See how the line is already plunging?
Here’s a closer view:
And deaths are approximately 1/12th what they were at previous peaks (some of those are likely from Delta, and many of the rest “with” Covid deaths).
And, again, this has nothing to do with vaccines - almost three out of four South Africans is not vaccinated. The earlier variants of SARS-Cov-2 were a cold for younger people in decent shape. Omicron is a cold, period.
I said it two weeks ago, I said it last week, and I’ll say it again: it is over. OVER. (Barring a new strain.) And if you get yourself or your kids vaccinated at this point - with a vaccine that doesn’t even work against Omicron - you are worse than a fool.
