Covid anniversary a ‘time for reflection’

Commenting on the first anniversary of the first death of a person with Covid-19 in Wales, Angela Burns MS – the Shadow Minister for Health – said:

“Anniversaries, whether good or bad ones, are times for reflection, and today it is fitting that we remember all those who have died with Covid, and the many more whose lives have been affected by both the virus and the many other consequences of the pandemic.

“However traumatic a time it has been, the data indicate that Wales is now turning a corner after the remarkable efforts made by frontline NHS staff during the pandemic, and the countless acts of care made by so many other people to try to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

“So, while a time of sadness, it is now also a time for cautious optimism and hope for Wales.”
