Omicron cases could fall as quickly as they rose in the US — new models suggest daily infections may have already hit their max

People take COVID-19 tests at pop-up testing site in New York City on December 7, 2021.Reuters/Brendan McDermid Omicron cases could be peaking roughly a month after they started rising in the US, models suggest. Disease experts predict that cases could fall back down as quickly as they rose. By the end of the wave, Omicron may have infected "a substantial fraction," if not a majority, of the US. Omicron appears to take a swifter, sharper course than its predecessors: Cases of the variant tend...

The Omicron wave looks swift and painful — some scientists expect US cases to peak in January and bottom out in March

A person receives a COVID-19 test at a walk-up testing site in New York City on December 15, 2021.David Dee Delgado/Getty Images The US Omicron wave could peak sharply in January, then bottom out in March, new models suggest.  Omicron could represent the swiftest outbreak in the US to date, lasting no more than three months. But hospitalizations and deaths are still expected to rise as the variant becomes more widespread. Almost as quickly as the Omicron variant tore through the US, some scie...

How Many More Will Die Of COVID In The Next Few Months?

This much is clear: The fall COVID-19 wave will cause tens, and maybe hundreds, of thousands more deaths. Some epidemiologists are forecasting a staggeringly high death toll over the coming months. The U.S. COVID-19 death toll currently stands at 259,045, according to Johns Hopkins. According to Seattle’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a widely cited model, that number could reach 471,000 by the end of February. That estimate would represent an additional 212,000 deaths within a...

(CNN) — Another 134,000 people could die in the US from Covid-19 by December if no further safety measures are mandated — and the actual number probably would be much worse if mandates are relaxed, researchers say. The projection by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation comes with a silver lining: About 70,000 of those lives would be saved if many more Americans wore masks, the institute’s leader said. “It really depends on what our leaders do, (both) as indi...

Researchers lower forecast for U.S. COVID-19 deaths even as cases climb

The new IHME worst-case forecast - 179,106 U.S. lives lost by Oct. 1 - was revised downward from the 201,000 deaths projected on June 15.
