    Covid in Wales: What do the stats tell us?

    What can 9 เคล็ดลับการชนะสำหรับเกม SLOTXO different statistics tell us about coronavirus in Wales?

    We seem to be bombarded with different measures, but what do they mean and how does Wales compare with other parts of the UK?

    Here, we try to answer some of the questions and bring in some of the key areas of data – covering case rates, hospital cases, vaccination, testing and deaths.

    Where in Wales are most cases?
    Case rates can tell us how many people with Covid-19 symptoms are presenting themselves for tests which then come back positive.

    Public Health Wales (PHW) said while infection levels had fallen in recent weeks, there were “still several areas which have substantially higher rates”.

    Merthyr Tydfil had fallen from a peak of 1,349 cases per 100,000 and the UK’s highest a week before Christmas. There has been an increase in the last week and once again it is the highest in Wales at 159.1. It was also the 5th highest in the UK. This is its highest point since January but is still a long way from the levels seen in previous months.

    A “bit of a loss of discipline” has been blamed by health officials.

    Gellideg and Merthyr Town is the localised hotpot with 44 cases in the past week, nearly half of those in the county. The council has deployed a mobile testing unit to the Swansea Road estate in the meantime.

    There has been a big turnaround in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT), where the case rate has dipped to around 30, its lowest point since the start of September.

    How many tests are positive?
    The proportion of positive tests, alongside the case rates, is being looked at as an important indicator on the road out of lockdown.

    The positivity rate in Wales on 18 March remained at 3.9%.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended the positivity proportion of tests should be no more than 5% for a stable period before areas come out of restrictions.
