The Oregon Health Authority announced 127 new coronavirus cases Monday and zero new COVID-19 deaths as an impressive run of six straight weeks of declining cases came to an end.

The week ending Sunday was the first since April where total cases grew compared to the previous week. The state reported 1,780 new cases June 7 to June 13, compared to 1,725 new cases the week prior — an increase of 3%.

But that’s a marginal increase compared to the steep declines Oregon saw in the six prior weeks, with a nearly 70% drop from the 5,729 new cases the state reported during the week ending April 25.
