The media company reported that the number of infections with the Omicron variant increased by 4,671 to a total of 10,017.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on Wednesday evening, held a press conference on the impending situation in the country, a topic that led to a revolution in Parliament the day before when 99 members of the Conservatives voted against the new government restrictions.
Johnson’s proposal certainly passed thanks to the support of the Social Democratic Labor Party. But it is increasingly questioned whether he has control of the situation.
Defend the tactics
The prime minister’s opinion was already called into question after an incoherent speech in November in which he quoted Lenin, humming like a car, comparing himself to Moses and making a lengthy presentation on children’s show character Greta Grace.
But at the press conference, he launched an attack and denied that the restrictions do not violate people’s personal privacy:
– I think that our approach is balanced, proportionate and correct for the country.
He promised to accelerate an ambitious booster program to slow the spread of omicrons. However, the additional restrictions (other than those already announced) are not relevant.
“I won’t change our policy,” Johnson declared with the “Condolences Me Now” sign on his platform, a call to the public to continue vaccinating themselves.
The UK’s chief medical officer during the pandemic, Professor Chris Whitty, has also appeared. His bleak message was that people should expect more infection records in the coming weeks.
The spread of the Omicron in England has been described as unrestricted.
It is spreading at an insane speed, in a way we have not seen before, and it is doubling every third day every day, Health Minister Sajid Javid told British media on Monday.
