Wales has now entered into a 17-day “fire break” lockdown that will last for 17 days until Monday, November 9th.
Drakford said it is critical to act now to reduce the rising rates of Coronavirus in Wales.
During a press conference on Friday, he attacked people who said the virus was a hoax.
He said: “There are those who seek to convince us that the risk of infection with the Coronavirus is a hoax; it is a mild disease that does not harm.”
“They are not confronting the families of the people who died this week who will never see or speak to their loved ones again.
“They will never face the hundreds of people who will die in Wales unless we act now to control this deadly disease.”
- People in Wales are required to stay home until Monday, November 9
- All non-essential retail, entertainment, hospitality and tourism businesses will be closed as was the case during the March lockdown
- All community centers, libraries, and recycling centers will also close and places of worship other than funerals or wedding ceremonies will be closed.
- Elementary and private schools will reopen as usual after the mid-term, but high schools will only reopen to students in grades seven and eight for the second week of the fire outage.
- Gatherings either indoors or outdoors with members of other families will not be permitted except for adults who live alone and parents who can join another family for support.

“We urge the public to adhere to the new rules, which are vital to help us regain control of the virus, protect the NHS, and save lives.
“Although national and local measures have made a difference, more action is needed now. Cases continue to rise in Wales, and hospital admissions are increasing, including those in critical care, and unfortunately so is the number of people who They die from the virus.
“Under the rules, people must stay in their homes, except for very limited purposes. They may not visit other families or meet other people with whom they do not live.
“Some businesses and places need to be closed, including bars, restaurants and most stores.
“High schools will only provide online learning for the week following the mid-term, except for children in grades seven and eight. Primary schools and childcare places will remain open.
