They said that because Omicron is spreading so fast, the number of Delta cases seem to be small, but in fact, the actual number of Delta cases have only gone down just a little. It's due to the quick rise in Omicron cases that just makes it look smaller.

Efficiency of spread.

Delta decline will lag the surge of Omicron, and eventually see a level of displacement proportionate to the increased contagiousness of Omicron. But it takes a while for case numbers to reach a new equilibrium.

But the spread of Omicron is so quick, that it displaces Delta quite rapidly... not requiring "a while" to reach a new equilibrium.

Recently in Japan, there are thousands of cases of Omicron but only 40 cases of the Delta variant.

Something else even milder could replace Omicron.  It better happen quickly before they run out of alphabet letters.

LOL... well, they're already saying that the flu is more dangerous than Omicron.

Do we issue face mask mandates for the flu?

Do we close down schools, churches, etc. for the flu?

Do we mandate vaccines for the flu?

I agree, but then we have some left leaning states coming up with this:

Then people who can leave the state will leave.

Many have already flocked out of California & New York, some for Oregon and Washington State too. This is just going to cause even more to leave.

The sad thing is that the poor won't have the monies to move out.

They voted for those policies, though. So they will get to remain masked forever.
