Pressure is growing on the UK government to bring in restrictions before Christmas to counter the rising threat from the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus.

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson held a two-hour meeting with his cabinet on Wednesday to talk about the spread but after the lengthy discussions, he did not reveal any new measures.

A former member of the Sage scientific group which advises the UK government says the rate at which Omicron spreads is more of a threat than its severity.

Sir Jeremy Farrar of the Wellcome Trust described its spread as “unbelievably fast” and transmission rates as “eye-wateringly high”.

  34. Lockdown is violation of human rights

  35. Within 2 weeks 4 people tested positive for covid but when they done a pcr test it said negative so it's not accurate.

    The government is making a fake emergency so they can take our human rights away and make us all have to go on benefits so the government can control how we live just like north korea

  36. They can threaten me all they want,I want break under pressure

  37. The hospital's are screwed without COVID and that the actually the real issue now

  38. The government shouldn't bring in any more restrictions and should be lifting any restrictions that may still be in place. The virus has been shown to have mild symtoms and isn't any more dangerous to a common cold or flu. Also people shouldn't be getting vaccinated if they think it'll help someone else, a vaccine is to help you the person who is getting it they're designed to help prevent you from ending up in hospital if you get sick. They have nothing to do with preventing you from ever catching the virus or spreading it.

  39. Why does the BBC ban comments on their “reports” on the right wing ?

  40. Welcome to the Jungle !! Or Jingle.

  41. Prayer is the only Cure for life:

    “Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, if You do not forgive us and (not) have mercy on us we certainly would be of the losers”. And after repenting they should say: “Oh Allah, I am Your servant, I ask you by the fact there is no God except You, and by the fact of Your mercy that You ordained upon YourSelf, and by the fact of greatness of the Bliss of YourSelf’s good-pleasure that is greater than the bliss of Your heavenly-garden that you heal me from the chastisement of corona or remove it away from me surely I believe in the true caller from You. Oh Allah, remove Your chastisement from every approach away from us so we would follow the path of Truth from You, and to make us steadfast on fulfilling what we promised You — O Who comes between man and his heart, surely we do not have except Your mercy that You ordained upon YourSelf. Indeed, if You do not forgive us and (not) have mercy on us we would surely be of the losers. Oh our Allah, You have said in Your decisive Book: {And your Lord says: Pray to Me, I will answer you.}Truthful Allah the Great [Ghãfer] 40:60. Supplication-prayer and turning (close to Allah) is from me while responding is from You. Indeed, You never violate Your promise. Our Lord, glory be to You, surely Your promise is ever True and You are the Most Merciful than all who have mercy. O our Allah, make us steadfast upon fulfilling what we promised You to follow Allah’s global caller khalifa of Allah in the land; the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni. O our Allah, make sending him as favor upon us and not affliction against us because of our turn away from the true call of the Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni”.
