Can anyone explain why the Councillor for Cefn – Derek Wright has called for local community level Covid data not to be made available rather than asking what has caused his area to be so high. Would it not be better to get to the bottom of how the spread has grown so much — how many house parties, no social distancing, parents gathering at school gates are just a few of the things that could be affecting the information.
Derek surely you would hope to see the next set of figures showing that the figure has gone down if not you’d better get out and about to find out why there is no change. Who are the spreaders!!
Well you’d think that as the elected representative for any given area a local councillor would want all the data available so that they could best manage the requirements of individuals living in their wards. Especially in these times where health and safety comes to the forefront. Clr Rogers is taking a sensible approach and ensuring everyone is safe by keeping people alert to increases.
However, Clr Wright seems to be taking the absurd notion that he’s somehow going to be put on the naughty step because his area has seen an increase and wants to hide from the information. He doesn’t want his constituents to keep informed and seems to have no intention of helping them stay safe either. I’m not sure what his track record is during normal times, but his comments make him seem wholly unsuitable to the task of being a Councillor and responsible for his area in times of Covid-19. Let’s just hope there are some more sensible community councillors working in the area instead.
I wonder what Cllr Wright thinks about Cefn being the highest area in the whole of North Wales
1. Cefn Mawr – 46 cases; 501.2 per 100,000
2. Ruabon and Marchwiel – 25 cases; 377.2 per 100,000
3. Johnstown North and Rhostyllen – 19 cases; 309.8 per 100,000
Surley he should be asking Public Health Wales for help rather than ignore the figures.
