COVID-19 UK Update: Seven more deaths reported in Wales

A further seven people have now died from Coronavirus in Wales.

The announcement was made by The Chief Medical Officer for Wales, Dr Frank Atherton.

None of the deaths were in North Wales.

He said: “It is with deep sadness I can confirm a further seven deaths of patients in Wales who tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“This takes the number of deaths in Wales to 12.

“My thoughts are with their families and friends, and I ask that their privacy is respected at this very sad time.”

Five of the deaths were in the Royal Gwent Hospital, one in Nevill Hall and one in Prince Charles Hospital.

All were in the high-risk category, either over-70 or with underlying health conditions.

It comes after a 98-year-old died yesterday at Ysbyty Gwynedd after contracting the virus.
