Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Wales heads for 'circuit breaker' lockdown”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Wales announced a 'circuit breaker' lockdown today - with bars, restaurants and non-essential shops facing being closed down for two weeks.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said the draconian move will take effect from 6pm on Friday to combat a coronavirus surge.

Describing the measures as a 'firebreaker', he warned that failure to act now would mean 'more people will die'. 

He said everyone in Wales will be ordered to 'stay at home' unless they are critical workers or have no choice about going out to work. Households are being banned from mixing indoors or outdoors.

The step will heap pressure on Boris Johnson, who has been desperately resisting the option in England despite backing from his own SAGE experts.
