NEWS ROUNDUP: Concern over new variant of Coronavirus

 

Health chiefs in Wales have said that they are concerned about the Delta variant's spread across the country as Covid rules are relaxed. The number of cases of the strain in Wales now stands at 178, an increase of 81 cases since Thursday. Evidence suggests the Delta variant - first discovered in India - is more transmissible than the previously dominant Alpha - or Kent - variant. Wales has recently moved into Alert Level One.

Plans to overhaul "outdated" laws introduced following the Aberfan coal tip disaster have been unveiled. A mountain of coal waste collapsed on the village's school in the south Wales valleys in October 1966, killing 116 children and 28 adults. This led to changes in the way coal tips were managed across the country. However, the rules have now been described as “unfit for purpose”.

And - the number of deaths involving Covid-19 was down to three in Wales in the latest week. This is the lowest we have seen since early September. It compares to five in the previous week.
