SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Oregon appears to be an outlier as coronavirus cases start to peak in other states.

Of all the states in America, Oregon is one of five states expected to have the fewest COVID-19 deaths per capita.

That's according to researchers at the University of Washington who developed a closely watched model.

Oregon is expected to have 0.1 deaths per 100,000 residents on April 26 when the virus peaks.

However, officials want the peak to be well past before they consider reopening the economy.

North Dakota, California, Utah and Arkansas also had or are expected to be at that low level.
