ALMOST 100 new coronavirus cases were reported across Wales today, latest figures show as restrictions ease further.

Public Health Wales confirmed on May 17 that 91 cases of Covd-19 were recorded across Wales - of which 20 were in the North.

They can be broken down as such:

• Anglesey – 0

• Conwy – 3 (2.6 per 100,000 population)

• Denbighshire – 2 (2.1 per 100,000 population)

• Flintshire – 6 (3.8 per 100,000 population)

• Gwynedd – 1 (0.8 per 100,000 population)

• Wrexham – 8 (5.9 per 100,000 population)

• Total confirmed COVID-19 cases from North Wales as of May 17 – 35,137

The Public Health Wales dashboard says that due to a lag in receiving data, cases sampled in recent days will not be fully reflected in these data, so the most recent incidence is likely to be an underestimate.
