South African Covid-19 cases drop may show Omicron peak has passed

Daily virus case counts are notoriously unreliable, as they can be affected by uneven testing, reporting delays and other fluctuations – but they are offering a hint that Omicron infections may recede quickly after a ferocious spike.

SPI-M modellers: a response to our critics

In late November, scientists in South Africa and Botswana identified a new variant of the virus that causes Covid. This variant — later named Omicron — was spreading rapidly throughout South Africa, particularly in Gauteng, its most populous province. As well as reporting these concerning epidemiological facts, South African scientists worked quickly to identify Omicron’s genetic sequence and to alert the world with further bad news: Omicron has a large number of mutations in the region of the virus that our immune system recognises after we are vaccinated.

How did the omicron coronavirus variant evolve to be so dangerous?

We do not know for sure where or how the omicron variant of the coronavirus acquired such an extensive and dangerous set of mutations before beginning to spread like wildfire around the world, and we may never know. It most likely evolved in a single immunocompromised individual, possibly an HIV-positive person living somewhere in southern Africa who was not receiving effective treatment, but there is no direct evidence for this.
