Omicron tsunami: Blood spot samples from thousands of OHS participants were included in a multi-study analysis showing the proportion of Canadians with antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 due to infection shot up, from 5.1 per cent just before the Delta variant wave (August, 2021), to 55.7 per cent in the five months after the Omicron wave (May, 2022). This represents an increase equivalent to more than 100,000 infections per day. Almost 10,000 OHS participants took part in the CanPath COVID-19 Antibody Study.
