PORTLAND, Ore. – Oregon Health Authority added 418 new confirmed and presumptive cases on Friday.

The current state total since the start of the pandemic is now nearly 39,000.

Officials said the new cases include: Benton (2), Clackamas (45), Columbia (3), Coos (5), Crook (1), Curry (1), Deschutes (18), Douglas (5), Jackson (18), Jefferson (3), Klamath (2), Lane (53), Linn (12), Malheur (17), Marion (35), Morrow (5), Multnomah (86), Polk (13), Tillamook (3), Umatilla (17), Wasco (2), Washington (58), and Yamhill (14).

There are also six new deaths in the state. OHA said they all had underlying conditions. The deaths include a 50-year-old Jefferson County man, an 82-year-old Washington County man, an 88-year-old Curry County woman, a 65-year-old Washington County woman, a 94-year-old Hood River County woman, and an 81-year-old Multnomah County man.

The death toll is now up to 617.

The latest modeling suggests that if transmission continues at its current level, new cases will increase substantially. Daily reported cases would increase to 570 in the next several weeks. With a 5% increase in transmission, that daily number could rise to 740. However, if transmission drops 10 percentage points, daily reported cases would be about 290.
