    The fact I know loads of people with it currently and all of them are far healthier than if they had the flu means this omicron is the best thing to happen in the last 2 years of this virus.

    Time to get back to normal

    its a brave bold call to stay with " plan b " it would have been easier for him to put more restrictions in place, but he is thinking of the bigger picture

    Living in fear of a potential politically fatal backlash from his own backbenchers and would-be assassins in his own Cabinet if further restrictions were mooted is many things but brave is not one of them!

    Casual empiricism does not systematic data make.

    A lot of good people have sacrificed a huge amount to "fight" Covid. Surely now is not the time to just let the unfortunate and vulnerable down?

    A "brave, bold call"? He's a prisoner of the Libertarian wing of his own party, he's got no choice but to stick with Plan B even though he's admitted the NHS could be overwhelmed in the coming weeks;-

    He may be proved right, but the decisions he's taking are more to do with public finance and Conservative Party politics than bravery and/or boldness.

    Is this what NHS staff should say to the hordes that turn up to hospitals as they turn them away ?

    Yes, they are the 'bigger picture' not the rest of us.

    I agree , the hordes should avoid hospitals at all costs

    20.7% of the new daily hospital patients with Covid-19 in England caught the virus within hospital.

    In the past 7 days 2,870 caught it within hospital

    ➡️ 54,688 in total since August 2020

    As we say in football, results don't lie. Despite our cautious approach in Wales nearly 13% of Covid cases recorded in UK over the last 7 days were in Wales. Considering we are about 5% of UK population that's a worrying stat.

    Arent we catching up with England though.
    Thought we were about 2 weeks behind and we are now showing the steep increase in cases.

    Well if we are catching up with England it strongly suggests that the extra steps taken to protect us in Wales have had no impact at all except to damage the welsh economy

    Where did you read that statistic?

    The 7 day rolling average per day I had seen for Wales is about 10.5k against a UK average of over 180k. That's less than 6% by my maths.

    Covid restrictions in Wales should return to pre-Omicron levels, according to a senior epidemiologist:

    I'd be shocked if anything changes this week, maybe by the end of January though

    The latest 7 days on PHE website 'cases by date reported' for each of the 4 home nations.

    If (when) Wales’ stats reach England levels or even exceed them, surely that is all the evidence you need that the extra restrictions are doing naff all.

    Sure there will be some other reason given though.

    Well the cases by area (last 7 days) are here

    https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/cases


    Wales 75k out of 1.15 million. Looks like your source or maths are askew

    Basically, the same as England. Considering Wales has consistently had tighter rules and more restrictions than England, it seems they weren't needed - other than of course, to show how 'different' we are from England.
