Preliminary studies published in the UK and South Africa indicate that the symptoms caused by the omicron variant appear to be less severe.

Early evidence indicates that fewer people need hospital treatment to deal with the virus, compared to the other variants, with a reduction ranging from 30% to 70%.

More than 100,000 cases have been reported in the UK in a single day for the first time since the pandemic began.
