After a brief spike in positive tests for COVID-19 to end last week, the numbers Sunday and Monday leveled off.

However, the county revealed Friday the 86th death in the county due to the coronavirus: a 68-year-old woman who tested positive for the virus on June 2 and died July 15.

In Friday’s county recovery report, 17 new cases were reported, with an additional 21 new cases on Saturday. Also Saturday, there was one presumptive positive which had been confirmed, and two other cases that were presumed positive.

Sunday and Monday brought better news, with just seven cases each day. As of Monday, nine county residents were receiving hospital care due to the coronavirus, six locally and three out of the area. In addition, the Douglas Public Health Network was monitoring 130 positive cases in isolation as well as 140 potential contacts in quarantine.

The Oregon Health Authority reported a similar spike over the weekend with 777 cases and confirmed nine deaths. In its Tuesday report, the authority reported 595 new positive cases and six additional deaths.

Vaccinations are still available throughout Douglas County, and the Douglas County Tiger Team has a series of mobile vaccination clinics planned during the week.

The Tiger Team will be at the Winston Grocery Outlet Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The team will also be at the Myrtle Creek Summer Festival at Millsite Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

There is an additional Tiger Team vaccination clinic which is tentatively scheduled for Thursday at the Linus Oakes Retirement Village, 2665 Van Pelt Blvd., Roseburg from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. To confirm this clinic is happening, call 541-670-3110 or 541-464-6550.

The Tiger Team clinics are open to anyone 18 or older.

12 U.S. states reported over 1,000 new coronavirus cases today with Florida leading the pack at 8,998 new cases.

Though totally preventable, here we go again. Look forward to hospitalizations, deaths and more negative impacts on businesses all because people who previously got a small pox shot to eradicate that disease refuse to get vaccinated for coronavirus. Soooo avoidable.

FedUp

9 Oregonians died over the past weekend from Covid. How many Oregonians died in the same 2 day period from other causes?? I will promise you that it is nowhere near that small number!

Mike

Could you take a vaccine to prevent deaths from the other causes? Because you can avoid death if you get vaccinated.

Mike

Douglas County had 100 new coronavirus cases and 3 deaths over the past week.

FedUp

What about the dozens of Douglas County residents that died over the past week from heart attacks, cancer, other misc. medical conditions, vehicle accidents and suicide Mike? Get some perspective!!!

Mike

Can you take a vaccine to avoid heart attacks, cancer, miscellaneous medical conditions, vehicle accidents and suicide FedUp? Because you can AVOID dying of coronavirus if you get vaccinated. That's called perspective.

FedUp

Evidently the vaccine doesn't prevent getting covid or passing it to someone else

Mike

Didn't know we were writing about being infected with coronavirus. I thought the discussion was about deaths.

Mike

29 new cases and yet another death, Douglas County's 87th, were reported today.

Douglas County's positivity rate is now over 8.5%, which is higher than the highest county in Florida.

Scomo

And your point is......? Are you aware that in the first two weeks of July more people died in the U.S. as a result of being vaccinated with the Moderna experimental drug than died from SARS-CoV-2 complications

Mike

I had not heard that. Can you please provide your source for this information?

Wow. Now I know why I had not heard that. According to Wikipedia:

The Gateway Pundit (TGP) is an American far-right fake news website. The website is known for publishing falsehoods, hoaxes, and conspiracy theories.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gateway_Pundit

Scomo

Mike you’re a dink, Wikipedia is YOUR source for unbiased information? It’s a far-left tool of the commies and has been foah yeahs. Note that the article in the Gateway Pundit cited data from the CDC, they didn’t make it up. Always go to the primary source Mikey, that’s the rule with research, but then again, I can see that you’re not much of a researcher if you’re using Wikipedia

Mike

It's not accurate to say people died "in the U.S. as a result of being vaccinated" as you claim. The U.S. FDA requires healthcare providers to report ANY death after a COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS, even if it’s unclear whether the vaccine was the cause. That's why the CDC's website says, "Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem."

Considering the vaccine was first focused on people 60+ years old, it is reasonable to believe some of those people would die from ailments unassociated with the vaccine. Yet they are still reported in VAERs.

Scomo

Mike, using your logic, it would seem that the 500,000+ deaths attributed to SARS-CoV-2 may not have been accurate as well. The CDC itself admitted in a June that only 6% of the reported COVID-19 deaths were directly the result of the virus infection. The others were due to complications. As you know, hospitals claiming the n death certificates that patients had died of COVID because of federal financial incentives

Mike

I had not heard that. Can you please provide your source for this information?

Scomo

Another unfortunate death, but I’ll wager that this poor woman died of something other than the virus, which exacerbated her condition

Mike

It was probably more than unfortunate. It was avoidable.

Scomo

How is that? Oh, you mean being vaccinated? So, why is it that six fully vaccinated Texas Democrat politicians tested positive for the virus and passed it on to Pelosi’s aide when they visited with her? Answer, the Miderna experimental drug doesn’t work

Mike
