    Wales has officially entered a 17-day lockdown as the First Minister says “we are in this together” in an attempt to protect the country’s NHS from being overwhelmed by coronavirus. The Welsh Government has said the “sharp and deep” lockdown, brought in to coincide with half-term holidays, could be enough to avoid a longer and “much more damaging national lockdown” in the months ahead. Under the measures, which will last 17 days until November 9, people have be asked to stay at home and to leave only for a limited number of reasons, including exercise, buying essential supplies, or to seek or provide care.
