Three more people in Powys have been diagnosed with coronavirus, Public Health Wales said today.

The latest confirmed cases take the county's running total to 58 – although because of the lack of widespread testing the true figure is thought to be considerably higher.

Across Wales, the number has risen by 291 to take the total to 3,790. Another 19 people have now died, meaning that Wales has lost 212 people to the pandemic.

The number of confirmed cases nationally is likely to increase in the days to come after a testing station was set up for key workers in Cardiff. A similar arrangement has also been made in Shrewsbury, outside the town's football stadium, which is by appointment only.

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: "291 new cases have tested positive for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wales, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 3,790, although the true number of cases is likely to be higher.

"Public Health Wales has conducted more than 15,000 tests for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on more than 13,000 individuals since the start of this outbreak.

"As part of our efforts to continually expand testing, there is now a Deloitte testing facility operational at Cardiff City Stadium. This is part of the UK-wide plan to test key workers. In Wales has been led by Public Health Wales, Welsh Government, the Local Resilience Forum, and Deloitte. Please note that the facility is for key workers and you should only attend if invited.

“Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is now circulating in every part of Wales. The single most important action we can all take in fighting Coronavirus is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS, and save lives.

“We want to thank each and every person across Wales for doing their bit to help slow the spread of the virus."
