    BCG Executive Perspectives Special Edition: Is Omicron Signaling a Shift to Endemic COVID?

    Is Omicron Signaling a Shift to Endemic COVID

    If the latest variant has taught us anything, it’s that we’ve still got a ways to go in the fight against COVID-19.Though it is less severe than previous variants, Omicron has dwarfed previous peaks quickly because of its high transmissibility. The good news is that we as a society have learned from the past two years and, armed with vaccines and increased public health measures, have it within our power to reduce hospitalizations and deaths. Still, we need to be ready to live with COVID in the years ahead. Managing this coexistence will require governments to accelerate their support for global equity in testing, vaccine distributions, and therapeutics. Businesses, for their part, should continue to work closely with the public sector in the interest of public health and safety.
