No new coronavirus deaths have been reported in Wales for the fourth consecutive day, the latest figures show.
Public Health Wales (PHW), which records all lab-confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths, has published its latest daily update.
It is a drop in cases after 56 were confirmed on Sunday and 40 on Saturday
Dr Giri Shankar, Incident Director for the Novel Coronavirus at Publish Health Wales said: « I would make a direct appeal to young people to remember that even if they feel that they would not be badly affected by COVID-19 if they were to test positive for it, if they were to pass it on to older or more vulnerable family members, friends or colleagues it could be extremely serious, even fatal.
« Despite the lower infection rates in Wales, Coronavirus has not gone away. It remains the responsibility of everyone to help prevent the spread of this virus – that is, by self-isolating when asked to do so, staying two metres away from others, and by washing hands regularly. »
These are the areas with the highest seven-day rolling averages for new cases – one of the key benchmarks watched by Public Health Wales. All figures are reported as cases adjusted for population (per 100,000 people):
He also revealed that they had identified at least 16 confirmed cases of Covid-19 from three different parties who were on TUI Flight 6215 from Zante to Cardiff on 25 August.
He says: « Seven out of the sixteen were infectious at the time of flying. As a result, we are advising that all passengers on this flight are considered close contacts and must self-isolate.
“These passengers will be contacted shortly, but meanwhile, they must self-isolate at home as they may become infectious, even without developing symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should book a test without delay.
“Our investigations into a number of cases of Coronavirus have indicated that a lack of social distancing, in particular by a minority of the 20-30 year age group, has resulted in the spread of the virus to other groups of people. »
In the local health authorities there were 12 new cases in Cardiff, eight in Aneurin Bevan, seven in Swansea Bay, six in Cwm Taff Morgannwg, three each in Betsi Cadwaladr and Hywel Dda and none in Powys.
