LEVEL ONE: How do people feel about Wales moving to Alert Level One?
Wales has moved into Alert Level One. But how do the people of Cardiff feel about that?
Up to 30 people can now meet outdoors and large outdoor activities will be able to take place, as Wales moves into Alert Level One.
The size of extended households can be increased to up to three households, and a further household with a single adult or single adult with caring responsibilities will also be able to join.
The move to alert level one will be phased, with outdoor events opening first. Ministers will review the public health situation again, ahead of June 21, to determine whether indoor events can restart.
The two-stage approach will enable more people to be vaccinated – and complete their two-dose course – amid growing concerns about the spread of the delta variant of the virus across the UK.
First Minister Mark Drakeford said:
“I want to thank everyone in Wales for everything they have done to control the spread of coronavirus and keep rates low. The emergence of the delta variant shows the pandemic is not over yet and we all need to continue to take steps to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
The seven-day coronavirus case rate remains very low in Wales and the positivity rate is less than 1%. Wales also has the best vaccination rates in the UK – more than 85% of the population has had one dose and 45% have completed the course.
But there is growing concern about the spread of the delta variant in many parts of the UK, especially in the North West of England.
There are currently 97 cases in Wales, including a cluster of cases in Conwy.
