These early signs indicate that the meteor may have peaked in places, following a pattern similar to that of a meteor shower already seen in South Africa or the United Kingdom.
According to the city’s official data, an average of 28,500 daily cases were reported in New York as of January 10, up from 42,000 almost two weeks earlier.
The trend was also slow in the US capital, Washington, which has been hit hard by Omigran.
The same is true in some states, such as Chicago or New Jersey or Maryland.
However, with unpredictable virus and the majority of states still registering increasing case curves, experts are careful to make hasty decisions.
The country currently registers an average of 780,000 new infections a day.
The first cases of Omicron were identified in the United States in early December, and this variant quickly became the majority, triggering a fifth wave that has not been seen since the outbreak began.
Although Omigran usually causes less severe disease than the delta variant, it is highly contagious and therefore leads to an outbreak of infections. Therefore, the number of severely ill persons is not less than the absolute number.
With nearly 160,000 people currently occupying one bed with Govit-19, the country is thus recording the number of hospital admissions.
The disease kills an average of 1,700 people every day in the United States.
