The Welsh government has announced that it is delaying further easing of lockdown restrictions by four weeks, following a spike in cases of the Delta coronavirus variant.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said the Delta variant had entered Wales and quickly spread throughout the country in the space of just a few short weeks.

He added:

There is sustained and accelerating transmission, not just in north and south east Wales but in all parts of Wales. It is now the most dominant variant in new cases in Wales. We are once again facing a serious public health situation.

According to the latest figures released by the Welsh government, there are nearly 490 cases of the Delta variant in the country, with four out of five new Covid-19 cases attributed to the new variant.
