CM – UK hospitals will face « significant pressure » with the rise in viral infections: PM

0

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday that UK government hospitals will be under « significant pressure » in the coming weeks due to the surge in viral infections.

During a visit to a vaccine center, Prime Minister Johnson said that « the pressure on our NHS hospitals will be significant over the next few weeks and possibly even more » as « Omicron continues to rise across the country ».

Britain posted record numbers in the last few days of 2021 despite it has not published any figures for the whole country this year.

The Prime Minister said he was aware of the high absences of hospital staff due to Covid and added: « We are looking into what we can do to help the people in the to bring particularly badly affected areas « .

Around 50,000 NHS employees were absent from work on Friday because they were sick from Covid-19 or self-isolating, The Sunday Times reported.

Chris Hopson, executive director of NHS Providers, which serves hospitals in England, told Sky News that « pressure on hospitals outside London is now growing » after the capital had previously borne the brunt of the virus cases.

Prime Minister Johnson urged the public to get a booster vaccination, saying that seats were available for two million people this week.

The Prime Minister defended his decision to not to increase virus restrictions during the holidays in England, unlike other regions of the UK where nightclubs are closed and social gatherings are limited.

« Of course we are keeping track of all measures, but the mix we are doing right now , is correct in my opinion, « said the Prime Minister.

The Omicron variant » seems to be quite clearly less being more severe than Delta or Alpha, « PM Johnson said.

The number of people hospitalized with Covid in England was reported on Sunday at more than 13,000, the highest since February, including 769 on ventilators.

Education Minister Nadhim Zahawi said late Saturday the government would recommend that secondary school students wear face covers in classrooms and classrooms as a « temporary » measure when they return next week.

Prime Minister Johnson reiterated that « we they (masks) will not be kept longer than necessary in a day « .
