World News – GB – People told not to leave as Cardiff and Swansea go on lockdown


Two of Wales’ largest towns will be closed from Sunday, with locals being told they cannot leave the area ‘without a reasonable excuse’

Tough new rules introduced for Cardiff and Swansea after surge in new coronavirus cases

As of 6 p.m. on Sunday, the Welsh government has banned people from entering or leaving the two towns unless they have a valid reason This may include buying essential goods or going at work, but no pre-booked vacation

Residents will not be able to meet inside people with whom they do not live, including friends and family members who were part of their « extended household » « 

People should also work from home when possible, Health Minister Vaughan Gething told a Cardiff press conference

The town of Llanelli will enter a local lockdown on Saturday at 6 p.m., meaning another 1.5 million people in Wales will live under new restrictions by the end of the weekend

He said the Welsh government was acting in a more localized way for the first time in Llanelli « because the transmission of the coronavirus is concentrated in the town itself »

« Introducing restrictions in any part of Wales is always an incredibly difficult decision for us – having to introduce these restrictions in our biggest cities, including our capital, is another grim step in a difficult year, « said M Gething

« We are acting to protect people’s health and to try to break the chain of transmission and prevent the situation from getting worse »

Large parts of Wales were already under lockdown restrictions due to the worsening pandemic The south of the country is currently more affected than the north but cases are increasing everywhere

M Gething told the press conference that 108 people are currently hospitalized with coronavirus – a 300% increase from two weeks ago but still 90% lower than at the peak There have been 348 new confirmed cases in Wales yesterday

Students expected to start their classes in Cardiff and Swansea in the coming days are allowed to travel, the Minister of Health has confirmed

He said: “Coming to work or study is a reasonable excuse to travel and so students will arrive, many of them are already here of course in the university cities of their choice.
