Give vulnerable access to supermarkets

Coronavirus: 'Large spike in demand' for toilet paper over COVID ...

More than 85,000 people in Wales are classified as 'extremely vulnerable' due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We call on the Welsh Government to make immediate arrangements to ensure these most vulnerable people are given priority access to supermarket deliveries, which many are finding impossible to get. Those most at risk and the supermarkets themselves have supported such a move.

We also call on the Welsh and UK Governments to improve communication so that people understand that announcements made in England are not necessarily going to be implemented in Wales. There has been unnecessary confusion caused by officials and politicians failing to explain themselves properly.

Mae mwy na 85,000 o bobl yng Nghymru yn cael eu ystyried yn 'hynod fregus' oherwydd pandemig Covid-19.

Rydym yn galw ar Lywodraeth Cymru i wneud trefniadau ar unwaith i sicrhau bod y bobl fwyaf bregus hyn yn cael mynediad â blaenoriaeth i ddosbarthu gan archfarchnadoedd. Mae llawer yn ei chael yn amhosibl eu cael ar y funud. Mae'r rhai sydd fwyaf mewn perygl, a'r archfarchnadoedd eu hunain, wedi cefnogi symudiad o'r fath.

Rydym hefyd yn galw ar Lywodraethau Cymru a'r DU i wella cyfathrebu fel bod pobl yn deall nad yw cyhoeddiadau a wneir yn Lloegr o reidrwydd yn mynd i gael eu gweithredu yng Nghymru. Bu dryswch di-angen oherwydd bod swyddogion a gwleidyddion wedi methu ag egluro eu hunain yn iawn.

    Public health measures should always be proportionate and targeted. This means protecting the vulnerable whilst isolating the infectious. A centralised one-size-fits-all approach isolating everyone whilst overlooking the needs of vulnerable individuals is neither proportionate nor targeted. I am therefore very happy to support this petition.

    Another example of the Welsh Government failure to keep pace with Best practice.

    The delivery for the most vulnerable should be made a priority, a balanced diet is a must for everyone including the most vulnerable, especially in times of emotional stress that can have an effect on our ability to fight infections/ viruses.

    Many are disadvantaged as they have no one to get to the shops for them, some carers looking after and living the vulnerable are taking chances going to the shops putting themselves and the vulnerable person at greater risk. If this can be done in England why can’t it be done in Wales.
