Public Health Wales no longer reports coronavirus data on Saturdays, which means Monday’s figures represent 48 hours through 9 a.m. on Sunday.

The latest infection rate across Wales is now 169.3 per 100,000 people based on the seven days to August 11, compared to 156.6 recorded on Sunday. Eighteen of Wales’ 22 local authorities saw their infection rates rise over seven days.

The figures are based on the date a test was performed, not the date a test was put on the system, meaning it accurately reflects the speed at which the virus is spreading in the Country of Wales.

The area with the highest infection rate in Wales remains Denbighshire with 339.6 new cases per 100,000 population, followed by Conwy with 244. Meanwhile, the percentage of positive tests across the country is now by 12% – against 11.3% reported Sunday.

The area with the most cases in the last 48 hour period was Rhondda Cynon Taf with 231, followed by Cardiff with 207, Flintshire with 145, Neath Port Talbot and Powys with 137, Swansea with 135, Newport with 133 , Wrexham with 127 and Denbighshire with 102. The lowest numbers recorded were at Blaenau Gwent (33), Merthyr Tydfil (32) and Anglesey (21).

As of August 12, there were 155 people in general and acute hospital beds with confirmed (104), suspected (25) and recovering (26) cases of coronavirus.
