EIGHTY one new coronavirus cases have been confirmed in North Wales, according to the latest public health data.

There were also 15 new confirmed cases in Wrexham and 32 confirmed in Flintshire.

There have been 21 new suspected Covid-related deaths across Wales.

To date, the total number of people in Wales who have died after testing positive for coronavirus stands at 5,032.

So far, 1,566,364 people have undergone coronavirus tests in Wales.

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Although the data currently shows that on an all-Wales level the numbers of cases are reducing and that the incidence is now below 120 cases per 100,000 population, the rates in some areas – particularly in North Wales – are still at nearly double that, and there have been small increases in others.

“It is encouraging to see that the numbers of people being treated for Coronavirus in our hospitals is reducing, there are still a large number of people who are extremely ill, which means that the pressure on services is still very high.

“All of Wales remains in lockdown.

“We recognise that complying with the restrictions can be challenging, but Coronavirus is still active in our communities and can cause severe illness and death.

“The reduction in the number of cases does not mean that people can meet people from other households (apart from one person for socially distanced exercise), as this can cause the virus to spread.

“As a nation, we have made so many sacrifices throughout the course of the pandemic that we really don’t want to squander the gains that have been made in recent weeks.”
