A further nine people have died after being diagnosed with coronavirus, Public Health Wales have said. It takes the total number of deaths to 1,247.

166 more people have tested positive for the virus and the total number in Wales now stands at 12,846.

But Public Health Wales say the true number is likely to be higher.

It comes as NHS Wales boss Dr Andrew Goodall reiterated the advice for people in Wales to stay at home during this weekend's bank holiday.

Meanwhile, the Welsh Government have defended its care home testing policy after calls for it to be reported to the human rights watchdog.

The Older People's Commissioner for Wales suggested the Welsh Government should be examined by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) over delays to testing in care homes.

But health minister Vaughan Gething said that the advice and evidence was that there "wasn't a value" in testing people who were not symptomatic.
