British Prime Minister; Boris Johnson

The United Kingdom has reported a record 78,610 daily COVID-19 infections amid surging transmissions of the Omicron Variant.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the country is now seeing an increase in hospitalization. He said that the increase is up 10% nationally, week by week, and up by almost a third a month.

He, however, says the UK is seeing signs of hope since it launched its Emergency Omicron Appeal on Sunday with a phenomenal national fightback.

Johnson stated that ‘people have responded with an amazing spirit of duty and obligation to others.’

He continued, ‘and I want to say that every one of you who rolls up your sleeve top gets jabbed, is helping this national effort, and I want to thank everyone.’
