Sixty more cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Wales, and one more person has died – but the official number in Powys remains unchanged.

Public Health Wales said there remain 11 confirmed cases in the county, while the spread across the country has continued.

However, with testing for the virus limited the likelihood is the true figure continues to be far higher.

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “60 new cases have tested positive for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wales, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 478, although the true number of cases is likely to be higher.

"One further death of an individual who has tested positive for Novel Coronavirus has been reported to us, taking the number of deaths in Wales to 17."

People no longer need contact 111 if they believe they have the symptoms of the virus, and can instead follow advice on the NHS website.

That advice changes for people if they feel they cannot cope with their symptoms at home, their condition gets worse, or their symptoms do not get better after seven days.
