The Oregon Health Authority Saturday reported no new deaths from the novel coronavirus, which means the state’s total still stands at 147 people.
Officials also reported 35 total new known cases — 28 of them in the form of positive test results and seven that were presumptive cases.
The new cases were recorded in 13 counties: Clackamas (2), Clatsop (1), Crook (3), Deschutes (2), Jackson (1), Jefferson (1), Lane (1), Marion (10), Multnomah (4), Umatilla (2), Wallowa (1), Washington (6), Yamhill (1). Of note, Crook County’s cases, which had stood at 1, jumped to 4 on Saturday.

Their ages ranged from 41 to 100. Among those who have died, 62 were women and 85 were men.
County case totals: Seven counties — Multnomah, Marion, Washington, Clackamas, Linn, Deschutes and Umatilla — have reported 100 coronavirus cases or more. Gilliam, Lake and Wheeler have yet to document a single coronavirus case.
Here’s the overall count — confirmed and presumptive cases — by county: Baker (1), Benton (55), Clackamas (290), Clatsop (45), Columbia (16), Coos (31), Crook (4), Curry (6), Deschutes (117), Douglas (25), Grant (1), Harney (1), Hood River, (12), Jackson (56), Jefferson (25), Josephine (25), Klamath (41), Lane (67), Lincoln (8), Linn (112), Malheur (28), Marion (898), Morrow (12), Multnomah (1,037), Polk (95), Sherman (1), Tillamook (6), Umatilla (110), Union (6), Wallowa (2), Wasco (18), Washington (673) and Yamhill (64).
Testing: Another 2,373 people received test results for the coronavirs. That compares to 2,613 people reported on Friday, and 3,083 on Thursday, according to figures published on the health authority’s website.
So far, 110,118 people in Oregon have been tested for the illness since the state confirmed its first case on Feb. 28.
Ages: Of the state’s confirmed and suspected coronavirus cases, 2,118 people, or 54%, are under age 50, state figures show. Another 569, or 15%, are 70 and older.
Here’s the breakdown: ages 0-9 (50), ages 10-19 (147), ages 20-29 (592), ages 30-39 (658), ages 40-49 (671), ages 50-59 (681), ages 60-69 (520), ages 70-79 (337), ages 80-plus (232).
Gender: So far, 2,039 of the cases are among women, or 52%, and 1,843, or 47%, are among men. But more men have died: 83 compared to 61 women.
Hospitalizations: At least 740 of the state’s COVID-19 patients, or 19%, have been hospitalized at some point during their illness, according to the health authority. Currently, 47 people with confirmed coronavirus cases are hospitalized, including 23 in intensive care and 12 on ventilators.
Senior care homes: Six out of 10 coronavirus deaths in Oregon — a total of 83 — are associated with a care center, the most recent state data show. At least 545 senior care home residents, staff and close contacts from 64 nursing, assisted and retirement homes had contracted the coronavirus.
Recoveries: The median recovery time for infected Oregonians is 20 days and goes up to 24 days for people who were hospitalized with the infection, according to numbers released by state health officials Tuesday.
At least 1,795 COVID-19 patients have recovered from the illness, the health authority said.
Underlying conditions: The Oregon Health Authority’s most recent weekly report didn’t include a list of underlying medical conditions most common among people who have died.
An earlier analysis by the health authority proved confusing, it said, because it was based on limited medical information. The list caused “unwarranted apprehension about which groups might be at greater risk of dying from COVID-19,” the report said.
The health authority is now analyzing more complete medical information on the underlying conditions of hospitalized coronavirus patients and may include it in the future.
Cases in Oregon prisons: As of Friday, the Oregon Department of Corrections had reported a total of at least 148 cases among inmates so far, including one death. Positive cases have been reported at the Oregon State Penitentiary (115), Shutter Creek Correctional Institution (25), Santiam Correctional Institution (7) and Two Rivers Correctional Institution (1).
Nationwide: The U.S. has identified almost 1.6 million cases. More than 96,000 people have died.
