The Omicron variant of COVID is perhaps causing a lot more fuss across the world than any other previous strain of the virus. What’s for sure is that Omicron is spreading significantly faster, and it has led to the strongest COVID surge since the start of the ongoing pandemic. 

Despite hospitals struggling to cope with the surge in the US, the most affected country by the COVID pandemic, Anthony Fauci says that the authorities say that most states will soon reach and pass the ‘peak’, according to The Guardian.

Surprises could still emerge

Dr. Anthony Fauci still reveals that being overconfident is not exactly a smart move.

Dr. Anthony Fauci declared for ABC’s This Week, as The Guardian quotes::

I think [we’re] as confident as you can be,

You never want to be overconfident when you’re dealing with this virus, because it has certainly surprised us in the past.

But, if you look at the patterns that we have seen in South Africa, in the UK and in Israel, and in the [US] north-east and New England and upper midwest states, they have peaked and started to come down rather sharply.

There are still some southern states and western states that continue to go up but if the pattern follows the trend that we’re seeing in other places … I believe that you will start to see a turnaround throughout the entire country.

Dr. Fauci also said that there should be a bit more pain and suffering from hospitalizations in some of the country’s areas where people haven’t been fully vaccinated or ‘boosted’. The infectious disease expert believes that “things are looking good” and “like they’re going in the right direction right now”.
