New modeling shows continued surge in COVID-19 cases

Today the Oregon Health Authority released its latest modeling indicating a steep increase in the spread of COVID-19 dating back to early November.

According to the model, the effective reproduction rate – the expected number of secondary cases that a single case generates – was estimated to be between 1.25 and 1.69, with an estimate of 1.47.

The current level of transmission could result in “exponential” growth, resulting in approximately 1,500 new daily cases over the next two weeks. The model does have limitations, including that it is based on Oregon data only through November 6.
