In the European nations, the health care systems are getting in a devastating situation as there is a need for the team. Still, due to the increase in the new Omicron virus, the hospitalizations rates have been increased, but there is a shortage of people in the hospitals.

The National Medical Director at the National Health Service of Britain, Stephen Powis, “The condition of the increase in the cases of the new Omicron indicates more hospitalizations and fewer health workers at the hospitals.”

As per the World Health Organisation, on Thursday, a maximum of 9.5 million cases of the COVID were recorded worldwide in the previous week. Meanwhile, there is a 71% soar in the cases from the last 7-days. The number of deaths has also been decreased.

The Director-General of the World Health Organisation, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned the people not to treat the Omicron virus lightly.

According to the sources, in London on Friday, there were approximately 200 armed forces, 40 medical practitioners have been moved to the hospital so that they can provide proper care to the people, as there is a shortage of staff in the hospital. The reason for the lack of health care staff is that the COVID-19 infection and isolation infect them. However, in the coming week, 150 soldiers will be helping with the ambulance in England.
