Dr Giri Shankar, Incident Director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “We urge anyone over 50 who has not yet received an invite for their vaccination to contact their local health board.

“Mirroring arrangements at Christmas time, we did not publish Coronavirus data on our dashboard on Good Friday (2 April) or on Easter Sunday (4 April). We anticipated that the reported case numbers produced on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 April 2021 would therefore be around double the usual 24 hour figure.
“The reported case numbers for Tuesday 6 April, which cover the 48 hour period up to 9am on Monday 5 April, has followed the anticipated trend.
“We are also making some changes to the way we publish information on our website and data dashboard.
“Starting on 17 April, we will no longer be publishing Coronavirus data or a daily statement on our website on Saturdays. Our surveillance team will however retain the ability to ramp back up to seven day reporting if necessary.
“The Welsh Government has announced a series of measures over the coming months which will take Wales into Alert Level 3 by 17 May, subject to public health conditions remaining favourable.
“On 12 April, all children will return to face to face education, all post-16 learners will return to further education, and training centres and university campuses will be able to open for blended face to face learning for all students.
“On the same day, all remaining shops can reopen, and all close contact services including mobile services can resume.
“In addition, travel restrictions on travelling into and out of Wales will be lifted. However, restrictions on travel to countries outside the Common Travel Area without a reasonable excuse, remain in place.
“Also on 12 April, viewings at wedding venues can resume by appointment, and outdoor canvassing for elections can begin.
“This slight easing of Covid lockdown rules is encouraging, however while the number of cases is declining overall, there are still several areas which have significantly higher rates.
“We remind the general public that that Coronavirus has not gone away, and that there is still a large number of people who have not been vaccinated. It is therefore vital that we all maintain constant vigilance, by keeping 2m apart from people that you don’t live with, practising hand hygiene, and wearing a mask in indoor environments.
“Welsh Government restrictions state that you should not go into any other household or mix indoors with other people who you don’t live with.”
