Stocks in London have started the session a tad higher even after the Prime Minister warned that the country was facing a “tidal wave” of Covid-19 infections due to the new Omicron variant.
“There is a tidal wave of Omicron coming, and I’m afraid it is now clear that two doses of vaccine are simply not enough to give the level of protection we all need,” Boris Johnson said on Sunday night.
Everyone aged 18 and over in the UK would have the chance to receive a booster shot before the New Year, he added.
Just hours before, the UK had raised its Covid-19 alert level from three to four.
