These figures are seven-day rolling totals for new population-adjusted cases (per 100,000 people). It’s important to remember that while these numbers are a helpful guide, they are only part of the story.

The latest seven-day infection rate in Wales on a case-per-100,000-person basis (for the seven days through November 28) now stands at 470 . See the table at the bottom of this article for all the latest figures across Wales.
