The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is addressing the Parliament today from 2.00 O’ clock. It is expected that she will announce new restrictions to combat the spread of new omicron virus. Cases in Scotland are rising at a fast pace each day. The First Minister outlined guidance like reintroducing social distancing and protective screens in shops.

On the other hand, shops are offering discounts to attract more people. There are boards like buy one get one free in front many shops. People are coming to the shops and purchase as usual. They wear masks and maintain social distancing as enter the shops. It seems like they are not very much bothered about the pandemic situation.
