It comes as recorded Covid cases remained high over the Christmas period after a record number earlier in December. Meanwhile, cases of the new Omicron variant surge.

However, hospitalisations due to the virus appear to remain low, in a sign that the Covid-19 vaccine is lessening the risk of serious illness.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “We look at the data on a daily basis, that hasn’t changed over the Christmas period, but there will be no further measures before the new year.

“We won’t be taking any further measures, of course people should remain cautious as we approach new year celebrations and take a lateral flow test if that makes sense, celebrate outdoors if you can, have some ventilation indoors if you can.

“Please remain cautious and when we get into the new year of course we will see then if we do need to take any further measures but nothing more until then, at least.”
