OFFICIALS have confirmed 118 new coronavirus cases in Wales today.

It is the first time more than 100 cases a day have been confirmed for three days in a row since late March.

Latest figures published by Public Health Wales also show Wales' rolling weekly coronavirus case rate has risen again, to 13.5 per 100,000 people for the week to June 6.

The rate is set to go higher still, given the 'lag' of five days, as case numbers have also risen this week.

The number of cases confirmed in Wales since the pandemic began currently stands at 213,642.

2,201,665 people have now had a first dose of coronavirus vaccine - as at the end of yesterday - and 1,336,479 people have now completed their two-dose vaccine course.

The highest rolling weekly case rate in Wales, to June 6, is 34.1 per 100,000, in Conwy.

The Wales-wide test positivity rate for the week to June 6 is 1.4 per cent.

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.
