Kuwait tells citizens to leave UK over Omicron concerns

The daily number of new COVID-19 infections across Britain rose to a record 189,846

  


The Kuwaiti embassy in the United Kingdom has encouraged its citizens to leave the country due to a "significant and unprecedented" increase in Omicron cases there.

The daily number of new COVID-19 infections across Britain rose to a record 189,846 on Friday, far higher than during previous peaks.

New restrictions in England to slow the spread of COVID-19 will only be introduced as a last resort, health minister Sajid Javid said on Saturday.

"We must give ourselves the best chance of living alongside the virus and avoiding strict measures in the future," he said.
