On Tuesday, 28th December 2021, the United Kingdom and Wales have recorded around 130,000 new corona virus infections, which has been a record tally as the new cases of the Omicron Variant have been increasing and the responses of the four nations of the United Kingdom is continuing to diverge.
The government authorities in Cardiff and London have announced that, United Kingdom has recorded 129,471 new corona virus cases, and the devolved government in the country of Scotland has provisionally recorded 9,360 new corona virus infections and the country of Northern Ireland has not released any new data yet.
In the recent weeks, the United Kingdom has experienced daily covid-19 cases crossing the 100,000 mark across the country for the first time during the novel corona virus pandemic, as the Omicron variant has become the most dominant strain of the corona virus, and the United Kingdom has already been among the worst affected countries in the continent of Europe along with the death toll reaching to 150,000.
Followed by the recent increase in the corona virus infections, the devolved governments in the regions of Wales, North Ireland and Scotland each have introduced the renewed the covid-19 restrictions on the large hospitality and social gatherings.
But, Boris Johnson, prime minister of the United Kingdom, who has the responsibility for the health policy in the United Kingdom only has so far made the decisions against the devolved governments followed by the suit with stricter covid-19 restrictions.
