Douglas County’s coronavirus death rate is almost the highest in Oregon. Following Douglas County’s 66th coronavirus death reported today, 2.2% of Douglas County’s total coronavirus cases have resulted in death. That is a higher percentage than all but Hood River (population 23,382), Wallowa (population 7,081) and Wheeler (population 1,366) Counties.
