TEN new coronavirus cases have been confirmed in North Wales.

Figures released by Public Health Wales today (June 29) show there were five new confirmed cases in Wrexham, with no new cases recorded in either Flintshire or Denbighshire.

These figures take the total of confirmed cases in Wrexham to 825 with Flintshire remaining at 523.

Regionally, the latest figures show there were ten new cases confirmed in the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board region as a whole taking the overall total up to 3,641.

In Wales as a whole there were 26 cases newly reported.

Three more people have died who had tested positive for coronavirus across Wales.

To date, 137,853 people have undergone coronavirus tests in Wales and 122,110 tests came back negative.

Today's figures come as lockdown restrictions are due to be eased further in Wales.

Dr Giri Shankar, Incident Director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Public Health Wales welcomes the introduction of extended households in Wales, meaning that people from two separate households are able to join together from Monday 6th July, as long as cases of coronavirus continue to fall across the country.

“The new arrangement will mean that people in the extended household will be able to meet indoors, without social distancing. It should be noted, however, that if anyone from the extended household develops coronavirus symptoms, then the whole extended household will need to self-isolate, not just those who live together."
