PORTLAND, Ore. – There are 423 new confirmed and presumptive cases of coronavirus in the state on Friday, Oregon Health Authority said.

This brings the state total to 20,636.

The OHA model projects the results of three scenarios:

  • If transmission continues at the current level during the next month, the estimated number of new daily infections will remain steady over the next four weeks at approximately 1,000 per day, and the number of daily new severe cases will increase slightly from 17 to 19.
  • If transmission decreases by 10 percent and continues at that level during the next month, the model projects approximately 300 new infections per day and 9 new severe cases per day by Aug. 27.
  • If transmission increases by 10 percent and continues at that level during the next month, the model projects approximately 2,300 new infections per day and 32 new severe cases per day by Aug. 27.

Recently released modeling shows that the spread of the virus is slowing down in Oregon. The results suggest that transmission increased in May and decreased in late June and early July. Health officials warn, though, that the state could see additional spikes if Oregonians do not follow safety precautions.

Friday’s new cases include one in Baker, three in Benton, 16 in Clackamas, one in Clatsop, two in Columbia, 18 in Deschutes, three in Douglas, one in Grant, three in Hood River, 12 in Jackson, five in Jefferson, three in Josephine, one in Klamath, 13 in Lane, one in Lincoln, six in Linn, 21 in Malheur, 47 in Marion, 21 in Morrow, 110 in Multnomah, seven in Polk, 53 in Umatilla, two in Union, three in Wasco, 53 in Washington and 17 in Yamhill.
