During a plenary session in Seneca on Tuesday, Prime Minister Mark Dreckford confirmed that the latest figures show an increase in the number of cases of 22 to 17 local authorities. A mass test pilot is already underway at Merthyr Tydfil.
Dr Giri Shankar, director of the coronavirus outbreak in the novel Public Health Well, said: “Public Health Wells is encouraging everyone who lives, works or studies at Martha’s Tidfield to join the leisure center’s mass testing service – even if they have no symptoms.
“Thanks to those who have already taken part and taken a test, it will help us break the discipline of conduct in this area. But we need to be able to test as many people in the area as we need to make the exercise as successful as possible.”
“Visit the MTCBC website for more information about test practice.
“People over the age of 11 can test without any symptoms, but children under the age of 18 need parental consent. The more people tested, the more likely we are to reduce the spread of the virus.
“People with symptoms should also be tested, but you need to book a test by calling 119 or clicking here.”
What do you think of the proposals to celebrate Christmas during the epidemic?
He added: “Public Health Wales advises the public to take personal responsibility for their actions and to make every effort to limit coronavirus transmission.
“We would like to remind everyone that the coronavirus is still active in our community and therefore does not mean that it will return to normal.
“We urge people to abide by the new rules and to limit their contact with other people as much as possible so that we can all work together to reduce the number of positive cases.
“It means staying out of the other person’s home, limiting the amount of time you spend meeting them, maintaining social distance and hand health, working from home if you can and showing signs of the virus or asking yourself Either way, do it yourself with isolated contact tracers.
“All of these measures will help break the chain of infection, reduce the spread of the virus and keep people safe.
“We understand that people will want to continue their Christmas shopping now that the fire department is off. We will try to visit the stores during off-peak hours, always maintaining a social distance and advising you to keep your face covered if you can. Options such as clicks and collections or online purchases may also be something to consider. “
