“COVID-19 is spreading faster in all parts of Oregon. It took six months before 25,000 Oregonians became sick with COVID-19 and two months more until we reached 50,000 total COVID-19 infections in Oregon,” Patrick Allen, the health authority’s director, said in a statement. “Most recently, it took three weeks to go from 50,000 cases to 75,000 and this weekend we crossed 900 total deaths.
“We can keep more people from getting sick and dying if we stay true to science-based mask-wearing and social distancing. With the bright promise of vaccines coming on the horizon, we can’t give up.”
