Andrew RT Davies MS – the Shadow Health Minister – has given his reaction to the announcement today (September 21) that local lockdowns will be imposed on Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil, Blaenau Gwent, and Newport local authorities.
Welsh Conservative Mr Davies said:
“Ministers and governments must do everything possible to avoid another blanket national lockdown as the other public health and economic impacts would be disastrous.
“We need to see smart, hyper-local lockdowns based on accurate and detailed data, and a resumption of shielding of the elderly and vulnerable.
“We all need to play our part by adhering to social distancing, masks, and hand hygiene, and we need to see a strong public information campaign from the Welsh Labour-led Government to hammer this message home.”
