OHA releases modeling update
Today, the OHA released its latest update to the modeling projections, showing that COVID-19 has continued to spread in Oregon over the past few weeks and has the potential to continue to increase in its spread.
The model examined three scenarios:
- The first scenario is where transmission continues at its current level for the next few weeks, new infections and cases will increase significantly. The model suggests that new infections will increase to 2,200 from 1,300, and daily reported cases will increase to 570. Hospitalizations from COVID-19 will increase to 40 per day. The reproduction rate will remain at 1.15.
- The next scenario assumes an increase in transmission of 5 percentage points. Daily infections would increase to 3,400 and 740 daily reported cases. Admissions would increase to 48 a day. The reproduction rate would be 1.30.
- The most optimistic scenario assumes a decrease in transmission by 10 percentage points. This would result in 1,400 daily infections corresponding to approx. 290 daily reported cases. Admissions would drop to 20 a day. The reproduction rate will decrease to 0.88.
