Then he modified later, “I know we’ve had one death and nine people who are hospitalized with [omicron].”

Raab said he misheard

Mr Raab asserted that he “misinterpreted” or “misheard” host questions about hospitalisations and delivered an inaccurate number.

A Whitehall official told that the newest figure stays 10 hospital cases with omicron, pending a further update from the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).

The figures conveyed by the UKHSA on Monday showed 10 people in hospital with omicron. Health secretary Sajid Javid also spoke on Monday there were 10 hospitalisations with the variant.

Covid restrictions in Christmas and New Year

Meanwhile, Mr Raab stays with additional Covid restrictions being considered for Christmas or New Year to deal with the rise in new variant cases.

“These issues are always discussed. But we have got plan B which is required over the Christmas period.”
