The CDC Says The Omicron Variant Of The Coronavirus Is Now Responsible For 73% Of All Cases In The U.S.

Roommates, the Centers For Disease Control has just confirmed that the Omicron variant of the coronavirus now accounts for the most cases in the U.S., currently totaling 73%. As the Omicron variant continues to sweep across the nation, the CDC officially provided the alarming update indicating just how fast it is currently spreading.

According to the latest information from the CDC, Omicron is now ahead of all other variants of COVID-19 and is now the leading version of the virus in the country, as 73% of all new infections within the last week were attributed to the new variant that initially emerged just after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Omicron is also infecting several areas of the country in extremely high rates. In New York, the southeast, the Midwest and the Pacific northwest, 90% of new infections are due to Omicron. New numbers further suggest that over 650,000 Omicron infections developed within the last week.

Speaking about the latest development, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the new numbers are steady with those in other countries and that she is not surprised at the increase. “These numbers are stark, but they’re not surprising,” she said.

As we previously reported, Dr. Anthony Fauci provided a grim update regarding the latest Omicron variant of the coronavirus. He also stated that not only is Omicron stronger, but it also appears to be “overtaking all other variants including Delta” while moving two and three times as fast.

He was very straightforward when asked about the rising Omicron variant of the coronavirus, saying that the latest highly contagious strain is “something to be reckoned with” and that “It is really rapidly spreading literally throughout the world and certainly in our own country.” Dr. Fauci quickly added that Omicron is proving to be more contagious and deadly than previous variants.
