Welsh Government's coronavirus update

Latest coronavirus update from the Welsh Government (dated yesterday) is: 

Coronavirus in numbers

  • The number of people who have received a Covid vaccine in Wales is being published every weekday by Public Health Wales.
  • The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has today published statistics on provisional weekly deaths, including deaths involving Covid-19 for the week ending 12 March 2021.
    • The cumulative number of deaths involving Covid-19 occurring in Welsh residents up to 12 March 2021 was 7,731.
    • Of these, there were provisionally 68 deaths involving Covid-19 registered in Welsh residents in the week ending 12 March. This was 35 fewer than the previous week. The number of registered deaths involving Covid has declined for eight successive weeks and is at its lowest level since late October.
    • For the period 7 March 2020 to 12 March 2021, there were a total of 5,600 excess deaths (17%) above the five-year average.
    • More deaths involving Covid were registered in the second wave of the pandemic than the first.
    • The excess death rate for Wales for the pandemic period to date was lower in Wales than in England.
    • For the latest week, both England and Wales saw deaths below the five-year average.
    • The numbers reported by ONS are different from those from Public Health Wales because of different reporting methods and timing.
