The number of people who have died after contracting coronavirus in Wales has increased by 10 in the past day, it has been announced.
Public Health Wales (PHW) confirmed on Saturday the total number of deaths since the outbreak began has reached 1,393.
The number of positive cases is now 14,356, a rise of 42 from the figures on Friday.
Dr Chris Williams, incident director for the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said the figure had been updated to include the number of deaths reported in Wales by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
He said: “On Friday our data dashboard was updated. Because this data is reported weekly by the ONS it will be updated on our dashboard on a weekly basis on Fridays.
“Public Health Wales welcomes increased testing resulting from Welsh participation in the UK-wide system.
“Since Thursday Public Health Wales has been reporting the number of tests for novel coronavirus (Covid-19) undertaken on Welsh residents in non-NHS Wales laboratories.
“Public Health Wales is currently undertaking work to review this data and determine how this links with our existing data from tests undertaken in NHS laboratories in Wales. Whilst this work is ongoing these figures have not been incorporated into any other outputs including the headline number of cases.”
He added that contact tracing continues in Wales as part of the Welsh Government’s Test, Trace, Protect strategy.
“Anyone who has a positive novel coronavirus (Covid-19) test will be contacted by a team of contact tracers and asked for details of everyone they have had close contact with while they have had symptoms.
“Please keep a note of your activities so you can easily remember your whereabouts on a given day along with who were in contact with. This is for everyone’s benefit and we are grateful for your continued cooperation.
“If you are asked to self-isolate you should also comply with this request to prevent further spread of the virus.
“You do not need to have any concerns about providing names to the tracing team. Tracers are trained staff and personal information that you provide will handled in line with data protection regulations and will not be shared widely.
The First Minister has confirmed the R-value is still around 0.8, adding that this “gives us only limited headroom to make changes”.
He said the tracing system will be another factor in creating room to make further easements. But he added Wales will only make decisions where it is comfortable this headroom exists.
