In his Christmas message, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on his citizens to be vaccinated as a gift to their families and country.
The UK’s public health agency reported an absolute record of infections in the two years since the pandemic; his record was 119,789 positives in just one day, an incident that responded to the rapid spread of microns. Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that the pandemic was not over.
“After two years of the pandemic I can’t say we have overcome it, how can I do that when the micron appears and when we all know that we have to work together to stop the spread of this new variant? Johnson said in a televised Christmas message.
The president also asked his citizens to continue to vaccinate as a gift to ensure calm at the year-end party.
“While the time to buy gifts is theoretically running out, there is still an amazing thing you can give your family and the whole country, and that is getting a vaccine, be it a first, a second, or a booster. so that their next year’s party will be better than this,” he explained.
For now, preliminary data from the World Health Organization suggests that people infected with the Omicron variant of the coronavirus are 50% to 70% less likely to require hospitalization than those who test positive for the Delta strain. .
