Model predicts sharp drop in COVID cases from next week
Researchers at the University of Washington predict that the number of daily reported cases in the United States will peak at 1.2 million by January 19 and drop sharply thereafter.
Ali Mokdad, professor of health metrics science at the University of Washington in Seattle, said it’s likely “because everyone who could be infected will be,” suggesting that Omicron “will go down just as quickly that it has increased “.
The projections have raised hopes that the two countries are on the verge of experiencing something similar to what happened in South Africa, where the wave peaked after about a month and then subsided considerably.
