The Daily Star has a report on an otter that attacked a man while he was walking in a park.

According to the Guardian, ministers are told by The Guardian Additional “stricter” Covid national measures will be requiredOn or before 18 December, to stop Omicron infections from overwhelming the NHS. Leaked information from the UK Health Security Agency was said to have led to this warning being sent by the paper to Health Secretary Sajid Javid. According to the document, the spread of this variant was rapid in South Africa and it is possible that the need to take action to reduce pressures on health systems might be more urgent than what intuition would suggest.

The Times has also reported on new Covid rules. The Times reports that contacts who have been exposed to Omicron variant will need to be tested every day. Experts recommend that everyone proves they are free from coronavirus, before being allowed to go to public places.

It says that there’s no need for, or even abhorrence, another lockdown. It says that policy needs to be directed towards the core of “refuseniks” in vaccine policing, who are more vulnerable to Omicron than the vast majority of people clogging ICUs.

Daily Mail and Daily Express report on how important scientists consider booster jabs for Omicron protection. The Mail reported that experts have urged Britons not to take their top-up vaccines, in an effort to stop a flood of infections and to keep hospital admissions low.

The Express cautions that even small numbers of infections can cause serious illnesses and will lead to the NHS being overwhelmed. The Express warns that it would be dangerous and churlish to refuse to accept the invitation.

According to the Sun, booster use should be increased under the heading “Three jabs are best shots”. In its main editorial, the tabloid says that advisers to the government already hint at the possibility of tighter restrictions. If everyone is encouraged as quickly as possible and shows caution, “Plan C” doom-mongers can be “got knotted”.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the prime minister has been urged by leading figures to minimize the effects of additional restrictions on children and ensure schools open fully again after Christmas. A coalition of influential figures, including the former education ministers, and the Children’s Commissioner for England demanded that schools remain open “come as it may.” They want schools legally defined as “essential infrastructure”, which would place them at the same level with power stations, hospitals, and food retailers.

The Daily Mirror reports that four in five Americans are less likely than others to adhere to Covid restrictions. It is due to revelations made about Downing Street parties last December. The poll cites nearly 1,200 respondents. If Boris Johnson’s staff is found to be violating rules, a large majority of respondents say that they would not hesitate to flout them. According to the newspaper’s leader column, it says that Boris Johnson’s reckless attitude has led to a loss of trust in a critical moment for the fight against Covid.
