The first week of the new year has come and gone. Every day, an average of 2 lakh persons in the United Kingdom are infected with corona. According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), 1 in 15 people in the country is currently infected with covid.
The situation in the metropolis, London, is far worse. According to the ONS, one out of every ten Londoners has coronary artery disease. He stated, “Infection is on the rise.” Adolescents and youngsters who have recently reached maturity are the most affected. However, the number of old persons admitted to hospitals is increasing.
Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told a parliamentary session that the epidemic’s spread has never been so quick since it began. Boris has, however, loosened the rules for regular corona testing during internal tourism in the meanwhile. Tourists who have taken the full dose of the vaccine will no longer be required to have a corona test before flying to the United Kingdom. Furthermore, even if the test is performed, RT-PCR should not be performed; only a lateral flow test should be performed. On specific days, only individuals who have not been vaccinated should be tested. It’s also necessary to be alone.
Many people are unhappy with the government’s choice because there are 200,000 new infections every day. Boris is convinced that “I’m confident we’ll be able to overcome this massive tsunami of Omicron. It necessitates a prudent and reasonable decision.”
In Europe, the virus has struck Britain the hardest. More than 1 crore 11 lakh illnesses, 1.5 lakh deaths. In terms of total losses, France is second only to the United Kingdom.
However, the French are currently in a more difficult position than the British. In the previous 24 hours, 3 lakh 32 thousand 252 new people have been infected, according to the French Public Health Agency. In two weeks, the number of infections had tripled, according to Gabriel Atal, the country’s official spokesman. In France, there are 1,600 infected people for every 100,000 people.
In France’s hospitals, there are no more empty beds. The patient should not be admitted to the intensive care unit. According to the administration, the ICU is currently admitting more than 70% of the country’s main healthcare patients.
