No new Covid-19 deaths reported in Wales for the second day this week
No new coronavirus deaths have been reported in Wales today for the second time this week.
Public Health Wales confirmed no new reported deaths from Covid-19 today, after also doing so on Monday.
The total number of people who have died remains at 1,540.
Public Health Wales figures also showed there were 10 new cases reported, bringing the total to 15,939.
The figures are revised retrospectively so deaths could be added in the future. They can also show fewer deaths on certain days when they are assigned to their correct dates – their figures also now show no deaths on 18 June as well as 3, 4, 5 July.
The Office for National Statistics also publishes figures on a weekly basis that show all registered deaths where Covid-19 is suspected, including outside of hospitals such as in care homes or at home.
Scotland reported its first day with no deaths from coronavirus on 7 June, and Northern Ireland on 26 May. England is yet to report a day without any deaths since March.
