LONDON – Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that Britain could endure the omicron wave of the coronavirus without re-entering lockdown, but he added that the coming weeks would be challenging.

“We have a chance to ride out this Omicron wave without shutting down our country,” Johnson said at a news conference.

“But the weeks ahead are going to be challenging, both here in the UK and across the world.”
