COVID: Conwy infection rates are double many parts of Wales


June 13, 2021

New cases of coronavirus have been on the increase since the start of June and despite localised testing to contain the Delta variant, it has been confirmed that Conwy county now has double the rate of infection compared to many other parts of Wales.

In the past week, the county has recorded 42.7 cases per 100,000 of the population against the North Wales average of 19.9 cases.  There is also evidence that new cases may now be spreading eastwards along the coast into Denbighshire and Flintshire.

Whilst hospital admissions remain relatively low, health bosses at Betsi Cadwaladr are keen to ensure that any third wave is minimised by urging members of the public to follow the rules on social distancing and undertaking regular testing.

In the last 7 days, which also includes figures published today (Sunday 13 Jun), Conwy recorded 50 cases. There have been 25 in Gwynedd, 22 in Flintshire, 16 in Denbighshire, 15 in Wrexham and 11 on Anglesey.

Bayside has been pausing daily reporting of Covid-19 whilst new cases in North Wales have receeding but will continue to update on the picture across the North Wales coast in response to new outbreaks and clusters.
