Closing Bell is the surge in infections or when the Omicron variant will start to recede.

I would imagine, given the size of our country and the diversity of vaccination versus no vaccination, that it likely will be more than a couple of weeks, probably by the end of January, I would think,” Fauci added.

Along with this. Doctor Anthony also predicted that the Omicron variant might end the ongoing pandemic. Like a mild variant ended the Spanish flu.

“I would hope that’s the case,” Fauci said when asked about the possibility of the pandemic being ended. but “there’s no guarantee that that would happen.” he added.

 “if you have a very transmissible virus that replaces another virus, and the replacement virus has less of a degree of severity, that would be a positive outcome,” he said.

“What you say is possible, that that would happen, but there’s no guarantee that that would mean the end of a serious outbreak,” Fauci said.

“I hope that’s what’s being foreshown now, right? That we’re going to be seeing that,” he added. “Hope so, but can’t guarantee it.”
