Over 1.5 million people have now had at least one dose - equating to nearly half of Wales' total population.

Dr Giri Shankar, incident director for the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak response at Public Health Wales, said: “We urge anyone over 50 who has not yet received an invite for their vaccination to contact their local health board.

“The Welsh Government has announced a series of measures over the coming months which will take Wales into Alert Level 3 by May 17, subject to public health conditions remaining favourable.

“This slight easing of Covid lockdown rules is encouraging, however while the number of cases is declining overall, there are still several areas which have significantly higher rates.

“We remind the general public that that coronavirus has not gone away, and that there is still a large number of people who have not been vaccinated. It is therefore vital that we all maintain constant vigilance, by keeping 2m apart from people that you don’t live with, practising hand hygiene, and wearing a mask in indoor environments."
