Washington
The Omicron variant of the corona virus has overtaken the Delta variant in the US. According to the latest estimates, 73 percent of the total corona cases coming to America are from Omicron. It was only 3 per cent last week. The rapidly growing infection of Omicron has now spread across the United States. The US CDC said that now there are only 27 percent of cases of delta variants in the country.

Omicron’s growing havoc in the US has led to fears that this rapidly growing variant could bring enormous pressure to America’s health system. The evidence that has come so far has shown that Omicron is not as deadly as the Delta variant. However, the spread of the Omicron virus can fill hospitals with sick patients. The US CDC said that the acceleration due to Omicron is expected and is similar to that in other parts of the world.

Omicron is also infecting people who have got the vaccine
In New York, New Jersey and Washington, Omicron cases have crossed 90 percent. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has warned that the Omicron variant is spreading faster than Delta. Due to this, the infection is spreading rapidly even among those who have been vaccinated or have recovered from the corona epidemic. WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom said, “There is now consistent evidence that the Omicron variant is spreading faster than the delta.”

Omicron is spreading rapidly across the country and has been detected in at least 48 US states as of Monday. The first case in the country was detected on December 1 in California. The infectivity of the Omicron variant and its potential ability to evade the immune system has caused concern across the country. Covid-19 cases, deaths and hospitalizations continued to rise in the United States, leading to the cancellation of large events, including sports and live concerts. Some colleges have shifted to online classes and exams for the rest of the semester for students to go back home earlier.


Omicron outbreak increased rapidly in America
The latest data from the CDC shows the country is reporting an average of about 130,000 new cases daily, up 10 percent from the previous week. The seven-day average of daily deaths is about 1,180, up 8.2 percent from the previous week, according to CDC weekly figures. However, even cases of new infections did not deter people from flying for holidays. The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has screened more than two million passengers for the fourth day in a row.
