The U.S. and other western countries have seen case counts from the Omicron wave of COVID-19 collapse over the past several weeks, and it now looks clear that the worst of this wave of the virus is behind us. As a result, and in conjunction with widespread population immunity due to vaccination and prior infection, restrictions are starting to be removed at a rapid rate around the world. It's important to remember that seasonality plays a big part in the spread of this virus, and cases could always rise once again, but for now it looks like the status quo of lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccine passports, etc. over the past two years may be coming to an end. The lagging effects of the draconian response to this pandemic will continue to be felt for years to come, and we will continue to monitor new information as it is released. Barring any major new developments, next week will be our final edition of the COVID tracker.
