Sajid Javid reveals 90% lower risk of hospitalization with Omicron than Delta


A killer combination of boosters and breakthrough antiviral drug has put the country in a much better position to fight Covid, he said.

Fears of any more crippling restrictions are rapidly fading and today have been opposed by ministers.

Speaking during a visit to King’s College Hospital Mr. Javid implores everyone to continue the third attacks with an upbeat update on the most recent findings.

“There are some encouraging signs,” he said. Now we know that Omicron is less severe.

“When you get an increased chance of being hospitalized, our latest analysis shows it’s almost 90% less.”

And in a wake-up call, he said 70% of the patients at the ICU he visited today were unvaccinated.

The ministers are throwing the kitchen sink on the boost program, which Sun’s Jab Military Campaign is helping to speed up charging.

In the main developments:

  • More than 35 million people now have a strengthening movement
  • 178,000 new cases reported and 228 new deaths
  • One Minister said Now is not the time for more restrictions
  • Mark Drakeford said there was no change to the draconian rules in Wales


Mr Javid praised the UK’s lead in rocket boosters, antivirals and testing in Europe.

But he warned that we are not yet out of the woods amid mounting pressure on hospitals.

Mr Javid warned “we are still seeing an increase in hospital admissions, especially with the increased case rates in the older age groups worryingly and I think we have to be honest, and when we look at the NHS, there will be a few weeks to come.”

Ministers are defying calls for doomster to cause more restrictions and are sticking with their “balanced” Plan B approach.

PM this week all but excluding the return to all-fat lock and stated that he was not “shutting down our country again”.

Downing Street is increasingly hoping to waive Plan B measures such as working from home and mandatory face coverings when they are reviewed at the end of the month.

A senior government source told The Sun that the Cabinet is united in wanting to find the curb – with the exception of Mr Javid, who has a “lone voice” against.

They said: “It is understandable that he has that opinion because he has hospitals and doctors constantly on duty.

“But no one else wants to see them expand while the data benefits us.”

Mr Javid also opposes tearing up the travel rules as it could lead to more variations going undetected and forcing more lockdowns.

The Health Secretary is said to have warned Boris Johnson before holiday checks were eased this week – but was dismissed.

Addressing today’s reports, he said: “I would like to see travel more open. I want to see it be as easy as possible, and it should always be a balanced and proportional approach. .”

Business Secretary Paul Scully said today the Government “doesn’t see the need” for the new measures even though troops have been deployed to ease the load on hospitals.

And thanks to the increased deployment that helps keep society open, he declared: “The year 2022 will be much brighter than 2021.”

It comes like Daily cases have decreased today for Tuesday consecutively, an additional 178,250 cases of infection were reported.

New data suggests a critical Covid R rate could be as high as 1.6 in some parts of the UK.

An additional 229 deaths were also reported on Friday, bringing the unfortunate total since the start of the pandemic to 149,744.

About 200 troops have been sent to hospital to help prevent the absence of sick or quarantined employees.

Mr Scully told TalkRadio: “Having the military working in our hospitals is having more agency to deal with the pressures of the NHS.

“It’s not troops on the streets in combat and weapons or anything like that. It’s really just helping those personnel put pressure on.”

Contrary to the gloom, First Minister Mark Drakeford today announced he is abiding by tough restrictions in Wales.

Describing the wave as a “storm”, he lashed out at the Westminster Government for not acting on similar curbs.
