With Omicron proving to be a much milder form of COVID, Tyra Grove Krause, Denmark’s chief medical officer, stated its arrival marks the end of the COVID pandemic. She predicted it could be over in a couple of months.
The Daily Mail reports that in a recent TV interview, Krause said a study by her office found that hospitalizations are 50% lower than for Delta, despite the fact significantly more people are coming down with the virus.
The Daily Mail writes:
I think we will have that in the next two months, and then I hope the infection will start to subside and we get our normal lives back,’ she said on Monday.
Despite early fears that Omicron could prolong the pandemic due to its increased level of infection, Ms Krause said it actually could spell the end of the pandemic.
According to the study: ‘Omicron is here to stay, and it will provide some massive spread of infection in the coming month. When it’s over, we’re in a better place than we were before.’
