#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: ” No shutdown!” declares the front page of the Daily Express. It quotes the prime minister as saying the battle against Covid is “far from over” but “we can find a way to live with it” and cases today below confirm UK heading for 250,000 per day

The prime minister’s assertion also came on a record-breaking day of 218,724 cases, as 12 hospitals declared critical incidents, the Metro says. But Mr Johnson said he was sticking with current restrictions because soaring case numbers were not matched by deaths, the paper reports.

Several of the front pages lead with the prime minister’s hope that the country can “ride out” the Omicron wave without bringing in more restrictions. Despite Boris Johnson’s optimism, the Sun notes that the large numbers isolating are hitting transport and schools.

BBC News: Staff:

The Times says health service leaders are divided, with some saying that a surge of elderly patients was not materialising while others suggested that hospitals were starting to be overwhelmed. It also quotes England’s chief medical officer, Sir Chris Whitty, as saying the number of cases among young adults in London appeared to be “levelling off or falling” – but he stressed the effect of New Year’s Eve parties had yet to be seen.

The Guardian focuses on the prime minister’s more cautious warning that parts of the NHS may be overwhelmed in the coming weeks. It reports that hospitals across Greater Manchester announced that some non-urgent surgery and appointments would be suspended, as patient numbers in northern England surged.

The Daily Mirror also focuses on the pressure on the NHS, reporting that some ambulance trusts are asking patients with chest pain to get a lift to hospital. The paper says the virus is “sweeping north”, with fears of a “tsunami” of cases.

The Daily Telegraph reports that testing rules will be relaxed as part of efforts to shorten isolation periods and ease staffing shortages. Millions of people who test positive on lateral flow devices will no longer need to take follow-up PCR tests, which the paper says delays the “official” start of the isolation period for those who do not have Covid symptoms but still test positive.

Meanwhile, the i focuses on the prime minister’s announcement that 100,000 critical workers, in industries such as food, transport and the border force, will be given daily tests. Downing Street has also said the Army could be used to fill staff shortages in key public services, the paper reports.

The Financial Times reports that travel stocks rose sharply yesterday as investors grew more confident that the economic effect of the Omicron variant is fading. And for every up there is a down – so the fact that share prices have fallen in tech companies that were beneficiaries of the lockdown is seen as another positive sign from the global trading market.

The Daily Mail leads with the campaign to strip former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair of his knighthood, saying it has been boosted by “devestating” allegations from his own defence secretary. Geoff Hoon says he was ordered by Downing Street to burn a secret memo that said the 2003 invasion of Iraq could be illegal, according to the paper. When the claim emerged in 2015, Sir Tony said it was “nonsense”.

“Killer psycho clowns in the Commons”, is the headline for the Daily Star, which reports that ITV political editor Robert Peston has described politicians as maniacs who would kill to get their own way.

The Daily Telegraph says Covid testing rules are to be relaxed to ease staff shortages. According to the paper, people who test positive on a lateral flow device, but do not have symptoms, will no longer be asked to take a follow-up PCR test.

Boris Johnson’s comment that England can “ride out” the Omicron wave without further restrictions – despite pressures on the NHS – features in several front-page headlines. 

The general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, Pat Cullen, tells the Independent website that her colleagues watched the prime minister’s statement “in disbelief”. She warned that patient care was “under real threat”. 

The Daily Mirror says people calling 999 with symptoms of a heart attack in the north-east of England have been advised to take a cab to A&E rather than wait for understaffed ambulances, which may take up to two hours to arrive.  The paper’s editorial says that is the “frightening cost” of Boris Johnson’s decision that the UK should live with Omicron. 

According to the i newspaper, the UK’s medicines regulator is considering whether to approve a new testing device which takes only 50 seconds to establish if someone has the virus. 

The manufacturer says the device is roughly the size of a desktop computer and could be used in schools and at airports and entertainment venues. 

A report in the Financial Times says shares in travel companies have risen sharply as investors grow more confident that the economic threat posed by the Omicron variant is fading, despite the record number of cases in several countries. 

A stock market index tracking European travel and leisure companies rose by more than 3% to reach its highest level since the end of November. 

There is more coverage of the controversy over the decision to knight Sir Tony Blair. 

The Sun has spoken to Mark Thompson who says he will now hand back a medal awarded to his son Kevin after he was killed whilst serving in Iraq in 2007. 

The Daily Mail leads on what it calls “devastating allegations” against the former prime minister, highlighting a claim published in the memoir of the defence secretary during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Geoff Hoon, who says he was ordered by Downing Street to burn a secret memo warning that the war could be illegal. Sir Tony categorically denied the accusation when it first emerged in 2015. 

The Times and the FT report that Mercedes Benz has made a prototype electric car that can travel the length of Britain on a single charge. That is about three times the average range of other electric cars. 

A commercial model based on the technology will go on sale in 2024. The FT says the announcement is an attempt to reassure customers that a lack of charging infrastructure need not be a barrier to buying a battery-powered vehicle. 

And finally the Times declares that the “South Pole isn’t all white”. A 32-year-old British Army officer, Preet Chandi, has become the first woman of colour to complete a solo expedition to the bottom of the Earth. She completed the 700-mile journey – pulling her equipment in a sledge – in 40 days.
