OHA Releases Modeling Update

Today, OHA released its latest update to the modeling projections which show that COVID-19 has continued to spread in Oregon over the past several weeks and has the potential to continue to keep increasing in its spread.

The model examined three scenarios:

  • The first scenario is where transmission continues at its current level for the next several weeks, new infections and cases will increase substantially. The model suggests new infections would increase to 2,200 from 1,300 and daily reported cases will increase to 570. Hospitalizations from COVID-19 would increase to 40 a day. The reproductive rate would remain at 1.15.
  • The next scenario assumes a 5-percentage point increase in transmission. Daily infections would increase to 3,400 and 740 daily reported cases. Hospitalizations would increase to 48 per day. The reproductive rate would be 1.30.
  • The most optimistic scenario assumes a drop in transmission by 10 percentage points. That would result in 1,400 daily infections amounting to about 290 daily reported cases. Hospitalizations would drop to 20 per day. The reproduction rate would drop to 0.88.

  1. Positive case counts don’t matter when there is a 0.001% infection mortality rate for most age groups.
    The scam is up and the only people still interested in holding this country hostage are those on the left.

      1. Your lack of understanding is sad.

        Halfway down the page (because I feel I have to spell it out here):

        Infection Fatality ratios:
        0-19 years: 0.00002
        20-49 years: 0.00007
        50-69 years: 0.0025
        70+ years: 0.028
        CDC COVID-19 Survival Rates

        Age 0-19 — 99.997%
        Age 20-49 — 99.98%
        Age 50-69 — 99.5%
        Age 70+ — 94.6%

        I think we’ll all be okay…panic time is over

        1. Your lack of understanding that those numbers are based on incomplete data, therefore a conclusion cannot be made. You are not a scientist or health professional, so any of your claims are misleading and potentially harmful. You also fail to consider long-term effects of having the virus and recovering. It’s not like if you recover you’re back to your old self…
          Good job doing basic math, though.

          1. I am a health professional and what I see in the hospital makes me think we have had the wool pulled over our eyes and muzzles put on our faces for a threat that is near zero here in Deschutes County.

          2. One need not be a health professional to analyze very basic statistics released directly from the CDC. There is no need to project your lack of comprehension on myself.

        2. “The scenarios are intended to advance public health preparedness and planning. They are not predictions or estimates of the expected impact of COVID-19.” From your same click through……

          1. You realize masks don’t work and SCIENCE/CDC has given a rate of 75% failure 100% of the time, and another 10% “MOST” of the time, right? I mean you’re all about the SCIENCE, right? No….no you’re all about the narrative

            1. but , but your dear leader, big fat failing donnie, says the CDC is totally wrong unless of course the now desparate snowflake thinks science could suddenly get him reelected!!! –
              What I like is his total devotion to flip flopping. He has no convictions accept for what will make his little brain feel better about hinself. Remember when he was a huge Hillary Clinton fan!!! LOMAO!! – Him and his family donated bigly to Hillary’s senatorial campaign!!!!!!!!!!!!! – All public record. – The best was when after being asked by Carly Fiorina during the 2016 primary debates, cadet bones spurs famously claimed he paid the Clintons $100,000 to come to his 3rd wedding!!! – total human scum as your dear leader would say!!! – trump / putin 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      2. How is that science denying? Lot’s of stats that say your chances of dying of covid are about as high as you voting for Trump. Do you believe kids shouldn’t go to school in Deschutes County because of 13 covid deaths (8 of which were from a memory care home)? Show me the science that says we shouldn’t let kids go to school using those numbers. 3-4 patients at St. Charles with covid? Thought we were making sure the hospital wasn’t overwhelmed, never was, never will be. When you look up the numbers to reply, please add last years influenza deaths in Deschutes County and in Oregon…..thanks. Keep in mind we made our kids go into those germ infected facilities facing deadly influenza and never blinked a eye or put a muzzle on.

        1. I love it you hillbillies will believe anything!!!! – definitely feel sorry for the kids of these hillbilly science denying, trumpanzees – hopefully their guns and bibles will make them safe. As for the rest of us who are unfortunate enough to encounter these selfish, irresponsibe kooks, vote BIDEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. wonder what the fine folks over behind qanon have to say about the fearmongering with this 99 percent mortality virus. still see they havent addressed hunter and his laptop on this site but as barney said they’re more in tuned with local news.
