    • Thirteen more deaths of people with coronavirus have been confirmed in Wales, bringing the total to 154
    • The total number of confirmed cases now stands at 2,853 in Wales, but the true number is likely to be higher as not everyone is being tested

  2. 'Most obeying the rules'

    Virginia Crosbie, MP for Ynys Môn, spent some time with North Wales Police today.

    She told BBC Wales: "People are worried about other people coming on to the island and I have seen this on social media, so I thought I would take a look at it myself.

    "So there was a big police presence today, loads of vans and pulling absolutely everybody over.

    "I was really, really pleased that only a handful of people came along - one man had wanted to see a friend but really most are staying at home...

    "Most people are staying in and doing the right thing - it really is a minority - yes there are people who are here on holiday but most people are obeying the rules."

  12. Total UK deaths rise by over 700 in 24 hours

    The latest UK coronavirus figures have been released by the UK government.

    Officials says that as of 17:00 BST on Friday, 3 April, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 4,313 have died - an increase of 708 from the previous day.

    As of 09:00 BST on Saturday a total of 183,190 people have been tested of whom 41,903 have tested positive.

    The BBC's head of statistics, Robert Cuffe says:

    "The figure of 708 new deaths is a record high, but it is also below scientific expectations.

    "Deaths have been growing by just under 25% each day. That means doubling every 3.5 days.

    "A continuation of that would have taken us from 684 deaths on Friday to more than 800.

    "The first day of a below-trend growth is too soon to call a turn, but there is hope that the slowdown we're seeing in case numbers will eventually feed through into the numbers of new deaths."

  13. Public Health Wales statement

    In announcing the latest figures for the number of deaths linked to coronavirus and new cases, incident director Dr Chris Williams from Public Health Wales said the true number of cases was likely to be higher.

    “We offer our condolences to families and friends affected, and we ask those reporting on the situation to respect patient confidentiality," he added.

    “Public Health Wales has conducted more than 13,000 tests for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on more than 11,000 individuals since the start of this outbreak.

    “Following publication of a new Chinese study which shows smokers with COVID-19 are 14 times more likely to develop severe disease, we encourage all smokers that want to stop to use NHS Wales’ free Help Me Quit stop smoking advice and phone support service."
