Because it started: Oregon has actually now reported 12,170 overall cases coronavirus cases and 234 deaths. In total, 286,197 people have been checked.
The Oregon Health Authority on Sunday reported 332 new validated or presumptive cases of the coronavirus and 2 more deaths.
The days numbers continue a pattern of greater case counts recognized considering that the state began resuming in May 15, a boost thats mainly not attributable to more screening. Public health authorities say just a fraction– about 14%– of cases are being found.
Current infection transmission models estimate that the state might see anywhere from 1,100 to 7,300 new cases per day by the end of July. In a scenario where transmission rates increase by 10%, the number of cases needing hospitalization might leap from about 17 a day in early July to as numerous as 76 a day, which might challenge Oregons hospital capacity.
