Another 15,363 instances of the variant are confirmed yesterday with it now accounting for 71.6% of all cases in the UK.

And had 90,629 cases across the UK yesterday, with numbers topping 90,000 on four of the past five days.

But Strengthening implementation of the NHS is heading to the rescue, reaching a dizzying pace with another 897,979 delivered on Monday and a total of nearly 30 million.

Professor Pearse, an intensive care physician in London, said it was important for everyone to get vaccinated.

There are currently about 757 Covid users on ICU Breathing Machine across the UK – 11% of the 6,900 patients.

And Professor Pearse said the uninjured in their 20s and 30s are ending up in critical care wards with the virus.

“About 80 to 90 percent of the patients we have are unvaccinated,” he said.

“Most of us are vaccinated, so you will always get a few patients with Covid even though they were vaccinated.

“But what we found is that the risk of getting sick and going to the hospital, and then being in the intensive care unit, is much higher for people who aren’t vaccinated.

“Almost all of our unvaccinated patients who are healthy enough to speak to say they are worried about vaccinations, or don’t know who to trust. The most common thing they say is ‘Can I get the vaccine now?’ “

NHS clinics are now operating in full tilt, hit almost a million people every day to try and start new variations.

Two thirds of all eligible UK adults have experienced a third stab with our help Give Britain a boost campaign.

In total, 29.9 million people across the UK and 25.1 million in the UK have been boosted, with 5.3 million launched in the last week alone.

“It is testament to the incredible work of all our NHS staff and volunteers. And I cannot thank people around the country for their community spirit in working towards ensuring vital protection for themselves and their loved ones. ”

Figures from UK Health Security Agency Last night saw a total of 60,508 confirmed Omicron cases in the UK with another 143,000 being last tested.

So far 133 confirmed cases have been hospitalized, although the number is likely higher.

Fourteen people were diagnosed with Omicron dead. The situation is worst in London, where by far almost a third of all infections with the mutant strain in the UK.

The number of Covid hospitalizations is on the rise, with another 245 on Sunday, the highest since February.

NHS bosses have ordered hospitals to use up as many hospital beds as possible and scale up intensive care units in preparation for the January spike.

Gloomy modelers from the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) warn the number of Covid hospital admissions in the UK could hit 2,000 a day by the end of the year, as the new strain of bacteria causes out.

VACCINATION has always been our only real way out of the pandemic.

We all work together and my health choices about immunizations can affect your health.

And often, it will be the people closest to us, the people we love and care about most, who will be most at risk if we choose not to get vaccinated.

All of my family is vaccinated, including my daughters, because I know it’s the best way to keep us all safe.

I understand that many people have questions and I recommend that they talk to a doctor or pharmacist who knows about vaccines before they decide not to have them.

The NHS is waiting to see a very large wave of people hospitalized with Covid because there have been so many infections recently.

London is being affected first but we expect it to spread across the country.

The great uncertainty is whether Omicron is more vaccine resistant than older variants.

But even if it doesn’t work out well, it’s really important to get vaccinated and stay healthy.

In the ICU, my colleagues around the country and I find that about four out of five Covid patients, possibly more, are unvaccinated – and an occasional few have immune problems.

Obviously most of us are vaccinated, so you will always see a few patients with Covid even if they have been vaccinated.

But what we’re seeing is that the risk of getting sick and going to the hospital, and then being in the intensive care unit, is much higher for people who aren’t vaccinated.

Almost all of our unvaccinated patients who are well enough to speak say they are worried about vaccinations, or don’t know who to trust.

But the most common thing they say is, “Can I get the vaccine now?”

Unfortunately, once you have Covid, you have to wait until you are better before you can get vaccinated, so I advise people not to wait until it is too late.

Critical units will have to take over other areas of the hospital and deploy more nurses if patient numbers grow, meaning care in other departments could shrink.

Professor Pearse said: “The big worry is that we won’t have enough trained ICU staff. We’re having to add nurses to people from other areas like operating theatres, so this is definitely having a big impact on the other things the NHS does and takes care of other patients.

“So even if your problem is not Covid, it will affect your healthcare. But I am optimistic that we have had a lot of experience dealing with Covid and the staff is very good. We know we can deal with this. ”

There are also positive signs on the data front, with the jump in cases seen last week now calming down. Positive tests have not risen above 93,000 since hitting the huge number last Friday.

Professor Paul Hunter, from the University of East Anglia, said: “It seems good that the number of possible cases has dropped.

“The case count has been decent for six days now so I’m sure we won’t see exponential growth anymore.”

Experts say people’s behavior has changed before Christmas, with more staying at home giving the virus a chance to spread.

But they warn the risk remains high and the infections are still spreading rapidly. Sir Jeremy Farrar, a former member of Sage, said the rate of contagion was “astonishingly high”.

“My personal view is that I think we can wait for the moment until more restrictions are officially put in place,” he said. But each of us today can do a lot to make opportunities less restrictive even further.

“More data will be available today and tomorrow and I will act on that data if transmission continues to increase and if hospitalizations are increasing nationally.”
