Welsh Labour Put Profits Before Our Safety in Covid Response

Mark Drakeford delayed the second lockdown by over a month against the advice of even official SAGE. Thousands died as a consequence of that and the slowness of the testing and tracing system - latest evidence. Still no recognition of the role that keeping schools and workplaces open played in transmission. Deaths were almost double in second wave compared to the first. This tragedy was avoidable if we had a government in Wales willing to stand up to the pressure big business was putting on it. Instead Welsh Labour prioritised profits over our safety.
