Modellers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have produced some modelling looking at omicron and potential transmission and hospitalisations.
They use models fitted to England data and produce scenarios in the absence and presence of measures.
Please note this data is a preprint, so it is early work that has not yet been through peer-review and is not published in a journal.
Journalists dialled in to this briefing to hear from the scientists and to ask any questions.
