Wales urged not to take rear-view mirror approach to COVID-19

Welsh first minister Mark Drakeford has warned care homes against viewing COVID-19 in “the rear-view mirror”.

In a debate, he has urged people to accept their invitation to receive a free COVID-19 vaccination. He said: “Nothing will be more important than to go and have that vaccination”.

In a debate in the Welsh Senedd, he was told that COVID-19 was the second leading cause of death in male and female care home residents in both the first and second waves of the pandemic. He was also challenged to develop plans for the safe transfer of residents to and from care accommodation and the safe treatment and care that they receive whilst in care.”
