The peak of the covid wave, driven by the infections linked to the Omicron variant, will arrive by mid-February in the United States. Infectious disease specialist Anthony Fauci said he was “very confident” that most of the United States will reach a peak in omicron cases by the middle of next month.
“You can never be too sure when dealing with this virus,” Fauci told ABC’s “This Week” co-host Martha Raddatz, adding that Covid-19 has “surprised us in the past.” . But, she added, “things seem to be going in the right direction right now”, explaining that in the states where the peak has already been reached, cases have dropped “quite sharply”.
The hope, he said, is that future variants will not “disturb society,” that is, they will be below the level of control. Even though the country should still be “prepared for the worst case scenario”.
