Listen to the news
The corona wave in the UK, caused by the Omigron variant, now seems to be coming to a halt. In the last 24 hours, 94 thousand new corona cases have been reported here, which is two and a half times less than the 2 lakh 46 thousand corona cases detected on December 29. In addition, daily corona exposures continue to decline. In this case, the British government has now decided to withdraw the restrictions imposed in the wake of the Omigron wave. The announcement was made by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“More than 90 per cent of people over the age of 60 in Britain are affected by the corona’s booster dose.
Will the restrictions be lifted?
According to the government, the restrictions expire on January 26. That is, from January 27, the restrictions on citizens will no longer apply. That is, those who leave home for any work now do not need a govt pass. Apart from this, the rules for making it compulsory for people to wear masks will also come to an end. However, the government may now continue to enforce masks in public places.
In the midst of the Omicron wave, the British government advised companies to provide employees with the convenience of working from home. However, from January 27, the guidelines in this regard will also be withdrawn. That is, employees will go to their office and work. However, if a person is diagnosed with a corona infection, the legal rule for isolating him or her will apply.
