Oregon Could See 5,000 New COVID-19 Cases a Day by Mid-July if Trends Continue, Researchers Warn

New disease models released today by the Oregon Health Authority warn that daily COVID-19 infections could increase 20-fold by mid-July if trends continue.

The June 25 report from the Institute for Disease Modeling projects that, in a worst-case scenario, Oregon could see as many as 5,030 daily COVID cases by July 16. Even under a moderate scenario, daily cases are expected to rise to 910 cases a day. The current daily average for COVID cases is 180 each day.

Shortly after the models were released, OHA revealed new daily numbers: 250 new COVID cases today, 61 of them in Multnomah County. Those numbers are not records, but are among the highest single-day totals since the pandemic began.

The state's death count surpassed 200, reaching 202 with five new deaths reported today.
