First Minister launches "look after each other" campaign

A Welsh Government campaign on how to help people who are staying at home because of coronavirus has been launched, reports the BBC.
First Minister Mark Drakeford said: “I’ve seen so many good things happening, from online choir groups to grocery deliveries, as people across Wales go out of their way to help others with their everyday needs.
“Communities have pulled together to support neighbours in this time of need. Today, we’re asking others to follow the shining example by doing their bit if they’re able to.”
Earlier, First Minister Mark Drakeford said that letters are being sent to 70,000 of Wales' "most vulnerable people" advising them to stay indoors for 12 to 16 weeks.
In his press briefing Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that such "shielding" measures - which will apply to around 1.5 million vulnerable people in England - will do more than many other measures to reduce the number of coronavirus cases in the UK.
On social distancing, Mr Johnson said that, while he wants people to enjoy outdoor spaces, people must follow the advice.
"Don't think that fresh air in itself provides some sort of immunity," he says.
