Coronavirus cases in Wales: How many people have died?
Coronavirus has reached all areas of Wales
Four more people have died in Wales after contracting Covid-19 – taking the total number of deaths to 16, Public Health Wales has said.
Dr Giri Shankar announced the deaths on Monday, saying there were also 71 new cases of the virus in Wales, taking the total number of confirmed cases to 418.
It came as the Welsh Government wrote to all GPs and vulnerable people with extra guidance on shielding.
Dr Shankar offered condolences to the families and friends affected.
“Members of the public should continue to follow the latest public health advice on social isolation if they have symptoms of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, however mild, and the social distancing guidance to reduce the risk of transmission,” Dr Shankar added.
While there have been 418 confirmed cases, Public Health Wales (PHW) said the true figure is likely to be higher.
On Monday, PHW published the location of confirmed positive tests by local health board area:
- Aneurin Bevan: 35 new cases, a total of 220
- Swansea Bay: No new cases, a total of 47
- Cardiff and Vale: 20 new cases, a total of 84

Three cases are resident outside Wales and the location of one is still to be confirmed.
