Boris Johnson has rejected the Prime Minister’s calls to step up travel restrictions amid the emergence of the Omicron Covid-19 variant in the UK.

Nicola Sturgeon revealed in a briefing Monday morning that she and Welsh Prime Minister Mark Drakeford signed a joint letter to the Prime Minister calling for a Cobra meeting of the four nations to discuss Omicron.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesperson said: “We will normally confirm any plans for a Cobra meeting. Currently, there are no plans.

“We obviously speak very regularly to our counterparts in the decentralized administration and we will continue to coordinate our response with them.”

Downing Street has also refused calls by Sturgeon and Drakeford to have travelers’ self-isolation period extended until the result of a test on the eighth day after arriving in the UK.

The extension of the requirements would have a “detrimental effect” on the travel industry, No.10 said.
