Covid deaths remain at zero in Wales for second day running

Data trends show lower case numbers, fewer deaths and a high vaccine rollout

THERE have been zero Covid deaths in Wales for the past two days and positive hospital admissions have fallen to the lowest number since September.

As a result of sustained falls in Covid rates, from tomorrow the ‘stay local’ guidance that restricted movement in Wales will be relaxed, meaning that people can travel to anywhere in Wales with their household and up to six people from two households can meet outside.
