vagfilm Portugal is a good example and Bulgaria is also a good (although arguable) counter-example for the same purpose. Because we are vaccinated at 20%, nobody obeys the rules, people don't wear masks, etc. We had worrying increase of the cases and deaths around November, however contrary to prediction we reached a peak and then in the same quick way the cases decreased drastically. We still have some daily deaths but as I have previously explained we've been the absolute champion in deaths for the last 20 years because people don't live healthy and don't care.
I'm not reccommending the Bulgarian model but I think it's interesting because it proves that even when you believe all is beyond control and people would just keep on dying like flies, that doesn't actually happen. Well, yes, we're holding the current world-record (second to Peru) for Covid deaths per million people but I will not stop reminding that we held that record before Covid too, we're just a very unhealthy nation. Taking in mind there were virtually no Covid-restrictions here (there are some on paper but nobody obeys them), it's rather amazing that the current Covid deaths are as low as they are. It's a huge speculation on my side but I bet we won't be hurt by Omicron. We will know pretty soon.
