It comes as the overall infection rate in Wales has fallen to its lowest point since the start of December. However there are questions about how easy it will be to lift lockdown.

According to the latest figures from Public Health Wales, the Wales infection rate is now down to 281.2 cases per 100,000 people based on the seven days up to January 16.

Moving below a level of 300 cases for every 100,000 and remaining there over a sustained period is one of the key benchmarks for moving out of Alert Level Four lockdown. However, other measures watched by the Welsh Government have not fallen as significantly.

The percentage of tests coming back positive is still well above the 10% benchmark.

Speaking at the coronavirus briefing on Wednesday, health minister Vaughan Gething warned it was unlikely there would be any major changes to lockdown restrictions when they are reviewed next week.

"No one should expect any significant easing at the end of the new review period, at the end of January," he said.

He said positivity and case rates were moving in the right direction but were "still really quite high". This means the pressure remains high on the NHS, he said, adding that the service is operating at nearly 150% of its capacity.

"If we come out of level four too soon and too fast we could well see a rebound in Covid rates," he said.
