So far, 261 cases have been reported in England. While 71 cases have been reported in Scotland, 4 cases have been reported in Wales.
Sajid Javid said, "There are many cases that have no travel history. We have come to the result that community spreads are being seen in many places in England. We are not leaving anything to luck. He said, "When scientists around the world are collecting news about the new variants, we plan to strengthen our defence in front of the new variant of corona in due course of time.
However, Javid also referred to data released by the UK Health Protection Agency, in which experts have expressed the possibility of Omicron threat being lower than the delta variant. He said, "It is also not yet clear how severe the infection is and the impact of the vaccine on it. So we can't say for sure whether this variant will derail us of recovery or not.
