Wales imposes 16-day strict lockdown to control pandemic and protect NHS - BBC News



The Welsh government is imposing a 16-day lockdown across the country to regain control of the pandemic.

The First Minister, Labour’s Mark Drakeford, said that without a lockdown the NHS in Wales would not be able to cope in the weeks and months ahead.

However there’s been dismay and anger in parts of Wales where the number of coronavirus cases is still relatively low.

People will have to stay at home unless they’re key workers or can’t work from home. Pubs, restaurants, hotels and all non-essential shops will close.

Primary schools will reopen after half-term. Secondary school Years 7 and 8 will return but other pupils will learn from home.

Gatherings indoors and outdoors with people from other households will not be allowed.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Wales correspondent Hywel Griffith.

  1. Outcome: short term covid infections improvement, to be succeeded by long term economic damage and for infections to then go up immediately after lock down ends. We've already done this experiment and it didn't work the first time. With the English government as dumb, they will probably follow suit.

  2. Vanessa Beeley is a journalist. Did you hear that, Google? She's a bloody good journalist, too. If you want the truth about the regime change war in Syria and Zionist oppression of Palestine, Vanessa is there doing actual journalism on the ground, not reading government propaganda from studio auto-cue in London.

  3. Only idiots believe the Khazar New World Order's Communist government's COVID-19 bullcrap. This is all about total tyranny, even going beyond their Bolshevik régime in Russia. The first minister will likely be displaying the hammer and sickle flag in his office as did demented Joe Biden in America.

  4. Leading the way for a change instead of the usual being dragged down the pan by Westminster's constant mistakes than we normally have to bear the burden of. Let's hope that when this crisis is finally behind us we grow a pair like the Scottish & do something about getting the hell out of this circus.

  5. If everyone who is against this lockdown nonsense decides to ignore the law from a given day will they all be arrested, fined or otherwise? How about it UK? En masse, all those who oppose, use social media to agree upon a weekend, a place and a time for a mass protest and all get out there together. Find local leaders who will back you and get out on the streets to protest. The masses can never be ignored. Remember the French Yellow Vests! Take a leaf out of their book and get what you all want by not giving up or backing down. Good luck from Japan.

  6. This may be the first of many lockdowns to come, so in other words it's a reset lol, I've always known this was going to happen but didn't think they would use a virus to achieve it, it's quite genius really.

  9. I’m in Wirral which comes under tier 3 even though where not Liverpool & all shops, schools etc are still open. Bojo the clown has only closed gyms, betting shops, pubs & restaurants which doesn’t even effect the majority of people. Yet Wales which is a much smaller country than England goes on full lockdown again. I think closing the border to England & putting the whole of Wales in lockdown even small villages that have low cases is unfair

  10. U call this a lockdown ????? When my family and i were in lockdown, everyone (other than essential workers of course) could go out for only 2 hours per day, that went on for like a month or half a month or else we would be jailed or worse deported.

  11. Magic Gnome Drakeford exercising his severe case of little man syndrome again by destroying as many jobs and pushing as many people into depression and suicide as he can with his Stalin / Mao/Hitler impression of telling people what must do. Pathetic little man. Welsh Gov should be done away with.
