), Marion (134), Morrow (2), Multnomah (114), Polk (14), Sherman (1), Tillamook (4), Umatilla (50), Union (4), Wallowa (2), Wasco (7), Washington (27), Yamhill (44)

The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Oregon on Wednesday was 480, according to OHA, 14 less than Tuesday. Of those, 120 patients were in ICU beds, which is 13 more patients from Tuesday.

On Wednesday, OHA also reported eight additional deaths connected with the coronavirus.
