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!

I think we will mind actually. Professor Drakeford has given and given and given of himself to our nation. Hope he gets well quickly.
