Covid-19: Omicron Spreading at Breakneck Pace, According to French PM
According to French Prime Minister Jean Castex, the Omicron form is “growing at lightning pace” throughout Europe and will likely become dominant in France by the start of next year.
He spoke on Friday, just hours before France placed stringent travel restrictions on British citizens entering the country. With approximately 15,000 confirmed Omicron cases as of Friday, the UK has been the hardest struck in the region thus far.
Health experts across the continent are preparing for a wave of diseases. On Friday, administrations in Germany, the Republic of Ireland, and the Netherlands announced new restrictions in an attempt to stem the tide.
