Two more coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Powys today.

Public Health Wales said the cases were among 102 found throughout Wales, and bring the total number of cases in Powys to 283 since the pandemic began.

So far 1,751 tests have been carried out in the county.

The number of people confirmed to have died with coronavirus remains at 13 – although latest Office for National Statistics data puts that at nearer 84 accounting for cross-border and unconfirmed cases.

Throughout Wales, 10 more people are known to have died, taking the national death toll to 1,317 during the current outbreak.

Dr Robin Howe, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “We welcome the Welsh Government announcement today that people from two different households in the same local area will be able to meet up outdoors from Monday, provided they continue to maintain social distancing and strict hand hygiene.

“We also welcome the caveat that, as a general rule, people should not travel more than five miles from home. This will help to reduce the risk of coronavirus spreading as people begin to travel more.

“Over the weekend, current social distancing rules remain in effect - stay home, protect the NHS, and save lives.

“Future relaxation of lockdown measures will also be dependent on everyone following advice set out in the ‘Test, Trace, Protect’ strategy, including self-isolating when required."
