New Modeling Shows Good News

The Oregon Health Authority is projecting an upcoming drop in new daily cases and hospitalizations.

It’s because the state’s reproductive rate decreased to .88 on August 25th.

If that rate holds, the OHA estimates an average of about 1500 new daily cases and 80 hospitalizations between September 15th and September 28th.

However, that number is what the OHA calls optimistic.

If you factor in assumptions around the reopening of schools and public events, new cases could average just under 2,000 per day and 107 hospitalizations during that same time frame.
