Just as we think Covid is finally getting better. We get statistics back from Jan. 30- Feb. 5, and we find this was Omicron’s deadliest week. More than 18,400 deaths were reported. Deaths spiked and a new wave overcame the country. Dr. Robert Wachter, the chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco’s School of Medicine, said that the omicron wave was complex. While large amounts of the population were unvaccinated Watcher said some had immunity from the leftover antibodies. Turns out this variant that seems so harmless really isn’t after all.
