Caerphilly Labour MP Wayne David, speaking in a Welsh Affairs debate in Parliament, has paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of the staff and management of the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board during the coronavirus pandemic.
Commenting on the reduction in the incidence of Covid-19 in the health board area to 76.4 per 100,000 people, down from 83.6 in the previous week he said, “The forbearance and resilience of my Caerphilly constituents is quite amazing, but everyone accepts that there is still some way to go before this virus is defeated.”
He added, “I would also like to pay tribute to the staff of the Aneurin Bevan Health Board whose dedication to the tasks before them is simply incredible.”
Wayne David then went on to commend the excellent progress surrounding the roll out of the vaccine in the Greater Gwent area, delivered though a blend of vaccine centres, GPs and mobile teams.
Mr David concluded his contribution to the House of Commons debate by saying, “One of the reasons why things are going well is because of the effective leadership provided by the First Minister and the Welsh Government, a view articulated by Dr Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury on “BBC Wales Live” this week.”
