The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday slashed its estimate for the prevalence of the Omicron variant in US COVID-19 cases by 50 percent. The agency released a revised chart on Tuesday showing that the new variant accounted for 23 percent of all cases for the week ending on December 18, as opposed to the 73 percent it originally reported. Therefore, the Delta variant has been accounting for far more infections than the agency initially thought.
