Seems Omicron is the grim reaper for Covid, as was partially predicted.
An Omicron Peak?
|The current US COVID-19 surge may be close to peaking, according to researchers who suggest the highly transmissible omicron variant may soon run out of vulnerable candidates for infection. The cautious optimism comes as average daily cases dipped Tuesday for the first time since Christmas.|
A widely cited model currently predicts the number of COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization will peak around Jan. 26. The projections also suggest almost 80% of cases will either go untested or tested but unreported—the model peaks at more than 6.2 million total infections per day. Explore the dashboard here.
Separately, a new study comparing the omicron and delta variants showed a 91% reduction in death and a 53% reduction in hospitalization with the omicron strain (see data).
South Africa, where the variant was first observed, appears to be fully through the omicron wave, while cases have begun dropping in Britain. See a comparison with the US here.
But, Omicron itself is "the final vaccination"!From Boris Johnson to Emmanuel Macron, Europe’s leaders are increasingly going after anti-vaxxers as the battle against the fast-spreading omicron variant deepens the region’s pandemic fatigue.www.bloomberg.com
Not arguing it..just pointing out..lifeisgreat, everyone who wanted a vaccine, a booster or a another booster already has them. All the whining and complaints by world leaders and health experts is not going to change that now that we are in year 3 of this.
So, people have to move on regardless. Kids need to be in school and people back at work now.
Sure hope your right…the hospital are so full they kicked my kid out of hospital yesterday refused to admit her from emergency room saying your not sick enough and in there defence busting from the seems…I'm betting it will drop like a lead balloon by the beginning of Feb.
Feb 1 is has been my date for Peak Covid as well. Soon after governments will have to admit there is nothing more that they can do.I'm betting it will drop like a lead balloon by the beginning of Feb.
