Chart shows daily cases and 7 day moving average over the previous six weeks
OPB reports, “Last week the the Oregon Health Authority reported 1,318 new COVID-19 cases — an 11% increase from the previous week. Hospitalizations rose from 66 to 104.While Oregon’s data shows that the delta variant accounts for only 5% of the state’s COVID-19 cases, officials say that is likely an undercount as sequencing data can take weeks to be reported and not all coronavirus cases are tested for the variant.”
Will these cases trigger new restrictions? Governor Kate Brown has been early to adopt restrictions and late in relaxing them compared to other states.
