SEATTLE, Wa. -- The Institute for Health Metric Evaluations in Seattle updated its current peak date for the number of deaths per day for COVID-19 in Oregon to April 21.

This new date was determined after the IHME collected new data from the state. The original peak date was early May but updated after the institute saw new trends from aggressive social distancing measures and Gov. Kate Brown's Stay at Home order. 

The new data also predicts the number of coronavirus cases in Oregon will not overwhelm the medical care system. However, the data shows 171 COVID-19 deaths in the state through August. This is down from 560 deaths previously projected. The state will also see five deaths per day at the peak of the outbreak on April 21. 

The IHME follows and collects data on the pandemic on every state throughout the country. State leaders use their data to help paint a picture of the coronavirus in Oregon.
