Chris Elmore has welcomed the Welsh Labour Government’s announcement of an additional £32m to speed up Coronavirus testing times in Wales.
The investment will deliver faster results for contact tracing and ensure Wales is prepared for any increases in cases during the autumn and winter. It forms part of a package of measures to combat Covid-19 in Wales and put communities on a solid footing should there be any increase in cases in the months ahead.
Chris Elmore MP said:
“We know that as we enter the winter months, there will be an increased risk of Coronavirus spread. This investment will ensure the Welsh Labour Government is able to deliver their crucial Test, Trace, Protect strategy, to keep the virus under control and keep Wales safe.
“The people of Ogmore have played a vital role in keeping the virus under control, and we all want restrictions on our daily lives to end as soon as possible. This investment in Test, Trace, Protect will help us do that, enabling quick identification of people with coronavirus symptoms and new virus hotspots.”
