Boris Johnson releases key health data TODAY over New Year’s power breaker fears

BORIS Johnson is today working on make or break Covid data that could see new restrictions introduced after Christmas.

Key statistics about hospital admissions could throw off balance on a circuit breaker if scientists fear Omicron is at risk of entering the NHS.

Millions of people are praying Boris Johnson doesn't bypass the bomb's circuit breakers restrictions.

The Prime Minister has ruled out more measures this Christmas but warned he could act before the New Year if the pandemic picture turns bleak.

He stressed that the best weapon in the arsenal was a vaccine and urged the British to buy boosters.

It’s more important than ever to sign up for The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign and help fast-charge the ramp-up deployment.

Millions of people are desperate to see 2021 with a big bang and are praying Prime Minister Johnson doesn’t bypass restrictions on the bomb’s circuit breakers.

Much of the decision is expected to depend on the strain on hospitals in London, the epicenter of the Omicron outbreak.

Ministers are said to hope to stop pulling the trigger on more curbs if hospital admissions stay below 400 in the capital.

Mr Johnson will also soon be presented with encouraging findings from government scientists that Omicron is lighter than Delta.

The UK Health Security Agency report leaked on the Politico website shows that people are much less at risk of actually getting sick than other mutations.

Care Minister Gillian Keegan said the data on the severity of Omicron was the “missing piece” the Government had been waiting for before deciding how to act.

An announcement on the adoption of circuit breakers could be made as soon as this weekend or delayed until after Christmas.

In the main developments:

Ms Keegan said she had not seen the UKSA report but said the findings were an important indicator of whether new restrictions were needed.

“Well, that’s one of the missing pieces of data we’ve been waiting for. We ask for it every day,” she said.

“I’m looking forward to receiving it. But we haven’t officially received it yet.”

However, the Tory chief warned that the situation was still unclear and told Brits not yet sent out NYE party invitations.

When asked if the hosts should start making arrangements, Ms. Keegan told LBC: “There’s uncertainty. So if you can’t change your plans quickly, then don’t change your plan quickly, then don’t change your plan. maybe think about it.

“But there’s uncertainty, we can’t predict what the data will tell us before we have the data.

“We’re trying to take a balanced and proportionate approach so people can meet their families over Christmas to try and plan a few things.”

The Prime Minister last night said the current evidence did not “justify tougher measures” before Christmas but hinted at a crackdown after the festivities.

However, there are signs that cases could ease slightly after daily cases hovered around 90,000 for the fifth day in a row.

Professor Paul Hunter said: “The numbers over the past few days appear to have gone up and possibly even down.”

However, Ms Keegan said Ministers had not yet been informed that Omicron was past its peak.

Positive London hospital admission data also gives rise to hope we can avoid the New Year’s circuit breaker.

Government sources told I report Harsh measures may not be introduced if the number of hospitalized people staying in the capital falls below 400 a day.

Restrictions are being considered to keep the NHS from being overwhelmed in the coming weeks, with Omicron cases remaining high.

However, Mr Johnson is willing to continue studying hospital data before making a decision on what measures, if any, may be needed.

In the capital, four out of five tested cases are Omicron, as the mutant bug continues to spread across the UK.

Hospitalization in London is not the only metric used to assess stress severity – it is an important part of decision making.

Mr Johnson said that “we cannot rule out further measures after Christmas”.

Downing Street Insiders refused to rule out tougher rules as soon as the weekend.

Mr Johnson urged families to gather together to protect their grandmother and grandfather from Covid by opening windows to “keep fresh air circulating”.

Health Minister Sajid Javid said: “The situation is changing rapidly, there is more data here not only from within the country but from abroad – we monitor all that data and discuss it with stakeholders. our expert consultation.

“As the Prime Minister has said, although there is no need for any further restrictions before Christmas, we will certainly keep the situation under review.”

Yesterday’s announcement means Football gift giving day will continue with crowds in the UK – unlike in Scotland, where games will be limited to 500 fans.

It is reported that 90% of Covid patients in hospital intensive care units are not vaccinated.

Health Secretary Gillian Keegan said the government ‘will not hesitate’ to introduce further Covid restrictions ‘if it is required to keep people safe’ from Omicron Boris Johnson releases key health data TODAY over New Year’s power breaker fears
