The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson has urged public sector officials to create “contingency plans” as 25% of employees are out of work due to the corona virus infection.

Directors have to make “solid products” in “worst situations” and expect 10%, 20% or 25% of casualties, especially in areas where you can’t work from home, such as health and education. .

The government fears that the impact of the Omigron variant will be felt by workers. The new strain is more contagious, increasing the number of inmates.

In recent days, the UK has recorded nearly 190,000 infections on New Year’s Day – the numbers are not updated as often as usual due to the holidays – but some experts say the peak could be reached soon.

Minister calls for use of masks in schools in the UK

As part of efforts to curb the spread of Omigran, the Minister of Education, Nadeem Jahawi, on Sunday asked middle school students to wear masks in classrooms as they return from the UK’s year-end holiday. It is mandatory to wear masks in social areas (other parts of the UK have their own measurements).

The minister also promised to install 7,000 air purifiers in poorly ventilated areas, but education associations say the move is not enough as there are at least 300,000 classrooms. These measures will be in effect until January 26, although a review of the situation can be expected until the 4th.
