RESPONDING to the news that two wards in Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board have been closed after an outbreak of coronavirus cases, Plaid Cymru Shadow Health Minister Rhun ap Iorwerth MS said:
“It is deeply concerning that infection control procedures do not seem to be working. We’re going backwards in regards to controlling the virus and the last thing we need now is the virus spreading in a medically vulnerable population.
“This will further worry people seeking medical treatment. We already know the last lockdown caused a delay in treatments that will have led to harm so urgent action needs to be taken to ensure our hospitals are safe and people can be confident in attending routine procedures.
