Second Rhondda Cynon Taff pub linked a to spike in COVID- 19 cases
A second drinking establishment in the Rhondda valley in South Wales has come under the spotlight as two patrons tested positive for COVID-19.
The two infected patrons continued drinking daily at their regular whilst waiting for test results, to the disgust of many villagers in the region.
Having been branded as irresponsible Penygraig RFC Rhondda has issued a statement in regards to the two patrons visiting their club, whilst waiting for their coronavirus test results, which came back as positive and branded the two unnamed members as the irresponsible ones rather than the club.
The club has called the patrons “irresponsible”, and further stated, “We would urge anyone contacted by the Heath Authorities to please act responsibly and follow the Health Authorities guidance in order to help keep themselves, friends and family safe and well.”
“Along with fifty other premises in the area, the club has been visited by the Licencing Authorities. No improvement notice has been served and the club remains open.”
Penycraig is a village in the Rhondda valleys that is visited under normal circumstances by thousands of tourists per year due to its famous Ice cream making factory but local residents feel the actions of the Club have tarnished the reputation of the community.
Dai Jenkins, a villager born and bred told Global247news: ” Two idiots, two complete idiots butt” he told our local reporter
“Whilst its not the club’s fault, those two should be barred from the club for at least a year, they have brought shame on the village” he finished.
