PORTLAND, Oregon — The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported 2,099 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases and 22 more deaths on Friday.

There have been 309,841 COVID-19 cases and 3,569 deaths in Oregon.

New COVID-19 modeling report

The OHA's latest COVID-19 forecast shows a projected decline in daily cases and hospitalizations through late September.

The modeling report estimates an average of 830 daily cases and 41 hospitalizations between Sept. 22 and Oct. 5. The OHA said that projection was based on the lowest point of transmission.

The report provided an alternative scenario taking into consideration the impacts of reopening schools and scheduled public events during the next month. In that scenario, there is an estimated average of 1,060 daily cases and 51 hospitalizations over the same two-week period.

The OHA said there are 58 available adult ICU beds out of 658 total (9% availability) and 369 adult non-ICU beds out of 4,246 (9% availability).
