Corona virus: Ex-Lib Dem president ‘seriously ill’

Corona virus: Ex-Lib Dem president

The previous leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats is “genuinely sick” in medical clinic with corona virus.

William Powell, who was an Assembly Member for the Mid and West Wales district somewhere in the range of 2011 and 2016, speaks to Talgarth on Powys committee.

“The entire party is crushed to find out about William’s condition,” said Jane Dodds, pioneer of the Welsh Lib Dems.

The acting head of the UK Liberal Democrats, Ed Davey, said it was “stressing news”.

It comes as Public Health Wales uncovered 10 all the more individuals have passed on in Wales in the wake of testing positive for Covid-19, taking the all out number of passings to 48.

It is the greatest day by day ascend in the Welsh figures since the principal passing was declared on 16 March.

Twitter post by @Kishan_Devani: Absolutely shattered & devastated @WmPowell2016 my dear family friend/colleague - Fmr President #WelshLibDems & @LibDems Board Member has been admitted to hospital seriously ill with #Covid_19. Bill is one of the finest men I know. I'm in constant touch with his family. #Pray4Him

Dr Giri Shankar said there were 148 new affirmed cases, which means there have currently been an aggregate of 1,241 positive tests.

Ms Dodds included: “We realize he is getting the most ideal consideration from our flexible and persevering human services staff and we trust he makes a quick and full recuperation soon.”

The gathering’s contender for Montgomeryshire at the last broad political race, Kishan Devani, said on Twitter he was “totally broken and crushed” to know about the news.
