Forty-one more people in Wales have died from coronavirus, Public Health Wales has announced.

The body's latest data shows that the number of people in the country to have died from the disease has now risen to 286.

There have been no new confirmed cases in Powys, and only 16 across Wales – but this is because the body is changing the way it counts cases, meaning the new figures only cover a six-hour period.

The figures will show another increase tomorrow.

So far, Powys has seen 62 confirmed cases, although the true figure is thought to be far higher because of a lack of widespread testing.

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