At least one patient has died with the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the prime minister has said.
Speaking during a visit to a vaccination clinic near Paddington, in west London, Boris Johnson said: “Sadly yes Omicron is producing hospitalisations and sadly at least one patient has been confirmed to have died with Omicron.
“So I think the idea that this is somehow a milder version of the virus, I think that’s something we need to set on one side and just recognise the sheer pace at which it accelerates through the population. So the best thing we can do is all get our boosters.”
The confirmation comes after Health Secretary Sajid Javid earlier told Sky News that “about 10” people are currently in hospital in the UK with the new Omicron variant.
