SIX new coronavirus cases have been confirmed in North Wales in the last day, the latest data shows.

Public Health Wales figures released on Friday show that six of Wales' 18 new cases came in the north of the country.

Wrexham and Flintshire each registered one new confirmed case - taking their respective totals to 1,373 and 754.

There were no new coronavirus related deaths reported in North Wales, nor Wales as a whole - leaving the country's total of suspected coronavirus deaths at 1,586.

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Following an Outbreak Control Team meeting on 12 August, there continues to be no evidence of widespread transmission in the Wrexham community.

“Advice on travelling abroad, including the latest information on quarantine requirements on returning home, can be found on the FCO website.

“Public Health Wales supports the recent announcement of the four UK Chief Medical Officers to extend the self-isolation period from seven to 10 days for those in the community who have symptoms or a positive test result. This will help provide additional protection to others in the community.

"Anyone with suspected symptoms of COVID-19 infection - a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss of smell or taste (anosmia) - must self-isolate and seek an urgent test.

"Confirmed cases must now isolate for 10 days, with members of their household isolating for 14 days until the risk of passing on further infection has gone. Combined, these simple but effective actions will ensure the virus does not spread."
