Wisconsin’s surge of COVID-19 cases, driven by the Omicron variant, has peaked, and new cases are expected to sharply decline in coming months, according to Mayo Clinic Health System computer models. Still, health experts warn that unless more people take vaccines and booster shots more seriously, future surges are inevitable.

During a Mayo Clinic press briefing Jan. 26, data scientist David Sorlie said Wisconsin has gone “over the hump” in the latest surge of new COVID-19 cases. Sorlie is part of Mayo’s Predictive Analytics Task Force, which has tracked U.S. cases since the start of the pandemic and helped build predictive modeling allowing health system leaders to plan hospital operations.
