The Prime Minister is expected to make a key announcement on the campaign to ramp up and urge Britons to crash

It is understood that the Prime Minister is set to make a major announcement about a ramp-up campaign and the launch of a “national vaccination mission” to limit the spread of the Omicron variant.

He is expected to warn that the strain of the virus will soon become the dominant variant of the coronavirus in the UK – but is not expected to announce any new Covid restrictions in the pre-recorded address.

But with The UK’s Covid alert level today increased to four as Omicron cases continue to spike, the Prime Minister will address the country on the prevalence of the variant and give an update on the jab rollout.

The alert has been raised to second highest, meaning transmission of the virus is “high” and pressure on the NHS is “widespread and substantial or growing”.

The UK’s Chief Medical Officers and NHS England’s National Chief Medical Officer have recommended that the alert level be raised as Omicron poses a “rapidly increasing risk to health and public services”. .

Moving to level five would mean there is a “physical risk” to overwhelmed healthcare services.

On Wednesday, the Prime Minister asked the country to announce a Plan B – mandating the wearing of masks in some indoor facilities and introducing vaccine passports.

But some fear scientists have said more action needs to be done before Christmas.

Today, Omicron cases increased 65% in 24 hours when the British were urged to receive Covid-boosted shots that saved their lives.

An additional 1,239 Omicron cases were recorded today, bringing the total number of confirmed variant cases to 3,137.

The UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) said mutation cases had increased over the past day as concerns continued to grow for Omicron.

Yesterday, 633 new cases of the variant were recorded – meaning mutant cases are on the rise with 1,239 infections today.

On Saturday, 54,073 more cases of Covid-19 infection were reported, bringing the total to 10,771,444.

There were 132 more deaths, bringing the total number of Covid-19 deaths to 146,387 people.

However, the health authority has provided the first batch of UK-based evidence for the vaccine’s effectiveness against the virus strain – suggesting that three shots offer much better protection than two noses.

And boosters will be key to protecting your loved ones this festive season – like The Jabs Army of the Sun campaign to urge Britons to get a third vaccination.

With the number of cases on the rise, MPs are said to have been warned to be “on hold” to vote on new restrictions over the Christmas week.

Plan C could be enacted before Christmas as MPs have been told to prepare for Parliament’s recall on December 21 if the Covid situation turns around, it has been reported.

DON’T WANT IT

Meanwhile, Sajid Javid was asked activate Plan C restrictions for a WEEK by bleak health officials, it was reported.

The Health Secretary has been accused by doom-expectants at the UK Health and Security Service that Omicron risks overwhelming the NHS as 5,000 Britons could be hospitalized each day.

However – a third stab could work against Omicron and save us from more low back pain, a mental boost study says.

Experts say any two doses plus the booster Pfizer can provide up to 75% protection.

Three shots also better protect against severe illness or death – but two doses soon won’t prevent even a third of cases.

“This data shows the importance of boosters,” said Javid.

Mary Ramsay, director of jabs at UKHSA, said: “These early estimates suggest that, several months after the second jab, the risk of catching Omicron is higher than that of Delta.

“But the data show that this risk is significantly reduced after booster vaccine.

“We expect the vaccine to show greater protection against serious complications of Covid-19.”

Coronavirus in numbers – The number of cases increased by 48,854 cases with an additional 52 deaths
