Data on NHS Wales activity was announced by NHS Wales Chief Executive Andrew Goodall in his press conference today, Thursday (Apr 23).

The data reads as follows:

· But this varies across Wales – there are higher rates in South Wales, in Aneurin Bevan, Cardiff and Vale and Swansea Bay health board areas.

· Around one in three tests are positive.

· There is evidence of lower numbers of people with coronavirus in intensive care.

· Today, all our health boards are continuing to report their status as green or level one.

· About 47% of our acute hospital beds are currently empty.

· There are 773 people with confirmed coronavirus in acute hospitals today and a further 335 suspected cases – this is lower than last week.

· We have 393 available critical care beds this week. More than half are empty and available.
