OHA corrects weekly report data

The Oregon Health Authority published incorrect data in a table that shows percentages for people with risk factors in all COVID-19 cases in Oregon in the COVID-19 Weekly Report. The data include several categories: persons who had contact with a confirmed case; persons in congregate living settings; health care workers; direct patient care providers, persons who travelled out of the area and persons with underlying conditions.

The data reported accurate numbers of cases, however there was no change in the reported percentages, due to an error. The reports were published on OHA’s COVID-19 website for April 21, 28 and May 5.

The weekly report is a comprehensive surveillance report on COVID-19 that is published every Tuesday. The COVID-19 Weekly Reports with incorrect risk factors are being revised to reflect the correct data.

In the weekly report for May 19, included incorrect totals for numbers of cases and deaths in congregate care facilities. An updated version of the report is here.
