THREE new coronavirus cases in the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board region have been reported, latest figures show.

Data released by Public Health Wales shows that the three cases were spread across three North Wales county areas with one each – namely in Conwy, Denbighshire and Wrexham.

This means that - as of July 6 - the Anglesey, Flintshire and Gwynedd areas saw no new cases of the virus.

Wrexham’s one new case reported of COVID-19, bringing the county total to 869 infections to date. Across North Wales, the three new cases bring the region to 3,720.

Across Wales, no new deaths have been reported in the last 24 hours – remaining at 1,531 people that have sadly lost their lives to this virus.

Throughout the country, there has been a total of 15,898 positive cases of COVID-19 to date, of which eight are newly reported.

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Starting today, the requirement to stay local has been lifted by the Welsh Government. Also, people from two separate households are now permitted to join together to form one exclusive extended household, and this includes people who are shielding.

“We all have a vital role in preventing the spread of Coronavirus by always sticking to social distancing guidelines – that’s staying two metres away from others and washing hands regularly. You should also avoid car sharing with people outside your household.

“Contact tracing continues in Wales as part of the Welsh Government’s Test, Trace, Protect strategy. Anyone who has a positive Coronavirus 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 you were in contact with.

“If you are asked to self-isolate, you should also comply with this request to prevent further spread of the virus.

“Tracers are trained staff and personal information that you provide will handled in line with data protection regulations and will not be shared widely.

“Information about the symptoms of Coronavirus is available on the Public Health Wales website, or members of the public can use the NHS Wales symptom checker.

“Anyone experiencing Coronavirus symptoms can apply for a home testing kit by visiting, or by calling the national 119 phone service.

“Anyone with suspected coronavirus should not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. They should only contact NHS 111 if they feel they cannot cope with their symptoms at home, their condition gets worse, or their symptoms do not get better after seven days.

“Only call 999 if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, do not call 999 just because you are on hold to 111. We appreciate that 111 lines are busy, but you will get through after a wait.”
