This means that Powys Teaching Health Board currently has 79.3 Coronavirus cases per 100,000 members of the population.

This indicates that cases have increased as Radar reported there were 55 new cases yesterday.

In the last seven day period for Powys, between March 6 and March 12, there were 323 cases.

The latest figure also means that the total number of cases in the health board’s area now stands at 25,009 since testing began.

Covid-19 cases are identified by taking specimens from people and testing them for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If the test is positive - except for rapid lateral flow tests which have negative confirmatory lab-based PCR tests taken within 72 hours - this is referred to as a case.

If a person has more than one positive test, they are only counted as one case for all nations with the exception of Wales.
