President Joe Biden will address the American public Tuesday about the omicron variant as COVID-19 cases continue surging to record levels following the holidays.

Nearly 1 in 100 Americans have tested positive for the virus in just the last week, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Over 1 million cases were reported in the U.S. on Monday alone, although many of the cases were likely backlogged from the New Year’s weekend.

While the holidays have likely muddled daily COVID-19 case counts, the spike in coronavirus cases nationwide shows a clear trend of yet another wave of the virus – and it’s likely that not all cases are being reported from at-home tests. Just before the new year, Biden put $137 million toward expanding production of at-home tests.
