A reduction in coronavirus cases over the past week is “good news” but people must be complacent Ceredigion County Council’s leader has said.
Cllr Ellen ap Gwynn updated members of the full council at its meeting today (January 21) on the current figures of Covid-19 cases in the county.
Cllr ap Gwynn said that the numbers she had seen that morning show “we seem to be going in the correct direction.”
There were 113 cases over the last seven days she said, compared to 127 the previous seven days, “so the numbers are reducing slowly.”
She said there were currently ten people in Bronglais with the virus adding she hoped that did not increase.
However, residents must not “lapse” and ensure to continue wearing masks, social distancing and washing hands.
Cllr Maldwyn Lewis relayed concerns he had received from Bronglais about the time it was taking to roll out the covid-19 vaccine and the lack of a north county centre.
He was told that Hywel Dda Health Board intended to use the old library at Llanbadarn campus for vaccinations this weekend and once health and care staff were dealt with it was possible it may be used for the public.
Cllr ap Gwynn added that an issue with a batch of vaccine had been resolved and more provision was being provided in the area by GPs, which would increase over coming weeks.
