British Deputy Prime Minister, Dominic Raab said on Tuesday that there were 10 people down with the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in the hospital.
Earlier, Raab had told Sky News that there were at least 250 people with Omicron in hospital.
He then told the BBC that nine people with Omicron were in the hospital.
“I misheard one of the questions,” Raab told ITV when asked about the range of figures.
“The figures are one dead from Omicron, 10 in hospital,” he added.
When asked to clarify the figures, a spokesman for the justice ministry told Reuters to call the health ministry.
The health ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
