Prime Minister Boris Johnson was reportedly set to make a Covid announcement on Tuesday, December 21 but it now seems that the press conference has not been confirmed. 

It is now expected that a press conference will be held before Christmas according to The Sun.

The omicron coronavirus variant is spreading rapidly across the UK and Boris Johnson had been reportedly set to make an announcement on Tuesday according to The Sun.


According to Dominic Rabb, at the moment there are no “hard and fast guarantees” that further restrictions will not be put in place before Christmas. This is despite the fact that Johnson said during the weekend that a lockdown will not be implemented before Christmas.

Reportedly a two-week circuit breaker lockdown could be on the cards for after Christmas. This would aim to control the spread of the omicron variant.

Boris previously spoke to the nation on Wednesday, December 15 alongside Professor Chris Whitty. The messages from this meeting were somewhat mixed.

Johnson has called on everyone to get their booster jabs as soon as possible to protect themselves and others from the omicron variant. Many people are worried that new restrictions will be put in place before Christmas.
