Estimated 73% of US has omicron immunity
The omicron wave that assaulted the United States this winter also bolstered the nation’s defenses, leaving enough protection against the coronavirus that future case spikes will likely require much less, if any, dramatic disruption to society.
Millions of individual Americans’ immune systems now recognize the virus and are primed to fight it off if they encounter omicron or another variant.
I saw a meme last night in Twitter that I am now sorry for not capturing. It went something like “The reason COVID is suddenly being defeated is not due to vaccines, or mask mandates or social distancing but the upcoming midterm elections.”
I believe there is a lot of truth behind that statement.
