Will Omicron Patients Overwhelm Hospitals?

Here’s The Scoop

White House chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, warned that omicron cases will soon overwhelm hospitals within “a few weeks.”

Fauci said fully-vaccinated individuals, especially those who have received a booster shot, will be “relatively well-protected, at least against severe disease.” However, he is concerned about the unvaccinated.

“Besides the toll of suffering and death which will inevitably go up if in fact we have that convergence in the winter months of flu and omicron and delta, we could get our hospital systems overwhelmed,” Fauci said, noting that health workers are already exhausted after almost two years of fighting the pandemic.
