The well being secretary says advised MPs that vaccinations have been transferring at a “blistering pace” with 17 million booster doses given.

Sajid Javid stated the UK was coming into winter in a “strong position” with falling numbers of hospital admissions and deaths.

But he stated the Omicron variant “spreads very rapidly” and he anticipated figures to rise past the 11 confirmed circumstances in Britain up to now.
