Peak of COVID-19 infections in Chicago

Chicago authorities are concerned to know whether or not the peak of covid-19 infections has been reached. The wave is rising despite few reports to date.
This point is still not clear to the Chicago health authorities, since being at the top could be a positive thing because it would lower the curve.
Although the data could point to optimistic reasons, precautions should continue, said Dr. Allison Arwady, commissioner of the Department of Health.
Alfredo Mora, a specialist in infectious diseases, commented: “We have seen an extremely rapid increase in recent weeks and now it seems that this increase has paused a bit, that is a good sign, but it is difficult to know what the trajectory will be
It is expected that in Chicago, after the analyzes carried out in other countries, although the omicron is rising rapidly, it is also falling.
Dr. Mena Lora explained “It happened in South Africa and what has happened in other cities, where we are seeing more or less a slowdown, this is what we are seeing in Washington D.C. and in New York, here in Chicago we're seeing that little bit of a slowdown,"
There are currently 5,000 Covid-19 cases reported daily in Chicago, so the peak may not yet be clear. "Even if cases start to drop, we would still be in a dark stage of the omicron wave," said Dr. Mena Lora.
