    The son of an 81-year-old man who died after contracting coronavirus in hospital has blamed his father's death on a lack of testing and personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline NHS staff.

    Jeff Lavington, from Carmarthen, caught the virus while recovering from a stroke at the town's Glangwili General Hospital.

    His son Mark Lavington said the staff caring for him did an "amazing job", but claimed some of those treating him were protected only by disposable gloves, disposable polythene aprons, and surgical masks.

    He said: "From talking to two members of staff on the ward, I gather that one of the members of staff had been exhibiting symptoms."

    Mandy Rayani, director of nursing, quality and patient experience for Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: "Our deepest sympathies are with the family at this time and our door is open should they wish to discuss any matters about the care of their loved one.

    "Our staff working in our hospitals and communities are working tremendously hard and adjusting environments and pathways of care during these extraordinary times, in line with expert guidance and in order to keep our patients as safe as possible.

    "Our staff have been issued with personal protective equipment and are using this in line with guidance and we have been testing frontline NHS staff in Wales for several weeks."

  18. 'Heartbreak' of dumping milk

    Farmers are being forced to dump milk because of a collapse in the market.

    Llyr Griffiths, a farmer in Llangoedmor, near Cardigan, had to dump his milk after his processor, which supplies coffee shops and cruises, lost the majority of its milk sales because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    He said: "It was heartbreaking. I had to dump £3,000-worth of milk in half an hour, while supermarkets apparently have empty shelves...

    "Getting rid of the milk in front of my four-year-old boy was difficult."

  19. How will Easter in lockdown affect family relationships?

    There could be rising tensions in family homes during the coronavirus pandemic, a researcher into relationships has said.

    Prof Jacqui Gabb from the Open University said people typically spend two-and-a-half hours together each day, but this has rocketed to 15 or 16 hours per day since lockdown began.

    "All the ingredients" for additional stresses on relationships are there, she says.
