Daily high due to Omicron edition: More than 100,000 new infections in Great Britain for the first time

For the first time in the UK, more than 100,000 coronavirus infections have been recorded in a day. According to the government website, the country, which is facing a massive wave of Omicrons, recorded 106,122 new infections on Wednesday.

Despite worrying developments, Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday ruled out further tightening of coronavirus measures for most of England for the festive season. The government wants to wait until there is clear data on the number of hospitalizations with a sharp rise in infections.

However, experts warn that it may be too late for the data to be clear. In addition, staff shortages in hospitals and public transport are increasingly creating difficulties as many workers become infected and self-isolate. So the government announced on Wednesday that it would reduce the period of isolation from ten to seven days.

However, the regional governments of Scotland and Wales announced further restrictions. For example, Scotland has upper limits on the number of visitors to sporting events from Boxing Day. For Wales, the government announced a limit of 30 people for indoor events and 50 for outdoor events. (dpa)
