Raab can’t make up his mind how many Omicron patients are in hospital

The Metro says Dominic Raab made a huge blunder this morning when he reported 250 people had been hospitalised with Omicron – but then quickly revised this number down to just nine.

The deputy prime minister told Sky News: ‘Last I saw it was in the low hundreds, 250 the last time I looked, but of course the data is being updated all the time.’

But the politician, who also holds the role of justice secretary, later massively back-pedalled.

In his next interview of the day, he told BBC Breakfast: ‘I know we’ve had one death. I think we’ve got nine people who are in hospital with it.
