The OHA on Friday released new modeling scenarios about the spread of the virus in Oregon.

They show that the estimated number of new daily COVID-19 infections could be 300-2,300 per day over the next four weeks.

The model projects that:

  • If transmission continues at the current level during the next month, the estimated number of new daily infections will remain steady over the next four weeks at approximately 1,000 per day, and the number of daily new severe cases will increase slightly from 17 to 19.
  • If transmission decreases by 10 percent and continues at that level during the next month, the model projects approximately 300 new infections per day and 9 new severe cases per day by Aug. 27.
  • If transmission increases by 10 percent and continues at that level during the next month, the model projects approximately 2,300 new infections per day and 32 new severe cases per day by Aug. 27.
