One more person with coronavirus has died in Powys, taking the total to 15.

Public Health Wales data shows there has been no new cases reported in the county, meaning the total number of people who have tested positive for the virus remains at 300.

Powys Teaching Health Board has suggested that the Office for National Statistics (ONS) data is more accurate, and that shows 90 deaths where coronavirus may have been present since the epidemic began.

Public Health Wales figures relate to cases where coronavirus has been confirmed, and only include people who have died in hospital settings in Wales.

As such, this excludes people who have died in hospitals in England, those who have passed away in care homes, and those who died without having been tested to confirm the presence of coronavirus.

Dr Giri Shankar, Incident Director for the Novel Coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Testing of the workforce associated with an outbreak of Novel Coronavirus in the Wrexham area is continuing.

“Public Health Wales is in the process of combining test information to identify the total number of positive cases associated with the workforce at Rowan Foods Ltd. So far this process has identified a total of 166 confirmed cases.

“The number of cases reported today suggests no change has occurred in the past 24 hours. However, we expect this number to go up once all the workers associated with the site have been tested and their results analysed.

“We are working with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board to urgently contact just over 300 workers that have not yet presented for testing.

“As we would expect with any focused track and trace process, we will identify additional asymptomatic cases. Finding these cases does not mean that the rate of infection in the Wrexham area is increasing as a whole.

“There is no evidence that Rowan Foods is the source of the outbreak. The multi-agency team managing the outbreak with Public Health Wales will continue to review the situation and work with the employer, their workforce and wider community to bring this outbreak to a swift conclusion.

"Following the multi-agency Outbreak Control Team meeting which took place on Friday 26 June, a total of 210 cases of Novel Coronavirus have been identified in the workforce associated with the 2 Sisters plant in Llangefni, Anglesey. This represents a small increase of six positive cases reported in the past 24-hour period.

“The increase in reported cases is low, which is reassuring and is evidence that the control measures put in place combined with the rapid testing process, have worked.

“There is no evidence to suggest that the outbreak among the workforce at the 2 Sisters plant has led to significant community transmission.

“It should be noted that any increase in the number of cases found in the workforce does not mean that the infection is increasing in the local population as a whole.

“Public Health Wales continues to work with multi-agency partners with regard to a small cluster of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases at the Kepak Merthyr meat processing facility.

“A total of 29 verified positive cases have been recorded from workers since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, with nine of those cases occurring since 1 June 2020 when Wales moved into the recovery phase of the COVID-19 response.

“We are reminding the public and media that no outbreak has so far been declared at the site, and that investigations are ongoing.

“A Health and Safety Executive visit has been carried out at the site and HSE officers were satisfied that Kepak Merthyr are taking all reasonably practicable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the workforce.

“The company, supported by Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board are carrying out widespread, rapid testing activity of its workforce.
