THERE have been a further 113 new cases of coronavirus confirmed across Wales and one new death confirmed - in Gwent - the first fatality in the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board area for two weeks.

Rolling weekly case rates continue to rise in most parts of Wales, and the Wales-wide rate - to June 5, the latest data available - is 12.4 per 100,000 people, the highest in more than six weeks. 

The number of cases confirmed in Wales since the pandemic began now stands at 213,524 according to Public Health Wales.

2,195,485 people have now had a first dose of coronavirus vaccine - as at the end of yesterday - and 1,314,368 people have now completed a 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 significantly higher.
