50% of All Americans Will Be Infected with Omicron

By the middle of February, most modelling predicts that at least 50% of Americans will have been infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

This prediction is based on infection rate, whereas many states are showing possibilities of peak infection. That only means, however, that we’re at the mid-way point of this particular infectious wave.

Without sweeping healthcare measures, worldwide vaccine access, and anti-vaxxers getting the vaccines, the death toll will increase and a return to “Normal” will be delayed. Enhanced public health measures are key to mitigate the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, many jurisdictions are still anti-science and are directly contributing to the collapse of the healthcare systems. Everyone does not inevitably have to contract the virus. Good ppublic health measures can mitigate this occurrence.
