UK government yet to bring in restrictions to counter Omicron threat – BBC News

Pressure is growing on the UK government to bring in restrictions before Christmas to counter the rising threat from the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus. The Prime Minister Boris Johnson held a two-hour meeting with his cabinet on Wednesday to talk about the spread but after the lengthy discussions, he did not reveal any new measures. A former member of the Sage scientific group which advises the UK government says the rate at which Omicron spreads is more of a threat than its severity. Sir Jeremy Farrar of the Wellcome Trust described its spread as "unbelievably fast" and transmission rates as "eye-wateringly high". Please subscribe HERE #BBCNews #Omicron
