"U.S. COVID infections are hovering near levels of the pandemic’s first peak in
2020, and approaching the Delta peak of late 2021, according to wastewater
surveillance and modeling by forecasters.

It’s yet another sign that while the official pandemic state may be over, the
days of COVID are far from it.

Viral wastewater levels are not far behind all of the pandemic’s 2020 peaks
except for one—the initial peak of March 2020, which they’ve already surpassed.
And they lag just slightly levels seen during the deadly Delta peak of late
2021, according to Biobot Analytics, which monitors such data for the federal

A forecast issued this week by Jay Weiland, a leading COVID modeler, came to
the same conclusions. On Thursday, Weiland estimated that 650,000 Americans are
becoming infected daily, with 1 in 51 Americans currently infected with COVID."
