Avalanche of new covid cases caused by the Omicron variant begins to decline United Kingdom,
The British government looks closely at the numbers and sees signs that the height of the contagion wave is behind us. New cases of Kovid are decreasing in England,
London’s public health team says the capital is no longer the epicenter of Covid in the country. Infectionologist Kevin Fenton explained that the city, perhaps, is no longer at the peak of the Omicron outbreak.

One in ten Londoners is infected. The government knows that it is too early to set a trend. The English Scientific Council warned that year-end festivities and back to school could hamper the data.
