Willamette Week: Bracing for Another Spike, Oregon Officials Say They’ve Traced COVID-19 Outbreaks to a Fraternity Bash and a Bachelor Party

Willamette Week: Bracing for Another Spike, Oregon Officials Say They’ve Traced COVID-19 Outbreaks to a Fraternity Bash and a Bachelor Party. “Oregon health officials released another round of bleak projections for the spread of the COVID-19 virus, saying the state could see as many as 7,300 cases a day by the end of July. The dire new modeling works off the hypothesis that Oregon is only diagnosing about a quarter of its new viral infections—and that the state is already experiencing 1,100 new cases per day. (The official cases have yet to top 400 a day.) The Oregon Health Authority now warns if residents don’t stay home and wear masks, that number could increase to anywhere from 3,600 to 7,300 new cases each day.”
