NBC: Omicron Covid-19 variant could already be in U.S., Fauci says 

It is possible that omicron, a new Covid-19 variant first detected in South Africa, could already be in the United States, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. 

While there are no confirmed cases of the new variant in the states, Fauci said he “would not be surprised” if omicron already made its way to the U.S. 

“We have not detected it yet, but when you have a virus that is showing this degree of transmissibility and you’re already having travel-related cases that they’ve been noted in Israel and Belgium and in other places, when you have a virus like this, it almost invariably, is ultimately going to go essentially all over,” Fauci told Weekend TODAY Saturday.
