There have been no newly-confirmed cases of coronavirus in Powys today, data from Public Health Wales has shown.

After 12 new cases since last Monday, the latest figures revealed no newly-confirmed incidents of Covid-19 in the latest round of figures.

It provides positive news amid warnings that a small increase had been seen in Welshpool, leading to a testing station being established in the town today.

Across Wales, 51 more new cases have been confirmed, meaning there have been 18,206 diagnoses of coronavirus in the country since the outbreak began.

No more people have died.

Dr Robin Howe, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said one group of people, of various ages, had helped with the growth of a new outbreak in Caerphilly.

“There has been a significant rise in positive coronavirus cases in Caerphilly in the past week, and our investigations indicate that a lack of social distancing by a small group of people of all age groups, in a range of different locations has resulted in the spread of the virus to other parts of the population," he said.

“It appears that as lockdown restrictions have eased, people have taken advantage of the greater possibilities for activities, but they seem to have forgotten the importance of social distancing – resulting in possible transmission in the wider community.

“It is clear that the virus spreads more easily in indoor settings, and people should take extra care to socially distance in these cases to keep themselves and their friends and families as safe as possible."

He also said there had been a small number of cases in Porth and Penygraig in Rhondda Cynon Taff.
