Coronavirus deaths in Wales rise by 36 bringing total to 351

A further 36 people in Wales have died after testing positive for coronavirus bringing the total number of deaths to 351.

There were another 340 cases, taking the total to 4,930.

However the real figure is thought to be far more as not everyone has been tested.

Dr Chris Williams, Incident Director for Public Health Wales, said: "We offer our condolences to families and friends affected, and we ask those reporting on the situation to respect patient confidentiality."

On Friday, First Minister, Mark Drakeford said he will only relax social distancing measures "when the evidence shows it is safe" and not be "looking over our shoulders at what others are doing".

He also warned that social restrictions could be "tightened", including people not being allowed outside to exercise, if there is "large-scale flouting" of the guidelines.

The First Minister praised the majority of the public for adhering to the "enormous burden" of staying inside but added that fines could be increased if that changes, urging people to avoid going outside during the warm Easter bank holiday weekend.
