Live updates: Oregon passes 19,000 coronavirus diagnoses

27 minutes ago

COVID-19 has claimed one more life in Oregon, a 68-year-old Malheur County man who died a month after his diagnosis. That brings the pandemic’s death toll in the state to 325, health officials reported Sunday.

The Oregon Health Authority also reported 285 new confirmed and presumptive cases of the coronavirus Sunday, bringing the total diagnosed with the virus to 19,097 since the start of the pandemic.

The most new cases were in Marion County, which reported 53 diagnoses, followed by Multnomah County with 48, Washington County with 47 and Clackamas County with 26.

In mid-April, hundreds of scientists from around the world were supposed to fly to Ecuador for a five-day meeting about the latest research on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

From the City Club of Eugene:

The death of George Floyd on May 25 set off a series of protests across the United States and around the world, prompting greater public attention to excessive use of police force, as well as concerns about police oversight and accountability. Several other deaths, primarily of Black Americans, including Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, have compounded and magnified calls for defunding or abolishing the police, in addition to other strategies for police reform.

Federal judge Esther Salas says more must be done to keep judges and their families safe after an attack on her home in New Jersey last month that left her son dead and her husband wounded.

"My son's death cannot be in vain," Salas said in an emotional nine-minute video released Monday. "Which is why I'm begging those in power to do something to help my brothers and sisters on the bench."
