Covid LIVE: UK calls urgent G7 meeting as Omicron sparks new lockdown panic

Health secretary Sajid Javid will today give an urgent Covid-19 update on the rapidly spreading Omicron variant. 

Three cases of the variant have so far been identified in the UK.

Mr Javid will give more information on the new restrictions announced by Boris Johnson on Saturday, such as a return to face coverings in shops and on public transport. 

Speaking to the media over the weekend Mr Javid said it “would be irresponsible to make guarantees” that Britons will not be forced to drastically change their Christmas plans.
