It is with sadness I report that a further 2 people who tested positive for COVID-19 have died. This takes the number of deaths in Wales to 5.

I offer my sincere condolences to their families and friends, and ask that their privacy is respected at this sad time.

The patients were a 75 year old who died at Singleton Hospital, and a 98 year old who died at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Both patients had underlying health conditions.
