The UK recorded it’s highest number of daily Covid cases yet on Wednesday (15 December) with 78,610 cases reported. Boris Johnson urged people to “get boosted now” and England’s chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, warned that Covid records “will be broken a lot” in the next few weeks due to the Omicron variant and its “phenomenal” speed of transmission.

France has today announced that it will tighten Covid restrictions for travellers arriving from the UK. All non-residents will have to give a compelling reason for travelling to France from Saturday. Tourism and non-urgent work do not qualify as good enough reasons. Confirmed Omicron cases are currently much higher in the UK than in France.
