Four more people in Powys have been confirmed to have coronavirus – but only 278 people in the county have been tested for the disease.

Latest figures from Public Health Wales reveal that the total number of coronavirus cases confirmed in the county now stands at 62, after the increase from Tuesday.

It means there are 46.8 cases confirmed per 100,000 people in the county.

However, the latest data also shows that only 278 people have received tests for the virus – 209 per 100,000 people, or one in 478.

That is well below the Wales-wide testing rate of 442.3 tests per 100,000 residents.

Across Wales, 284 more people have tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 4,073, although the true number of cases is likely to be higher in all areas.

Another 33 people have died from the virus, taking the total to 245. No confirmed deaths have yet been announced in Powys.

Dr Robin Howe, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: "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 this 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."
