TEN new coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Flintshire and Wrexham.

Public Health Wales figures released on Sunday (May 2) show that five new cases have each been confirmed in the two counties.

Wrexham's seven-day infection rate is currently one of the highest in Wales at 21.3 - but is in the context of very low rates across the country.

No new coronavirus-related deaths have been registered in the latest 24 hour period.

Over 750,000 people in Wales have had both doses of the vaccine, with 1.8 million having had at least one dose.

Dr Eleri Davies, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “Over the Bank Holiday weekend, we would remind the general public that it is still extremely important to follow social distancing and hygiene measures to prevent the transmission of coronavirus.

"That is, staying 2m from anyone you don’t live with, washing hands regularly and wearing face coverings in indoor settings.

“The Welsh Government has confirmed further relaxation of measures from 3 May. Supervised indoor activities for children can resume, along with indoor organised activities for up to 15 adults (such as exercise classes and swimming lessons), and community centres can reopen.

“People should observe social distancing when meeting with others from outside their household or support bubble."
