|Does Wales have a roadmap out of lockdown?
It is "impossible" to สมัครสมาชิกสล็อต give a date for the end of lockdown restrictions, one of Wales' top doctors says.
Dr Chris Jones, deputy chief medical officer, said there was a "real risk" of a third wave of Covid-19 cases if restrictions eased too quickly.
He was speaking after Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled a plan to end lockdown in England, by 21 June.
The Conservatives have called for the Welsh Government to produce a roadmap for the end of the Covid lockdown.
Speaking to BBC Radio Wales Breakfast, Dr Jones said there were "probably greater risks" now than at previous points in the pandemic
because of the more transmissible variants.
He told Claire Summers that opening schools "has a definite effect on the R-rate", and how the new variants will affect infections is
"It is absolutely impossible in my view to say that on any one date in several months, that this will be the situation," he said in
response to a question about Mr Johnson's announcement.
"I think we have to take things step by step."
He said all the UK's chief medical officers "share the same view about the risks associated with relaxing restrictions," but added
politicians had "very difficult decisions" to make.
But he said "messaging to the public" was "very important".
"To send the message that everything is going to be back to normal in a few months time, I think, is almost too open," he said.
"We are not out of the woods yet. There is a real risk of a third wave if restrictions are eased too quickly.
"We hope, from our cautious approach and step-by-step approach, will minimise the risk of that."
