Oregon smashes daily virus record with nearly 400 new cases

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon smashed its previous daily record for COVID-19 cases on Thursday with a 389 new diagnoses and six deaths. The number of cases was the highest seen in the state since the start of the pandemic. State health officials attributed the high numbers to workplace outbreaks and community spread. The new cases bring Oregon’s total caseload to 11,188 and at least 220 deaths. Some rural counties are seeing sharp upticks in cases. On Thursday, Umatilla reported 55 new cases for a total of 938 cases. Many of those cases come from an outbreak at a potato processing facility. The reported deaths were in Crook, Marion, Umatilla and Clackamas counties.

    Get real, GNC. It’s just more tests. NO SURGE. It’s a lie, and you just bought it. And you wonder why no one wants to even comment here? Propaganda Central.

    There is very, very little “news” here and it’s certainly not a “center” for what is here.

    STOP REPORTING FEAR PROPAGANDA. DO REAL JOURNALISM.
