The Omicron wave breaks, but the death toll is higher than the Delta wave in the United States, reports the Seattle Times.
As of November 24 last year, when South Africa first reported the Omicron variant to the World Health Organization, the United States has confirmed more than 30,163,600 new diseases and more than 154,750 new deaths, reports daily on Saturday.
By comparison, from August 1 to October 31, 2021, the same period that included the worst Delta surgery in the United States, the country confirmed 10,917,590 new infections and 132,616 new deaths, he said.
The death toll during the Omicron wave is 17 percent higher than that of the Delta.
The death toll emphasizes the “continuing national catastrophe,” the report said, adding “if the number of people infected with the disease is equal to 30 million stars, even a small number of deaths would mean a catastrophic death toll.”
