OHA releases modeling update
Today, OHA released its latest modeling forecast update, which shows that COVID-19 has continued to spread in Oregon over the past few weeks and has the potential to continue to increase in distribution.
The model considered three scenarios:
- The first scenario is that when the transmission continues at its current level over the next few weeks, new infections and cases will increase significantly. The model assumes that new infections will increase to 2,200 out of 1,300, and daily reported cases will increase to 570. COVID-19 hospitalizations will increase to 40 per day. The reproduction rate will remain at 1.15.
- The next scenario assumes an increase in transmission by 5 percentage points. Daily infections would increase to 3,400 and 740 daily reported cases. Hospitalizations will increase to 48 per day. The playback speed will be 1.30.
- The most optimistic scenario assumes a drop in transmission by 10 percentage points. This would lead to 1,400 daily infections, amounting to about 290 daily reported cases. Hospitalizations will drop to 20 per day. The playback speed will drop to 0.88.
