What will the COVID-19 pandemic look like in Oregon over the next month? Modeling shows scenarios

As Oregon faces a surge in coronavirus cases, new modeling suggests there could be plenty of more days with at least 100 new cases, if not more.

Researchers for the Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM), based in Bellevue, Wash., say it’s still too early to determine the full scope of why cases have surged over the past few weeks, but recent data appears to show transmission has increased by at least 10 percentage points since gradual reopening in Oregon began on May 15.

The concern over the spike in COVID-19 cases led Gov. Kate Brown, in consultation with state health officials, to pause all county reopening plans for at least a week, including Multnomah County’s Phase 1 application.

The IDM models, which the Oregon Health Authority uses for data analysis and planning purposes, were released on Friday. They project three different scenarios based on varying transmission rates. Read more about the breakdown of the three models:

  2. Ask the Oregon Health Authority to watch recordings of the demonstrators marching down the street so maybe they'll get an idea of why the virus is spreading. No masks or masks not covering noses and shoulder to shoulder. I guess besides moss COVID grows on all sides.

  3. I don't know how they come up with any desease models, when we're the worst state on testing. How the fuk do they know anything? And just like I figured, everybody tossed their masks when we relaxed some restrictions. Just wear the mask, don't gather, and try to avoid me when you can.

  7. The worst thing about this is that people still think this is a joke or that its about communism. Its about staying alive. If youre going to spout anything, back it up with links to the evidence. Currently, the virus is sprwading faster. That means we need to be even more careful. Protestors are spreading and it was obvious this would happen. We need to keep our sense, come together as a community and learn how to survive without the economy while this is happening instead of counting on the system to work because lets face it, the system does not work. There are too many people with egos that want what they want and wont compromise an inch which only screws the rest of us. Its time to put differences aside and make sure we stay alive. Strong opinions aside, its time to be smart. We need to call on real actions to stop the collapsing economy like freeze on mortgage payments and rent mandatorily. Social distancing food coops with rationed food for all. We have it in our power to these things. We dont need money or the economy to survive if we take the right steps.

  8. THEY SHALL OVERCOME THE BEAST (SATAN.DRAGON) BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY AND NOT AFRAID OF GIVING THEIR LIFE REV 12:11 the Lord gave me that scripture as the only cure for it. He told me this is the most important scripture in the entire Bible for us right now! use it!! No where else does any scripture target the Beast/Dragon directly AND HE MUST HONOR IT HE HAS NO CHOICE. DEPRESSION? USE IT AGAINST HIM. As a former Green Beret that single scripture is my WEAPON OF CHOICE no matter what you do, start their and win! and never quit- he is right on this vibration lever stuff, by doing this you give all the glory and success to the Lord! you set the potential vibration level to the infinity it is automatic! I hope you understand-the best way to help the poor is not become one of them.
