Forthcoming changes to the way we publish Coronavirus information

Public Health Wales is making some changes to the way we publish information on our website and data dashboard.

Starting on 17 April, we will no longer be publishing Coronavirus data or a daily statement on our website on Saturdays.

Dr Chris Williams, Consultant Epidemiologist for Public Health Wales, said:

“Coronavirus is with us to stay, and the way we report data must be sustainable.  No other communicable disease is subject to daily reporting, and we are bringing our Coronavirus dashboard further in-line with routine communicable disease reporting.

“Our surveillance team will retain the ability to ramp back up to seven day reporting if necessary.”

The Public Health Wales dashboard is intended as a rapid reporting tool to provide the best and most up-to-date information, which is subject to ongoing data reconciliation.  Official statistics relating to Coronavirus in Wales are published by the Office for National Statistics.
