Welsh Betting Shops And Casinos to Close During "Firebreak" Lockdown

Bulgaria COVID-19 in UK Wales is Going Into Sharp Lockdown from Friday

Both high street lettings and estate agencies' offices must close and agents must work from home wherever possible.

Mr Drakeford cited scientific advisers who have said that a two week lockdown, "providing it is deep enough", is the "best chance we have to turn back the tide on the virus".

On Sunday, 16,982 people tested positive for coronavirus across the United Kingdom, with 950 of them from Wales.

"There are no easy choices in front of us, as the virus spreads rapidly in every part of Wales", Mr Drakeford said. "We have a small window of opportunity to act". "And if we do this, our health service will be able to care for people with coronavirus, and everybody else".

"We are asking our healthcare and social care staff, who have already done so much, to work even harder". All non-essential retail, leisure and tourism businesses will shut and people are required to stay at home. Schools and crèches will stay open, while elite sports and horse racing can continue.

Most children apart from some older students will return to school in the second week after the half-term holiday.

"It is with a heavy heart that I once again ask everyone to stay at home and businesses to shut".

There will be no gatherings of people you do not live with either indoors or outdoors during the two-week period.

'We could have gone for a longer period with slightly fewer restrictions but, in the end, the advice to us - partly because of the impact on people's mental health - was that if you could keep this period of time as short as you could, that would help to mitigate that impact'.

"We will make sure that the full details of the package are available throughout this week, but I can confirm today that we have created an extra-economic resilience fund of nearly £300 million pounds".

Non-food retailers, cafes, restaurants, pubs and hotels as well as services such as hairdressers and beauticians must all close for 14 days from 6pm (1700 GMT) on Friday.

With the Welsh Government asking UK Government to fund this lockdown, I hope that as many businesses as possible get support they need quickly. He also unveiled a 300 million pounds (about 390 million USA dollars) economic resilience fund to help businesses affected by the shutdown.

The chancellor, Rishi Sunak, commented: "The expansion of the Job Support Scheme will provide a safety net for businesses across the United Kingdom who are required to temporarily close their doors, giving them the right support at the right time".

"The fixed period of this lockdown and the guarantee it won't be extended provides some certainty and allows retailers to plan for their reopening".

"But it is only the UK Government that has the financial power to guarantee the levels of income support workers need".

'The first minister needs to urgently come to the Welsh Parliament and answer these questions, to face effective scrutiny by elected representatives and not run his government by media'.
