Wales Set To Review Covid Rules As Cases Significantly Plummet

As the number of cases constantly falls, the Welsh and UK government advisor has suggested that Wales should ease out Covid restrictions.

As the number of cases constantly falls, the Welsh and UK government advisor has suggested that Wales should ease out Covid restrictions.

Prof John Watkins said that the latest health modelling suggested that Wales was following a “positive trajectory” despite a recent surge in Covid cases.

Consultant epidemiologist Prof Watkins said the connection between hospitalisations and deaths had “definitely” been broken. The number of cases in Wales is lower than in most UK nations and English regions. According to the latest data, Covid case rates in Wales are at 127 cases per 100,000 people

“We’ve got a considerable amount of the adult population now vaccinated and we know that vaccination reduces transmission as well as reduces adverse events,” he said.

“And we know that in young people, where the bulk of infections are occurring at the moment, that actually they have got far less chances of adverse events, so I think we’re at a reasonably good place to start opening up society.”

The Welsh government which is now under pressure to lift restrictions is set to review its lockdown rules on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that English restrictions could end in July whilst in most parts of England the wearing of masks will cease to be mandatory from 19 July.

The lives of most individuals might have been seriously impacted after spending over a year under severe Covid restrictions, prof Watkins said.
