Dr Jenny Harries, UKHSA chief executive, said: "Increased case detection through focused contact tracing has led to more cases of the Omicron variant being identified and confirmed, as we have seen in other countries globally. "We are continuing to monitor the data closely. Teams nationally and locally are working at pace to identify and trace all close contacts of every Omicron case. It is critical that anyone with Covid-19 symptoms isolates and gets a PCR test immediately. "We have started to see cases where there are no links to travel, suggesting that we have a small amount of community transmission. That's why it's so important that everybody, everywhere, takes simple steps to protect themselves from infection. "Please wear face coverings in line with government guidance, let in fresh air when mixing indoors and wash your hands regularly. "Vaccination is critical to help us bolster our defences against this new variant so please get your first, second, third or booster jab as soon as you are eligible to protect yourself, your families and your communities."
