The 240,000 citizens residing in Rhondda Cynon Taff going to have constraints enforced on their own daily lives.

From 18:00 BST on Thu., citizens won’t be able to enter (or) leave the region without a reasonable excuse, like travel for work (5) (or) education.

All licensed building going to have to shut in 23:00 each day, once the lock-down comes into impact.

Health Minister Vaughan Gething stated there were a “quick” raise in instances, with infections per 100,000 citizens over the past 7 days.

The latest equivalent figure around the whole of Wales is 21.Four per 100,000.

It’s the 2nd regional lock-down in Wales, after Caerphilly has been subject to constraints last week.

Tue.’s rate of positive tests in RCT has been 4.3% – the largest in Wales – Mr Gething formerly alerted a positive rate of 4% across Wales would trigger a domestic lock-down.

Contact tracing groups were able to trace regarding half of the COVID-19 instances in RCT “return to a show of clusters in the borough”, he stated.

“The rest are proof of society transmission.”

1 cluster is associated with a rugby club, & a pub within the lower Rhondda valley, the other is linked to a club outing to the Doncaster races, that the minister stated suspended off in a show of pubs on the way.

A review into the lock-down going to be conducted in 2 weeks’ time.
