The Welsh Government will set out a two-week plan to ease coronavirus restrictions.

First Minister Mark Drakeford is to announce his roadmap for returning to Alert Level 0 during a press conference in Cardiff on Friday.

Wales has been on Level 2 Alert since Boxing Day, which includes measures such as wearing masks in all public places, the two meter rule and the rule of six in hospitality. Nightclubs also had to close.

However, current data shows falling case numbers and a decrease in the number of patients on intensive care beds.

The move to Alert Level 0 is expected to be gradual, with restrictions on outdoor activities being lifted first.

Eslewhere, an NHS leader, has warned the Omicron wave has “compromised” NHS cases in England.

Matthew Taylor, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, warned that while the country has positive signs in the data, the country is “far from over the hill”.
