Powys appears to be winning its battle to eradicate Covid-19 after it was reported by the Office for National Statistics that there were no deaths recorded during its latest seven-day period to July 3.

The ONS’s latest seven-day update, the most accurate, shows that 92 Powys residents have sadly died in connection with the virus, the same figure released the past two weeks. This includes those that have sadly died in hospitals across the border.

Public Health Wales records show that just 325 Powys residents have tested positive from 6007 tests since the beginning of March. This figure does not include the people who have tested positive through the Test and Track system, and yesterday it was revealed that figure was 28 for June alone.

Despite the encouraging news, health chiefs are still advising residents to follow the restrictions and guidance in place as we head towards more relaxing of the rules next week, including the reopening of pubs and hair dressers.
