    No new deaths 45 per 100,000 now in Wales. One of the markers for Tier 1. We remain in Tier 4.

    Things looking far more positive.

    Good old Mark Drakeford will make the easing of lockdown last a few months at least. First thing is for 'stay at home' to give way to 'stay local'. This will mean, come Easter, that the 400,000 of us that live in Cardiff and surrounds will have nowhere to go for a day out other than Cardiff Bay. Thank you Mark

    let's just agree that they're bringing the numbers down well at the moment and the one thing they must not do is cause another spike

    I realise that. England has a plan published for all to see. Wales 'plan' is done in 3 week chunks which keeps us in the dark. When we had the two week firebreak last year, the scientific advisors said three weeks would be much more beneficial. Drakeford replied that we couldn't afford three weeks because of the impact on Welsh business.
    The following month, on Dec 20th he put us in lockdown again and its still ongoing. Where is his interest in Welsh business now? He needs to publish a plan to give business and families some hope and quality of life.
    As an example Ive booked a haircut but my hairdresser won't know until Friday 12th whether he will be allowed to open on Monday 15th, just ridiculous for businesses to try to work on those sorts of timelines.

    Also 30% of the population of Wales have had a Covid jab. That's the main reason that things are improving throughout the UK. When the current lockdown started no one had received a vaccination. He has to be bold enough to realise that keeping levels down should be relatively straightforward as the jab roll out continues, and get focussed on trying to get the Welsh economy back on it's feet

    In Cardiff there is no difference really between stay home and stay local. You would think he’d know that.....there’s no way that people won’t be going wherever come Easter.

    I think the stay local will be 3 weeks only if it comes in.

    They are looking at Tourism opening from Easter.

    Yes your right.

    Next review would be the 2nd meaning if they act as they normally do next restrictions lifted for the 5th which would be Easter Monday.

    If they review on 2nd that's Good Friday, so hopefully they will meet earlier than that

    Third most expensive project in human history and it had little or no difference to the spread of the virus.
    what a joke.

    We an afford to throw away this money with no benefit, but we can't afford infrastructure spending unless it is in London

    Business isn't his thing is it - just asking the Government for a bigger handout each time.

    Hopefully we'll be opening up a bit more soon but this thread is a good one to keep in mind: https://twitter.com/hughes_eilir/sta...64408003162113

    Being outside, in the outdoors in #FreshAir is a lot safer,

    But spending time with others outside your household without social distancing in enclosed spaces is a higher risk- such as travelling in a car together, Of course the longer you spend in that environment the risk increases

    Remember that coronavirus is transmitted in the air via droplets and aerosols. It is #airborne. So wear the best mask you can get if you go into environments where you’re in close contact with people from outside your bubble. FFP2 standard masks offer very good protection

    The way the virus spreads hasn’t changed, but rather our understanding of it has greatly improved. Less emphasis on hand hygiene (although that is always good) and more on the environment you choose to spend time in and with whom.
