- There will be no lockdown in Britain even after one lakh cases per day
- PM Boris Johnson and Health Minister said – be careful and enjoy
- Omicron’s effect found mild in UK studies
The UK government said on Thursday that it would not impose new restrictions related to Kovid-19 until Christmas. The British government described early studies on the seriousness of the Omicron form as encouraging. Health Minister Sajid Javid said that studies show that there is less chance of hospitalization if infected with Omicron as compared to delta form of corona virus which is encouraging news.
Health Minister said – be alert and enjoy
The British health minister also said that it is not yet very clear how much this risk has reduced. Javid said that despite being careful, as we all are, people should be enjoying Christmas with their family and friends – of course, be careful.
No serious threat from Omicron in the UK!
The British health protection agency is about to publish new data on Omicron. It is based on a study by Imperial College London and Scottish researchers. In these two studies, it was found that the hospitalization requirement of patients infected with Omicron was between 20 and 68 percent compared to patients with the delta form.
Omicron was also seen light in South Africa
Data from South Africa has also found that Omicron may be a milder disease there. Omicron is now dominant in spreading corona virus infection in Britain. The cases of Kovid-19 in the country increased by about 60 percent in a week.
Study Supports AstraZeneca Booster Dose
According to a new study by researchers at the University of Oxford, the AstraZeneca and Pfizer-BioNtech vaccines of Kovid-19 significantly increased immunity against the Omicron form. In the laboratory study, antibody levels were compared in blood samples from people who had received both doses of the vaccine and those who had received the third dose.
Antibodies rising rapidly after the third dose
The study found that two doses provided significantly less protection against Omicron than earlier forms of the coronavirus, while antibodies increased rapidly after the third dose. The study also found that non-vaccinated people who have recovered from COVID-19 have little immunity against re-infection from Omicron. However, becoming seriously ill may give them some protection.
