Oregon Makes Global Headlines

Oregon, of all states, has made huge headlines the past few days. Oregon generously donated 140 ventilators to New York City. China then sent another 1,000 ventilators to New York City.

As of April 5th, Oregon has over 1,000 cases and 27 deaths. Portland hospitals only have a week or two left of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). After that mark, without extra funding or support, they will completely run dry of masks, gloves, and other essential items.

Schools are still to remain closed through April 28th, but maybe extended. Portland Public Schools expected to begin a series of online schools every week M-F.
