Prime Minister Boris Johnson said any decision could be made considering the public’s health risks. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has suggested canceling Christmas celebrations in different countries of the world to control Omicron.
A new type of corona, Omicron, is becoming increasingly dangerous in Britain. So far, several people have died in this new type of corona in the country. Hundreds are hospitalized in critical condition.
British health experts say that if the current rate of omicron transmission continues to rise, there could be a major humanitarian catastrophe ahead.
In such a situation, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that he will take any measures to control Omicron. In a video message on Monday, he said the government would be forced to take strict action if public health was at risk.
Dominic Raab said the government has no plans to impose lockdowns or strict restrictions to prevent Omicron. Much of the information about the virus is still unknown. He said that only actual information about this will be taken action.
And the World Health Organization has suggested imposing controls on Christmas celebrations to prevent Omicron. At a regular briefing in Geneva, Switzerland, the head of the company said that Omicron was spreading faster than the Delta. He said even two-dose vaccinators were being infected with the virus.
“Omicron is spreading faster than the Delta,” said Tedros Adhanam. We have received a lot of information and evidence in this regard.
However, more information is needed to know the details about Omicron. Research is ongoing. More details about this variant will be known in the next two weeks. In some cases, the vaccine does not work to prevent omicron. This is a matter of great concern.
Omicron is spreading in Europe as well as Asian countries. The situation in India in particular is the worst. The country’s health experts fear that the number of infections in India may increase due to various festivals including Christmas.
A new type of coronavirus, Omicron, was first identified in South Africa last November. Since then, it has spread rapidly to at least 69 countries and regions around the world. Although Omicron is much more contagious than its predecessors, it is not yet certain how serious it can be.
