Get better soon Mr Drakeford. This should be a reminder that Boris is playing Russian Roulette with every person in this country on every level.
Maybe he will realise how mild it is…..as Flu overtakes Omnisniffles for the first time as cases plummet to 0.4 % of the Welsh population.
Hope you recover quickly Professor Drakeford. Have a good rest, you’ve worked so hard through this pandemic and been a fantastic leader. God bless.
True Welsh hero!
Best Joke I have heard for ages.
I think we will mind actually. Professor Drakeford has given and given and given of himself to our nation. Hope he gets well quickly.
(Just to add, this was a response to a really nasty comment that someone wrote that looks like it has now been deleted).
No it means that Covid is highly infectious and there are no protections which are 100%. Don’t spread irresponsible statements.
Sending love and best wishes to our Welsh hero. Hope you don’t feel grotty and get well soon. You have done so much for us.
