Wales Council of the Blind has joined other national disability organisations to raise concerns about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on disabled people living with pre-existing medical conditions.
WCB have released the following statement:
Disability Wales, All Wales People First, Wales Council of the Blind, All Wales Parents and Carers Forum, Learning Disability Wales and Mencap Cymru call on the UK and Welsh Governments to act decisively to safeguard the well-being and survival of disabled people and others categorised as being at high risk of contracting the virus in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are extremely concerned that necessary measures to minimise fatalities in these groups are not being taken.
