Drakeford explained: “The data is telling us the number of people suffering from coronavirus has been fallen steadily in Wales over the last week. “We’re beginning to see an impact on our hospitals recede as well and in line with the plan we set out last week we’re confident that from a public health perspective it’s safe to lift those restrictions in outdoor settings and hopefully, provided the numbers continue to improve, we’ll be able to do the same in indoor settings on Friday of next week.” Munchetty asked: “I’m sure many people in Wales we’ll be looking to the restrictions that have been eased in England and thinking, ‘Why are we not there?  “‘Why are we not at that stage if we’re hearing a similar message from the UK Government, hospital admissions are going down, the pressure is easing on the NHS?’” Read more:  BBC Breakfast: Naga Munchetty grilled Mark Drakeford on Covid restrictions (Image: BBC) BBC Breakfast: Munchetty grilled Drakeford on the UK Government's decision to lift Plan B (Image: BBC) Emmerdale exit for Ryan Stocks as deadly secret exposed? “We’ve always taken a different approach in Wales,” Drakeford replied.  “One that does things step-by-step in line with the science, we’re a government that doesn’t need to grab headlines to distract attention from the difficulties that we would be in if we were in the same position as the government in England. “And I think people in Wales have demonstrated their support for that more cautious, step-by-step approach because it has kept Wales and it has kept Wales open.” “Are you saying that the UK Government has leant towards more favourable headlines to save itself rather than follow the science?” Munchetty asked.  First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford MS tells now is the right time to ease some coronavirus restrictions in Wales.
