On Friday afternoon, Health Minister Van Gogh confirmed that the cities of Cardiff, Swansea and Carmarthenshire, Llenley, would be subject to a local lockdown this weekend.
The Lanley lockdown takes effect on Saturday evening and the lockdown in Cardiff and Swansea will begin on Sunday evening. Mr Gehing called on the people of the two countries not to “act like a final blow this weekend”.
The change means about 1.5 million people in eight council territories and one city will be subject to local sanctions – half of the Welsh population.
“There’s a special challenge around us in Lollipop that is well-identified in this city, it’s an influential spread that’s out of control,” Mr. Gaying said.
“We have talked to the local authorities, we have talked to the local health board and we understand the need to act and work as soon as possible.
Mr Gihing said locals’ bans have been reviewed for Kerfili, which has been locked for a fortnight.
He said since these were introduced in the county the number of cases there has been steadily declining
He said there is a very high level of consent, which has made a “real difference”. The restrictions, however, will last for at least the next seven days.
