CDC director says US may see 'precipitous decline' in omicron cases like South Africa

Fear me. I'm very mild, so vax, re-vax, and hide.
The director responds to criticisms on bad COVID-19 guidance. CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday (1/7/21) there is a good chance that the U.S. will follow the "ice-pick"-shaped curve of South Africa's omicron surge of the COVID variant, which is inexplicably declining.

But to continue to promote fear and panic, she cautioned that it could roll through different parts of the country at various times, as previous waves have.

No, I'm not nervous or lying, just very interested.
"I do think in places that we are seeing this really steep incline, that we may well see also a precipitous decline, but we're also a much bigger country than South Africa," Walensky said in a briefing with reporters.

"And so it may very well be that we see this ice-pick shape, but that [as] it travels across the country [we discover that we fomented all this dread and offered bad advice without meaning to]," she said. More + VIDEO
