Coronavirus cases now expected to rise in Wales because of outbreaks at meat factories

  Coronavirus cases now expected to rise in Wales because of outbreaks at meat factories Health Minister Vaughan Gething was speaking after the outbreaks in Anglesey and Wrexham and a cluster of cases in Merthyr Tydfil There have been fewer than 100 cases each day in the first weeks of June, but that is expected to increase in the coming days because of the outbreaks on Anglesey and Wrexham and a cluster that has been confirmed in Merthyr Tydfil.

The Office for National Statistics yesterday confirmed that 48,866 people in England and Wales died with confirmed or suspected Covid-19 by June 12. Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon revealed there had been no new deaths north of the border in an official government briefing this morning.

  The official estimate of the R number in Wales as it dips slightly and Scotland leads the UK Coronavirus appears to be spreading slowest in Scotland but the rate of spread in the UK has become very consistentNew estimates of how many people each person infected with Covid-19 is spreading the virus were drawn up by the UK's pandemic modelling body SPI(M) this week.

Another 36 people have died of coronavirus in hospitals in England , Wales and Northern Ireland, taking the total death toll to 43,550. Today's death toll is the joint lowest for a Sunday - which are notoriously low - since the day before lockdown started, March 22. It is on par with June 14, when

West Midlands had just one death more than it would expect to see in an average year (0.1 per cent).

Wales was continuing to see the most excess fatalities, with 7.7 per cent more people than usual dying in that week - a total of 44 more than the average 573.

Today's data shows the health impact of Covid-19 is continuing to shrink but there are still hundreds of people dying every week as lockdown begins to lift.

The latest figures do take into account any changes that might have happened as a result of people being allowed to spend unlimited amounts of time outside - which doesn't appear to have affected the death rate.

It may be too soon, however, to show any changes triggered by rules allowing people to meet in groups of six, or of high street shops reopening.

Both those measures began in June and statisticians say it takes three weeks or more for trends to emerge in data because it can take that long for people to die after catching Covid-19.
