However, Javid said that ministers will not take any new measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus in the coming days.

“There will be no more measures before the new year,” Javid told reporters. “As we enter the new year, of course, we will then see if further action is necessary.”

The highly communicable omicron variant of the coronavirus now accounts for about 90% of cases across England, he said, urging people to celebrate the New Year with caution.

The government’s attention is focused on the number of patients hospitalized with omicron after first data last week suggested that the variant carries a lower risk of admission.
