Building across Wales lit up in blue to show appreciation for the NHS as people across Wales joined in to 'Clap for Carers' for the third week running.

From people self-isolating alone to whole streets people across the UK came together to show their support for emergency workers.

From children drawing rainbows on their windows, family members working in the NHS being given a hero's welcome, to volunteer groups delivering food to hospital staff - there has been an outpouring of support for those working on the frontline since the outbreak.

Many had hoped it would be the last under the initial three-week lockdown, however on Wednesday, the First Minister of Waled was the first to declare that the lockdown would continue.

This was later echoed by the UK government. Itdelayed a review into the situation, in part due to the prime minster, Boris Johnson, being in poor health.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said at a Thursday press conference: "We don’t expect to be able to say more on this until the end of next week. The measures will have to stay in place until we’ve got the evidence that clearly shows we’ve moved beyond the peak."

It comes as the number of deaths and confirmed cases in Wales continue to rise. As of Thursday, 286 people have died from the virus, and more than 4,000 people have tested positive.Public Health Wales has urged people to stay at home ahead of the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Welsh Government and the emergency services have signed a joint letter urging the same. The letter, signed by the First Minister, Health Minister and the Chief Medical Officer, says lives will be saved by following the rules.
