SAN ANTONIO – With thousands of COVID-19 cases reported in San Antonio each day, and with even more cases arising across the nation, many are asking when this surge will end and when normalcy will begin again.

Ruth Berggren, an infectious disease specialist with UT Health San Antonio, joined KSAT’s Q&A on Thursday, saying there are already a few predictions for when omicron could peak and cases would drop.

Berggren said based off of one model from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the state of Texas as a whole may have already reached its peak.

If you go to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which is a common cited source, they think that Texas cases peaked around Jan.

This prediction comes after a record number of COVID-19 cases were reported by the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District on Wednesday, with 7,704 new cases in just one day.

On Thursday, cases dipped slightly but weren’t far behind, coming in at 5,781 cases, data shows.

Berggren said this surge locally isn’t surprising, considering what’s being seen nationally.
