They have been published to provide a weekly summary of data on coronavirus testing.

The data are management information, not official statistics, and are revised regularly. The Public Health Wales surveillance dashboard is updated daily with the most recent data, including revisions to the data published here.

Antigen lateral flow tests (such as those being used at the mass testing centres in Merthyr Tydfil) are not included in this publication. If a person receives a positive result from an antigen lateral flow test then they are required to complete a standard swab antigen test which would be included in the data presented.
