The BC COVID-19 Modelling team issued their sixteenth
on the status of
COVID-19 in British Columbia (January 19th, 2022). This report focuses on the
Omicron variant, which is spreading rapidly in Canada, even among those fully
vaccinated. Erratum: Slide #17 was corrected (January 25th), because the wrong graph
was originally included on the right for Scenario #2 (with a mean hospital stay of 12 days
rather than 6 days, as stated); the conclusions remain unaffected.
