    A WELSH Labour MS has said unvaccinated people should be denied access to events and venues when current Covid restrictions are lifted.

    Alun Davies has said those rejecting the assistance of vaccination should face consequences of their decision.

    The Member of Senedd for Blaenau Gwent shared a news story about the introduction of tougher restrictions on the unvaccinated in Italy and said he would like to see similar measures in Wales.

    He told his more than 11,000 Twitter followers: “I hope that the Welsh Govt will use our covid passes in this way to reduce regulations when the time is right for everyone who is fully vaccinated.”







    The headline of the news story he shared read: “Unvaccinated people banned from public transport, coffee shops and gyms in Italy.”


    Will he backing Ikeas decision to cut sick pay for unvaccinated staff who need to self-isolate because of Covid and in some cases for workers who test positive.

    Should he even still be in Government ?

    STOCKHOLM, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Sweden hit a new daily record for COVID-19 cases on Thursday, with figures likely to continue to increase rapidly over the next couple of weeks before peaking at the end of January, the country's health agency said on Thursday.

    The number of new cases hit 25,215 on Thursday amid a surge in the Omicron variant and the Public Health Agency warned that figure could more than double by the end of the month in a worst-case scenario.

    Sweden recently tightened its restrictions and has urged people to work from home in an effort to minimise the spread of the virus.

    State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell said Sweden was experiencing the same rapid increase in infections as many other countries.

    "These increases are probably going to continue for a while yet. That means that we already... have a high level of pressure on the health and welfare system," he told a news conference.

    Before any discussions deciding whether one approach was right and one wasn't, you have to define what getting it right actually means.

    I would define 'getting it right' in this instance as a government introducing measures and/or restrictions that are proportionate to the problem.

    I didn't believe for one second that the Welsh government were doing that in December and I don't believe they are doing that now. It's an absolute farce that City are playing Blackburn in the Championship tomorrow afternoon behind closed doors, while Newport are facing Harrogate in League Two in an empty stadium and Chester have been forced to postpone their National League North game against Brackley Town. Total and utter nonsense. Meanwhile, football and rugby matches will be played without any restrictions throughout the rest of the UK.

    If Drakeford and his cronies had anything about them, they would have admitted early in the week that they overreacted to the alleged Omicron 'tsunami' (which was later downgrade to a storm) and relaxed all of their ridiculous restrictions without any further delay. But, of course, they were never going to make such an admission, and instead they're going to drag this nonsense out for another couple of weeks.
