Will Omicron Ever End? Health Experts Expect Peak Soon

Omicron Variant Covid

We’re a few months into the Omicron surge, but is there light at the end of the tunnel?

Health experts, including Alabama Hospital Association President Dr. Don Williamson said we should be close to the peak.

“We are going to see Omicron peak,” Williamson said. “Is it going to be in seven days? Is it going to be in 5 days? I don’t know the answer to that.  It is going to be sooner rather than later. I don’t think we will be dealing with our peak Omicron case counts into mid-February. I expect that Omicron probably peaks next week in terms of cases. Hospitalizations will probably peak again sometime in early to mid-February. I think they will go down.. Hopefully, they will go down as rapidly as they’ve gone up.”

Some good news on the horizon, Williamson said springtime will likely help diminish case numbers.
