New modeling shows good news

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

That’s because the state’s reproduction rate declined to 0.88 on August 25.

If this rate continues, the OHA estimates an average of around 1,500 new daily cases and 80 hospitalizations between September 15 and September 28.

However, that number is what the OHA calls optimistic.

If you factor in the assumptions about reopening schools and public events, new cases could average just under 2,000 per day and 107 hospitalizations over the same period.
