The total number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in Wales has reached 124, Public Health Wales (PHW) has said.

Shortly afterwards, the death of the first person in Wales from the virus was announced – a 68-year-old patient at Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

Thirty new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed across Wales on Monday.

However, the true number of cases is likely to be higher as officials are concentrating on testing those sick enough to need hospital treatment.

The virus has been confirmed in 19 of the 22 Welsh local authorities with Denbighshire, Merthyr Tydfil and Gwynedd still having no recorded cases.
