Boris Johnson announced measures to mitigate the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 in the UK, including mandatory masks and PCR tests on arrival from foreign countries.

South African Health Minister Dr Joe Phaahla told LBC that university students were behind the spread of the Omicron variant in South Africa

The head of South Africa's Medical Association Dr Angelique Coetzee declared that the international response to the new variant was 'totally over the top'.

Dr Susan Hopkins of Public Health England told Tom Swarbrick scientists are "concerned" about whether the Omicron variant could evade vaccines.

Leading scientific adviser Dr Mike Tildesley said that it's too early to say whether the variant is able to evade vaccines.
