Three more residents recover from COVID-19

Three more Jackson County residents have recovered from COVID-19, according to Jackson County Public Health.

That brings the number of recovered patients to 46, 88% of the 52 cases reported in the county so far.

The six other patients continue to be monitored, according to Jackson County Public Health.

No deaths have been reported in the county from the disease, officials said.

Two of the patients still battling the disease are in their 20s, one is in their 30s, one in their 50s, and two patients are in their 60s.

The average recovery time for patients has been about three weeks, said county Medical Director Dr. Jim Shames.

“Obviously it’s going to vary. Some people are going to get over it quicker than others,” Shames said. “Often people are at their sickest on week number two.”

Four more people died from the disease in Oregon, bringing the death toll to 144, the Oregon Health Authority reported Wednesday. Sixty-five more confirmed cases were reported, along with 10 more presumptive cases, bringing the number of confirmed cases to 3,701, with 100 presumptive cases statewide.
