Omicron infections may have plateaued in London, Neil Ferguson says

The Guardian says Prof Neil Ferguson, the scientist who helped shape Britain’s coronavirus lockdown strategy, says he is “cautiously optimistic” that Omicron infections have plateaued in London and could reduce in the next week.

Ferguson, a mathematical epidemiologist from Imperial College London, cautioned that record cases numbers being reported were likely to be an underestimate because test supplies have run out in some areas.

But speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “An epidemic reaching such high numbers can’t sustain those numbers forever. So we would expect to see case numbers start to come down in the next week, maybe already coming down in London, but in other regions a week to three weeks.”
