“Going forward, news relating to the pandemic will be communicated to the public via the News section of the Public Health Wales website, and to the media via press releases.

“These changes will not affect our surveillance dashboard, which will continue to report six days a week. Our social media posts announcing case numbers and deaths will also continue.

“We will maintain the ability to reintroduce the daily statement if necessary.

“Welsh Government has announced that from Monday 17 May, up to six people from six households will be able to meet in indoor regulated settings, such as cafes, pubs and restaurants.

“The variant B.1.617.2, one of the variants first identified in India, has been designated as a Variant of Concern (VOC21APR-02) due to its high transmissibility. There is no evidence of wider community transmission of this variant in Wales at present, and the Kent variant remains the dominant strain here."
