Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “U.K. Officials Expect ‘Dramatic Increase’ of Covid Deaths, Hospitalizations” – below is their description.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned the U.K. is facing a “tidal wave” of omicron infections and set an end-of-year deadline for the country’s booster vaccination program.
“Everyone eligible aged 18 and over in England will have the chance to get their booster before the New Year,” Johnson told the nation in a hastily arranged address on Sunday night.
Johnson, who has been the subject of scathing headlines over his handling of the pandemic, tried to change the narrative in a somber address. While he is accelerating a plan to deliver booster jabs, in practice he’s bringing the deadline forward by a month.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
