Coronavirus UK Updates: Fourteen more people with COVID-19 die in Wales

A further 14 people have died with coronavirus bringing the death toll in Wales to 997 on Monday.

Public Health Wales also said 195 new cases of the virus had been reported today.

There have been 10,524 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Wales to date.

The actual number of cases is likely to be higher, as not everyone with symptoms has been tested for the virus.

Public Health Wales is working with the military to deploy a number of mobile testing units.

Three of these units were available last week, and a further five will become available this week.

Officials said once these units are deployed, their ongoing management will be handed over to the relevant health boards.

Today the First Minister told a daily Covid-19 briefing that the consideration of lockdown restrictions will be the “primary focus” of the Welsh Government this week.

Mark Drakeford said he believed a “four nation approach” to easing lockdown would work best.

“Across the United Kingdom, we entered lockdown on the same day and on the same basic terms”, he told the press conference.

“I believe that it would be best if we could begin to lift lockdown through a set of common measures, implemented to a common timetable”.
