Sajid Javid was "told by gloomy health officials" to "trigger Plan C restrictions within a WEEK."

Health officials have told SAJID Javid to implement Plan C restrictions within a WEEK, according to reports.

Doomsayers at the UK Health and Security Agency allegedly told the Health Secretary that Omicron poses a threat to the NHS, as 5,000 Britons could be admitted to hospitals every day.

According to documents obtained by the Guardian, the tough action is "needed in December."

Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland's fearmongering First Minister, echoed his warning, saying a "tsunami" of the more infectious strain is on the way.

MPs are pressuring ministers not to impose more restrictions to combat Omicron.

"Rumours of a Plan C are a hideous abuse of the nation's mental health, and will devastate the economy," Tory MP Steve Baker said.

Downing Street has acknowledged the existence of a Plan C, despite warnings that Plan B will not suffice.

According to a study that boosts morale, a third jab can combat Omicron and save us from more lockdown pain.

"This data demonstrates the importance of boosters," Mr Javid said.

There are now 1,898 confirmed cases of the variant, up from 633 the day before, but the UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) says thousands more are likely.

However, as Omicron sweeps the country, up to 75,000 more Britons could die of Covid this winter, according to doom-mongering scientists.

Professor Paul Hunter of the University of East Anglia's Department of Medicine said that any model is only as good as its assumptions, and that one key assumption in this model is that the severity of disease outcomes for Omicron and Delta are the same.

"While we won't know for sure for a few weeks, preliminary evidence from South Africa suggests that Omicron causes less severe disease than Delta."

"There's also preliminary data, which hasn't been peer reviewed, suggesting that while Omicron mutations are enough to evade antibody, T cell immunity would be less harmed."

"T cell immunity is thought to be more important for reducing the risk of severe disease than for reducing the risk of milder nose and throat infections."

"If Omicron is indeed associated with less severe disease, as I believe is likely to be the case," he said, "then these models will likely overestimate hospital admissions and deaths, possibly significantly."

Prof Hunter believes these models "overstate" the risk of hospital admissions and deaths, and that the "worst case" scenarios are "unlikely to be seen," according to him.

"We can expect these models to be refined as better data becomes available in the coming weeks," he added.
