Covid: Rapid spread of Omicron in UK – watch Michael Gove warns the nation

New Covid measures kept under review, a Cabinet minister said.  Michael Gove warned that “very challenging new information” had been shared at a UK-wide Cobra meeting.  It was called amid the rapid spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant.

Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove said the new variant is doubling every two to three days in England.  And possibly even faster in Scotland.  Gove in self-isolation after coming into contact with Australia’s deputy prime minister who tested positive for Covid.

Michael Gove revealed that 30% of reported cases in London are of the Omicron variant.  – It’s recorded in 1,265 cases across the UK.  This after an additional 448 cases, the highest daily number so far – confirmed on Friday.

Fears growing about the spread of the variant.  People in Scotland urged to cancel Christmas parties. Also households of people who contract coronavirus asked to isolate for 10 days.  This regardless of their vaccination status or a negative PCR test.

Mr Gove’s stark comments come on the day the UK recorded the highest number of new Covid-19 infections in one day, for 11 months.

Stay safe.
