All contacts of suspected Omicron cases must self-isolate for 10 days
Two people in Brentwood, Essex and Nottinghamshire found to have tested positive for the new variant. Officials are carrying out mass testing in affected areas to identify further cases.
While we don’t know how effective current vaccines will be, the PM is “confident” this Christmas will be better than last year’s.
What this Christmas might look like will be on many people’s minds.
But at the briefing just now, Professor Chris Whitty also made a plea for the country to “raise a glass” this festive season to the scientists who have produced the vaccines.
