Researchers report a peak in COVID-19 in the UK: Micron Wave
According to a British scientist, the COVID-19 Omicron wave has crested in the UK, and instances are starting to decline in all age groups and practically all locations of the nation.
Data shows the Omicron wave has crested, according to Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King's College London and the main researcher on the ZOE COVID Research app, with hospitalizations, fatalities, and early information on the severity of the Omicron variation all "looking positive."
He said COVID-19 symptoms are now “for the first time this winter more common than colds and flu and are indistinguishable.”
According to data from the ZOE COVID Study, 52.5 percent of people experiencing new cold-like symptoms are likely to have symptomatic COVID-19, an increase from last week’s 51.3 percent.
There are presently 83,699 new daily symptomatic cases among those who have gotten at least two vaccination doses, down 11% from 93,540 new daily cases recorded last week.
