Concern as Covid cases creep up in one local zone

Created on 16/05/2021 @ 09:11


Thirteen areas of Wales have crept back up to recording more than 50 positive cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people over the past seven days, including 'Llanfyllin & Llanwddyn'.

The figures were released on Friday by Public Health Wales and show that the one local zone has experienced an increase to 54.7 after weeks of declining numbers.

The slight Welsh upturn has forced First Minister, Mark Drakeford, to halt some of the lockdown easing that he had planned for tomorrow, but pubs and restaurants will still be able to go ahead and open indoors for the first time since December.

The vaccination programme for second doses is also expected to be ramped up in the coming weeks.

Public Health Wales publishes the figures weekly and it provides the numbers for areas with an average of 7,000 people, called middle super output areas (MSOA). 

The data shows there is one area of Wales, ‘Stow Hill, Newport’, with 122 cases per 100,000 of population.

While most are in Newport and Cardiff, Wrexham West and Harlech & Llanbedr, also join Llanfyllin & Llanwddyn on the 50+ list.

The areas with the most cases are:

Stow Hill, Newport - 122

Pembrey & Burry Port, Carmarthenshire - 96.2

South Riverside, Cardiff - 94.2

Cathays South & Bute Park, Cardiff - 86.9

Splott, Cardiff - 81.1

Cathays North, Cardiff - 74.2

Harlech & Llanbedr, Gwynedd - 67.3

Bettws, Newport - 62.2

Wrexham West, Wrexham - 60

Victoria & Somerton, Newport - 59

Llanfyllin & Llanwyddyn, Powys - 54.7

Caerleon, Newport - 51.4

Malpas, Newport - 51
