During the last few weeks, Wales has seen a significant decrease in the number of official Coronavirus fatalities. Responding to the recent progress, Nesta Lloyd-Jones, Assistant Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation said:
“It has been an exceptionally hard few months, not just for all our staff across the NHS and social care in Wales, but for the public too as we faced significant interventions in our daily lives.
“Those interventions were necessary to protect public health, and there will be a collective sigh of relief as Wales has reported numerous days where no official Coronavirus deaths have been reported and cases across our communities continue to fall.
“However we are not out of the woods, and recent headlines of a second wave of Coronavirus are a stark reminder that we must stick to the guidelines, including social distancing and regular hand washing, in order to keep the virus at bay.
“We would also like to thank the herculean efforts of everyone across the NHS, social care and all the key workers who have played a crucial role in saving lives and keeping the nation going during this difficult time. We also need to remember many families across Wales will still be hurting from the loss of loved ones and our thoughts are with them.”
