Covid-related patients in NHS in Wales up by 49% in a week

The number of Covid-related patients in Wales' hospitals has risen by 49% in a week.

Welsh NHS boss Andrew Goodall said more than 700 people were being looked after - the highest number since late June.

The chief executive said demand for beds would continue to increase in the days and weeks ahead.

"I anticipate this winter will be more challenging than any I have known in my professional career," Mr Goodall told a Welsh Government press conference.

It comes as the Welsh Government said it was "planning very seriously" for a circuit breaker lockdown.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in hospital - where a patient has tested - is 326, up 70% on two weeks ago, Mr Goodall said.

That is half of the peak in April, "but I am concerned at the rising trend", he added.

They have been using statistics for 9 months to justify the various control measures.

Second, death rates - already tiny - have plummeted, by some reckoning to 0.1% of those infected.

It's still a concern for over 70's with chronic conditions, but the hysterical way the doctors/politicians have reacted is putting the whole nation close to collapse..

Other day they quoted so many deaths from "SUSPECTED" covid ...... they then turned around later and said so many deaths were from covid.. suspect and actually are two different words meaning different things...

Covid: Circuit-breaker lockdown 'likely for Wales'

A limited circuit-breaker lockdown for Wales is due to be announced in the next few days, the BBC has been told.

Restaurateurs, food businesses and unions have called for urgent clarity on the government's plans to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Hospitality firms and council leaders were briefed this week.

The Welsh Government said there was a growing consensus a different set of measures were needed, but no decisions have been made.

No outline has been given of which sectors may have to close, but a group of businesses say there are proposals to shut hospitality.

A circuit-breaker is a short period of time where tighter restrictions are brought in to break the trajectory of coronavirus cases rising.

It is not yet clear when the announcement will be made, or for how long a limited shutdown would last.

Fortnight Covid 'fire-break' lockdown within days in Wales

People in Wales are facing a national lockdown lasting at least two weeks in plans described as a "fire-break" by the first minister.

Mark Drakeford said it would be a "short, sharp" circuit-breaker to slow down the virus.

He said a decision was likely to be made on Monday, while talks continue with health officials, scientific advisors and councils over the weekend.

"Doing nothing is not an option," he said.

"A 'fire-break' would also mean a short, sharp shock to all our lives.

"We would all have to stay at home to once again save lives. But this time it would be for weeks not months."

Mr Drakeford warned that 2,500 people were now being infected with coronavirus every day in Wales, with critical care units in hospitals full.

"A successful fire-break would re-set the virus at a lower level," he added.

If itu ect are full wheres the panic? Last time it was all over the media with it sounding like armeggedon ! This fire break will be more of a Berlin wall with it lasting more than the two weeks drakeford says as cannot go from 0 to 100 and back again in two weeks ... but sure he'll find a way to bluff his way out of things. :o

The reason we are in this mess is because of the dickheads who dont observe social distancing.Don't wear facdmasks.
I read somewhere a vaccine is close it will take to doses though.Then theres the anti vaccers,What a bunch of wankers.

The perfect solution

Postby Nuclearblue » Sun Oct 18, 2020 10:07 pm

Her you go all you BBC News watchers and scared sheep. Wear these then it will leave the rest of us to get back to normality. It will keep you 100% safe. Now all the rest can go about our daily lives no social distancing. We can :
1/ Go back to the football no restrictions and boo the living f**k out of the players for being little twats taking the knee.
2/ Go to restaurants without being surrounded by plastic shielding.
3/ Go to the pub like we used to
4/ Go to the supermarket without it looking like downtown China with everyone wearing gob stoppers.
5/ Being able to travel around the country no restrictions.
6/ Start going on holidays again.
And everyone is happy knowing the scared ones don’t need to be scared any longer it’s win win win for everyone.

Xmas cancelled?

Postby pembroke allan » Mon Oct 19, 2020 1:07 pm

Will Christmas be cancelled this year? Drakeford just put us in lockdown supposedly for 2wks but more likely be longer.... social distancing will certainly be in place so how can people have works night or out go for meals! And there is the shopping does anyone fancy standing outside in the snow or rain for god knows how long because to many people in shop? Think best bet is get the beer in early fill the freezer and chill at home until xmas as gone. :occasion5:

Last to come out of lockdown, fist to go back into lockdown.....There's devolution for you !!!

No government has come out of it well, why should they ? China has been best at stamping out the outbreaks but what would the twitteratti think of police kicking the door in to arrest people suspected of breaking lockdown, or throwing barricades up on the M4.

Boris pulled the panic button in March because he had to, Drakeford has done it for political expediency. Funny how Starmer flipped 180 last week when he used Wales as his political petri dish and dopey Drakeford has done as his party leader told him. Is Andy Burnham still trying to oppose a far lighter lockdown ?

Probably half if their previous attempts at maths is anything to go by? As for 2wks that's fantasy land uf you listen to so called experts who all say need at least 3wks probably more to see effect on covid cases! Unless of course drakeford manipulates the figures... :o

You are right about 2 weeks being of no use as a lockdown. The self proclaimed experts say it takes a minimum of 3 weeks to have any effect, which is why the initial lockdown in March, was 3 weeks. So what is the point of a 2 week lockdown?
This lockdown will only delay the possible spread to the Christmas period. Why do that?

If you look around the news media there is a lot of contradictory information on deaths coming out that do not collate with original figures given out...... there is no evidence to support a lockdown but drakeford likes to be seen as the great leader and will do anything to bolster this image.

Well drakeford believes it's a last resort as he doesn't know what else to do... he as put in place financial measures for certain businesses but is relying on Westminster to prop up the rest.. my problem with this measure is it will only come back once lockdown is lifted exactly what happened when restrictions were lifted previously!

No government has come out of it well, why should they ? China has been best at stamping out the outbreaks but what would the twitteratti think of police kicking the door in to arrest people suspected of breaking lockdown, or throwing barricades up on the M4.

Boris pulled the panic button in March because he had to, Drakeford has done it for political expediency. Funny how Starmer flipped 180 last week when he used Wales as his political petri dish and dopey Drakeford has done as his party leader told him. Is Andy Burnham still trying to oppose a far lighter lockdown ?

Manchester 449 / 100K
Cardiff 270



and how many of those 449 or 270 are actually ill ?




Probably half if their previous attempts at maths is anything to go by? As for 2wks that's fantasy land uf you listen to so called experts who all say need at least 3wks probably more to see effect on covid cases! Unless of course drakeford manipulates the figures... :o


You are right about 2 weeks being of no use as a lockdown. The self proclaimed experts say it takes a minimum of 3 weeks to have any effect, which is why the initial lockdown in March, was 3 weeks. So what is the point of a 2 week lockdown?
This lockdown will only delay the possible spread to the Christmas period. Why do that?



they will claim it has worked either way.. just like the earlier 3 month lockdown when 39,500 of UK covid deaths happened .. but.... it would have been more had we not locked down :? .... you dont need a shred evidence just needs to be said and people buy it..



If you look around the news media there is a lot of contradictory information on deaths coming out that do not collate with original figures given out...... there is no evidence to support a lockdown but drakeford likes to be seen as the great leader and will do anything to bolster this image.



the World Health Organisation say lockdowns should only be used as a last resort...
so are they wrong and Drakeford correct... or is this really a last resort ?
