Ceredigion remains the county with the fewest coronavirus cases, as well as the county with the lowest ratio of positive Covid-19 tests.

Only 3% of all 1,931 tests carried out in the county have come back as positive for coronavirus.

This is nearly a quarter of the national rate of 11.8%.

The national average has been falling, however, with the hardest hit counties seeing a small drop in their positive testing ratio in the recent days.
