I don't even wear one anymore. Pretty much none of us our in our hospital system are at this point.so is it safe to assume hospitals at this point have not shortage in n95 masks/PPE? Shouldn't the gov't be addressing that first instead of sending n95 masks to unvaccinated billy bob who doesn't know how to put one on.

Why would doctor’s stop wearing them with omicron everywhere, and the CDC finally telling people to wear them?Sister in law is a nurse and said the same thing, Doctors don’t bother with them anymore.
As to what happens next in the pandemic, many experts, including top US infectious disease scientist Anthony Fauci, are hopeful the virus may continue evolving into a more prevalent but less severe pathogen because of selection pressure.
This would mean eventually living with a virus that causes only mild-to-moderate disease in most vaccinated people, with treatments such as Pfizer’s antiviral pill and monoclonal antibody infusions to help people who are at highest risk.
There are, however, no guarantees. In a recent interview with Der Spiegel, Fauci said that there would be continuing “smoldering” infections, particularly in lower-income countries with lower vaccination rates.
I don't think less severity is a driving selection pressure like infectiousness is. Severity is more of a crap shoot as far as I understand.7-day average of new daily cases peaked at around 890,000 on January 13, with drops most pronounced in states hit first by the wavewww.timesofisrael.com
