The United Kingdom urged its population to suspend the Christmas holidays.

Europe began to resume precautionary measures on Wednesday against the spread of the new omicron variant, given the possibility that this strain of the virus is more infectious and resists the protection of vaccines.

The restrictions – so far only imposed by the UK and Denmark – take place because scientists are still studying their possible impacts.

Ómicron was first identified in late November in South Africa. Following the announcement, countries around the world adopted travel bans for various nations on the African continent.

However, the virus had gained ground and was in almost a dozen countries when the border closures were announced.
