Coronavirus UK Updates: Curfews not being considered in Wales

Wales is “not yet in a position” where measures such as curfews need to be imposed to control the spread of Covid-19, First Minister Mark Drakeford has said.

“It’s important for me to say that numbers in Wales have been improving and we are not in the position we were before Christmas, where Wales had the most difficult figures everywhere in the United Kingdom,” Mr Drakeford told BBC Breakfast.

“We’re below the figures in Northern Ireland, we’re below the figures in England. So we’re not yet in a position where we would need to take measures such as curfews but the continuation of the current lockdown regime is necessary in order to relieve the pressure on the NHS.”

He added: “We’re not in a position where curfews are – at this point – part of the repertoire of actions we are considering.”
