Omicron Case in UK Rises Again

The case of the omicron variant of Covid-19 in the UK on Thursday, December 24, 2021, has increased and has been detected in almost all regions in the UK. The daily cases of the omicron variant of Covid-19 on Thursday, December 24 were recorded at 119,789, an increase compared to the previous day, which was 106,122 cases.

Many industrial and transportation sectors are struggling with staff shortages. Because employees who are sick with Covid-19, must undergo self-quarantine. A number of hospitals in the UK warned of the risk of impact on patient safety.

Ummatimes - The Omicron variant of Covid-19 is believed to be rapidly contagious, causing the positive cases of Covid-19 in the country in the last seven days to increase. UK Government data shows that there is an increase in cases of the corona virus to 678,165 cases.

Britain's ruling party, the Conservative Party, appears to be struggling to limit the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the UK economy. The UK government on Wednesday, 23 December 2021, announced a reduction in self-quarantine from 10 days to a week.

The changes to the rules are intended so that people can return to work as soon as possible. The new rules apply to UK citizens who have tested negative for Covid-19 twice in a row and are in self-quarantine for seven days.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, that this year's Christmas was better than last year's, ignoring the new Covid-19 prevention rules before Christmas. Johnson said it was still unclear whether omicron had caused the condition of Covid-19 patients to worsen and how the number of Covid-19 patients had been hospitalized.

If the UK situation worsens, it will impose new Covid-19 precautions after Christmas, which will fall on Saturday, December 25, 2021. The local governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have already announced they will impose a number of post-Christmas bans.
