Covid in Wales: What do the stats tell us?




What can different ดาวน์โหลดslotxo statistics tell us about coronavirus in Wales?

Here, we regularly update some of the key areas of data for measuring the pandemic, covering case rates, Covid patients in hospital, the number of deaths and programmes such as vaccination and testing.

We also try to explain some of the different measures being used.


Where in Wales are most cases?
Case rates can tell us how many people with Covid-19 symptoms are presenting themselves for tests that then come back positive.

Low numbers everywhere show vaccinations are having an impact, with far fewer people experiencing symptoms, although there is concern about the faster transmission of the Delta variant, which is now present in Wales.

Wales has reported 56 new positive tests a day on average in the past seven days, a slight uptick.

It compares with 39 cases a day a month ago and 2,864 cases a day at the peak in December.

Late reporting of more than 200 cases has meant it will be a few days before a backlog is processed and a precise pattern emerges of this case rate increase.


How many tests are positive?
The proportion of tests which come back positive has been another key indicator.

The positivity rate in Wales is at 1.3% - its highest point since 24 April but still well within the recommended range.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended the positivity proportion of tests should be no more than 5% for a stable period, before areas come out of restrictions.

All local authority areas all have been within the 5% positivity threshold for more than two months.

On average, Wales has been below this threshold for more than 90 days.
