British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday confirmed the country's first death from the Omicron variant of COVID-19 as long queues were seen outside walk-in vaccination centres across the UK with people queuing for their booster vaccine doses.

During a visit to a vaccine clinic in west London, Johnson warned against the complacency of the mildness of the variant and also refused to rule out bringing in further restrictions.
