Daily Mail: Covid deaths start to steady with the US averaging 1,717 a day despite grim White House projections that at least 60,000 people will die by March: New cases fall 3% as Omicron surge slows

* Covid deaths in the U.S. are steadying, only increasing 7% over the past two weeks, as it appears the Omicron surge has finally peaked

* Despite the Omicron having a lower mortality rate – and the growth of deaths starting to slow – the White House unveiled projections on Wednesday that up to 300,000 people would die of Covid in next two months

* Cases in the U.S. are down 3% over the past week and the nation only logged 1 million cases on Tuesday despite a three day holiday backlog

* The White House has launched a website where Americans can order free Covid tests online – though it has been plagued by issues – and plans to distribute free N95 masks starting later this week

The Omicron variant is finally showing signs of receding in the U.S as new daily deaths, the most important metric in the pandemic that often lags behind cases, have steadied over the past week – despite the White House’s grim projection that between 60,000 and 300,000 Americans could die from the virus by March. Cases in the U.S. are starting to decline, another sign the peak has been reached. The nation only recorded 1.06 million new cases on Tuesday despite having three days worth of backlogged cases from the holiday weekend. For comparison, the country logged 1.36 million cases on Monday, January 10, despite having only two days worth of backlog to report on that day.

Warzone/The Drive: Mysterious South China Sea Missile Launch Claimed To Be Caught By Airliner (Updated)

Video taken from an airliner appears to show the launch of a missile from a ship or a submarine in the South China Sea.

Video has emerged on social media that is said to show an apparent launch of a missile, possibly from a submarine, as viewed from a Cathay Pacific Boeing 777 flying over the South China Sea. Unseen individuals can be heard in the clip talking about whether it is heading their way.

Twitter user @jchovernut, a pilot for U.S.-based airline Allegiant Air and a veteran of the U.S. Navy’s submarine community, posted the video, seen below, online on Tuesday. “They were over the South China Sea & were issued a last-minute hectic call from ATC: ‘turn left 90 degrees immediately!!,'” according to one Tweet accompanying the video.
