Virus Expert Just Gave This Important Omicron Update

ETNT Health Logo By Alek Korab of ETNT Health | Slide 2 of 6: Gottlieb recently said many offices may have worked back as soon as this February. Does that timeline still hold, all the more so since cases are going down? "Yeah, I think that timeline's still intact," said Dr. Gottlieb. "You're seeing a lot of businesses make decisions to return to work March 1st beause I think they want to give themselves a cushion, especially having been surprised before. You're seeing cases come down very rapidly in the East Coast, the states that were the early outbreak states, Florida, the Mid-Atlantic, New York across the United States. There's still states that are probably in the thick of this. They have another week, maybe two weeks to go until they peak and start to come down. But in places like New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., you're seeing cases decline very rapidly. And I think that thesis around a February return is intact."
