UK authorities are preparing a plan to control the epidemic, which could start at Christmas and lead to two more weeks in prison. According to some British media, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will already have a ‘Plan C’ to prevent the spread of the new strain of Govt 19 if the number of victims continues to rise.
The new variant of the virus, Omigron, has seen an increase in the number of infections in the UK, with new cases doubling every two to three days. The Secretary of Health has already warned that the number of people affected by the new strain could reach one million by the end of December, in a situation that has already begun to affect the public health system. The number of patients admitted to London hospitals has increased by 28% in the last week alone.
According to the Financial Times, the British government already has a ‘Plan C’ to prevent the epidemic, which includes new and stronger regulations and compulsory imprisonment. According to Sky News and the BBC, there is the possibility of a new ‘lockdown’ from Christmas, which will include a ban on any meetings in closed spaces. Only occupational reasons and exercise of work activities are excluded. According to the Times, in this scenario, all restaurant activities and bars will be limited to terrace service.
British health experts, cited by the press, argue that the government should take drastic action “very soon”. It would be the general rule to restrict social interactions and all kinds of encounters in closed spaces, which, according to experts, believe that activities should be facilitated only in early spring.
