The Omicron strain of Covid is likely to replace Delta as the dominant form of the virus within days, the Scottish First Minister warned. Ms Sturgeon said the 110 cases recorded in the country are only the “tip of the iceberg”.
She predicted a new wave of the pandemic was about to begin and announced changes to self-isolation guidelines.
However, following her advice, the hashtag #ResignSturgeon began trending on Twitter, with people urging the First Minister to step down.
One person, Tractor Girly, posted the hashtag 10 times on Twitter followed by: “‘LeaveOurChristmasAlone”.
She then added: “Let’s get #ResignSturgeon trending today.
“Send a message to ScotGovFM that we won’t stand for our Christmas plans being curtailed again this year.”
