New restrictions in Wales likely within weeks

New restrictions are likely "in the next few weeks" in Wales to deal with the new Omicron variant, the health minister says, Qazet.az reports citing BBC.

Eluned Morgan says the Welsh government wanted "to act proportionately", but a spike in cases of the variant was expected "quickly".

It comes after Wales' First Minister Mark Drakeford warned Omicron could lead to "large numbers" of people in hospital.

The Welsh Tories want vaccine boosters ramped up "to a war-like footing".
