"It’s peaking right now," former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb says. The wave of omicron cases in the U.S. is likely to fade fast in the coming weeks, he says.

Gottlieb: Omicron wave could significantly diminish across the U.S. in just weeks. “The way down [for the omicron Wave] looks a lot like the way up. We’ve seen this before,” Gottlieb said.

The omicron wave wouldn’t crest in every part of America at the same time. It’s already cresting now in places like New York City and Boston. “The mountain states were engulfed a little earlier, so they’re further along,” Gottlieb noted.

Gottlieb: Southwest, Heartland states in sort of the Midwest and Great Lakes region to some degree. California and the Pacific Northwest were other areas where the omicron wave has probably already peaked. “I think once you get a week from now, maybe two weeks out from now,. people are gonna be looking at those charts [at news sites] and seeing infection rates come down,” he said.
