Omicron Variant ‘will push us over 1 million deaths’ health professor says

“Omicron will push us over a million deaths,” said Andrew Noymer, a public health [associate] professor at the University of California, Irvine, to the Associated Press. “That will cause a lot of soul searching. There will be a lot of discussion about what we could have done differently, how many of the deaths were preventable.”
