This will bring the total number of laboratory-confirmed coronavirus deaths in Wales to 1899. The true death toll in Wales where Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate is 2,762, according to the ONS.
There were only four days during the first wave of spring where more deaths were reported in a 24-hour period – and two of them were distorted by the inclusion of previously missed historical data in statistics.
Mental Health and Welfare and Welsh Language Minister Eluned Morgan said: ‘It is with great regret that I tell you that Public Health Wales will report today on 44 more deaths.
“My thoughts are with all those who mourn and mourn the loss of a loved one at an already difficult time. ”
The death toll fell from four on Tuesday and is the highest since the start of the second wave in September. The latest prices in your area here.
In the first wave, there was a day where there were 110 of them, but that was partly because they had missed deaths in North Wales before that.
The deaths reported today have all occurred within the past six days due to the time it takes for reports to reach Public Health Wales.
Ms Morgan also said Public Health Wales will confirm another 1,200 cases of the coronavirus in Wales, but the actual number of infections will be much higher.
She added, “The coronavirus has impacted the physical health of many people, but it also has a tremendous impact on the mental and emotional health and well-being of people, across the population.
“There are those who feel more than just a general sense of frustration with this pandemic, struggling with feelings of anger, anxiety, depression, fear, worry and even hopelessness.
“Too often, however, many forget or fail to acknowledge their heightened anxiety, try to ignore negative feelings and hope they go away.
“It’s really important that we can recognize these feelings and that we can talk about them openly. ”
