The CDC says the BA.2 Omicron subvariant is now the dominant SARS-COV-2 strain in the US.
The CDC also says most Americans are in “low COVID transmission”.
Last week, top U.S. infectious disease official Dr Anthony Fauci said that although he does not expect a major surge, he would not be surprised to see a rise in cases owing to the increasing dominance of the BA.2 sub-variant.
So when does “endemicity” kick in?
Endemicity is like a recession. It takes a while (generally at least several months) after it kicks in for it to be recognized as having done so. :)
