Covid-19: ‘Welsh Government must safely and sensibly ease lockdown restrictions’

Commenting ahead of tomorrow’s statement from the First Minister, Darren Millar MS – the Shadow Minister for Covid Recovery – said:

“The Welsh Government must work hard to protect people’s lives and livelihoods.

“In recent months, people across Wales have sacrificed many of their freedoms to protect our NHS and keep people safe.

“But the longer the lockdown continues, the more difficult it will be for our economy to recover, the more jobs will be lost, and the more harm will be done to the education of our young people.

“With infection rates falling and pressures on the NHS easing, it’s now essential that the Welsh Government begins to safely and sensibly lift restrictions so that families can be reunited, our economy can begin to bounce back, and our young people can get the education they deserve.”
