223 new Covid cases have been confirmed by Public Health Wales today, though no deaths.

The increase comes amid rising concerns over the spread of the Delta variant in Wales, on the heels of it gaining a foothold in other parts of the UK.

The rolling weekly case rate in Wales - to June 4, the latest data available - rose slightly again, to 11.2 per 100,000 people.

The number of cases confirmed in Wales since the pandemic began stands at 213,411.

2,190,460 people in Wales have now had a first vaccine dose and 1,291,699 peole have  completed their two-dose vaccine course.

Public Health Wales figures include reports of the deaths of hospitalised patients in Welsh hospitals, or care home residents, where Covid-19 has been confirmed with a positive laboratory test, and the clinician suspects this was a causative factor in the death.

They do not include people who may have died of Covid-19 but who were not confirmed by laboratory testing, those who died in other settings, or Welsh residents who died outside of Wales, and the true number of Covid-19 deaths will be higher.

The Office for National Statistics - which counts all deaths in which coronavirus is mentioned on the death certificate - puts the number of deaths in Wales much higher.
