Oregon hit new highs for both COVID-19 cases and deaths Thursday, the Oregon Health Authority reported.

As of 12:01 a.m. Thursday, the state had 1,225 new confirmed and presumed cases of COVID-19 and 20 new deaths.

The new cases pushed Oregon past the 800-mark for total deaths and the 60,000 mark for total deaths.

“We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost a loved one to COVID-19,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen.

Allen noted that the state surpassed 800 deaths less than three weeks after hitting the 700-death mark.

“These are family, friends, neighbors and we note their deaths with sadness and a renewed determination to suppress the spread of the virus,” Allen said.

“I have heard frequently from those who have refused to believe this pandemic is serious if we aren’t seeing hospitalizations and deaths. Those hospitalizations and deaths are here, and are only likely to go up. Please take this seriously, and do what you can to slow the spread: wash your hands, wear a mask, and limit the number of people you come in close contact with.”

With Thursday’s report, the state death toll is 808 and the number of cases is 60,873.

The deaths also include one person who was 30 and two others in their 40s, all of whom had preexisting conditions.
