Two of the biggest points were in Umatilla County, where the coronavirus continues to spread.

PORTLAND, Ore – Data from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) continues to show that the largest COVID-19 spots are in Eastern Oregon.

In its weekly report published Wednesday, the OHA updated the state-wide issue sharing with ZIP code. The data is current from 11pm Sunday, August 9th. The three areas with the newest cases were in Umatilla and Malheur counties.

The large increase in cases indicates that the coronavirus is still prevalent in Umatilla County. The county had a total of 2,362 known cases during the pandemic, the fourth largest of any county in Oregon, despite having a population of 78,000. The three Oregon counties with the most cases (Multnomah, Washington and Marion) all have at least 300,000 people. Clackamas County, which has a population of more than 400,000 people, had 700 fewer cases during the pandemic than Umatilla County.

As the aforementioned areas saw an increase in cases, the OHA said there was a slight drop last week in the number of cases nationwide. There were 2,278 known cases of COVID-19 two weeks ago and 2,122 cases last week, according to OHA. The number of deaths also dropped, from 39 two weeks ago to 29 last week, as did the positive test rate, which fell from 6.4% to 5.4% last week. Health officials said last week it appeared the weekly number of Oregon cases had been abused.

The age group most affected by COVID-19 remains people aged 20-29, although people 80 and older make up almost half of all hospitalizations, the OHA said. Most cases continue to be sporadic, meaning there is no known source and indicates that the virus is prevalent.
