Newest COVID-19 model shows continued slowing in cases, hospitalizations
Oregon Health & Science University is now providing the COVID-19 forecast model. The latest report projects a continuing overall decline in cases and hospitalizations for the remainder of this year. Pediatric hospitalizations remained steady and ICU admissions for COVID-19 related illness increased slightly over last week.
The model makes it clear that adherence to mask wearing and following other public health protocols is important in preventing infection and therefore lowering infection and hospitalizations.
