Former FDA commissioner Doctor Scott Gottlieb said he thinks the U.S. may start seeing Omicron case numbers peak next month.

Right now, the U.S. is averaging over 350,000 new cases a day-- mostly fueled by the newest variant.

Last week, almost 400 children a day were hospitalized with COVID-19.

According to the CDC, that's a 66 percent jump from the week before.
