Four more people have died in Wales after testing positive for Covid-19, taking the total number of deaths to 38, Public Health Wales has said.

Dr Robin Howe announced the update on Saturday, saying there were also 172 new cases of the virus in Wales, taking the number of confirmed cases to 1,093.

The true number of cases is likely to be higher as many people with symptoms are not being tested, he added.

Dr Howe offered his condolences to families and friends affected.
