According to the Institute for Health Metrics (IHME), Omicron Covid cases in the United States would peak at roughly 2.8 million cases per day, up from 1.5 million cases per day now. They estimate that there will be above 1.5 million cases per day for the next 60 days, then drop to about 1 million cases per day in around 20 days. This would take around 60 days, with an average of 2 million cases each day for a total of 120 million cases, followed by another 25 million cases for the following 20 days, and then another 15 million cases for the next 20 days.
For the following 100 days, this would equate to around 160 million Omicron COVID instances. This equates to half of the population of the United States. Except for one scene in which most individuals began wearing masks all of the time and wore nice and effective masks on a daily basis, all of their scenarios depict this rocky route.
Daily Covid (omicron) instances are expected to peak at roughly 40 million cases per day, according to IHME. Almost the following 100 days, this would equate to over 2 billion instances worldwide.
The number of instances that have been tested and verified will be significantly reduced. According to Worldometers, daily cases in the United States are over 600,000 per day, while global cases are around 2 million per day. Cases are projected to be 2-3 times higher in the United States and 12 times higher globally, according to the IHME. Worldometers are expected to reach a high of roughly 1 million daily cases in the United States and 3-4 million daily cases worldwide. The end of January or the beginning of February should see the highest number of daily cases.
The use of masks was largely unsuccessful. Surgical-grade masks, N95 or KN95 masks or better, are helpful for preventing transmission and must be worn and treated appropriately to be effective.
In the United States, mask usage has plummeted to around 35%. This is based on asking people if they always use masks. The peak reported mask usage in the United States was at 70%. According to the Institute for Health Metrics, the Omicron wave would only reach 25% of the US population if the great majority of Americans become more devout about masks than they were at the height of mask usage in early 2021.

Omicron is a gentler COVID version than previous COVID variants. Omicron can be thought of as a natural technique to boost immunity.
It is evident that the United States as a whole will not take effective countermeasures, nor should they, unless they are part of a group that is particularly vulnerable to COVID-related severe sickness.
