“What is going to be done differently?” – Rhun ap Iorwerth responds to Welsh Government Press Conference.

Responding to the Welsh Government press conference today (Wednesday 28 October), Rhun ap Iorwerth MS, Plaid Cymru’s Shadow Minister for Health said:

“The news today that 37 further people have died after contracting the coronavirus is a sombre reminder of what we face if we fail to control the virus. We were right to call for this ‘fire break’ period, to slow it down and allow a new strategy to be put in place.

“Now we really need to know what the plan is after November 9th. We’ve had some detail today, and I welcome that. I’d called, for example, for an assurance that gyms could reopen so people could stay fit of body and mind.

“But we need more detail on what businesses should plan for, and crucially what Government will do differently in terms of controlling and beating down the virus, not least through strengthening the testing system.”
