Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Fauci says he is 'confident as you can be' that US will soon reach peak in Omicron cases”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that the number of Omicron cases in the US could peak soon and start to fall.

When asked Sunday on ABC's 'This Week' whether he was confident that cases could could peak across the majority of states by mid-February, Dr. Fauci said he was "as confident as you can be."

"Things are looking good. We don't want to get overconfident, but they look like they're going in the right direction right now," he told the broadcaster.

Fauci, President Biden's chief medical advisor, said Omicron infections in states across the northeast and upper midwest had peaked and "started to come down rather sharply." Cases are still rising in some southern and western states, he added. 

"But if the pattern follows the trend that we're seeing in other places, such as the north east, I believe that you will start to see a turnaround throughout the entire country," he told 'This Week'.
