About 62,900 people had Covid in the week ending 20 September, which equates to 2.07% of the population or about one in 50 people in Wales, estimates said.

The consecutive rises in infections come after more than two months of falls in infection rates.

In the week ending 13 September, 39,700 people were estimated to have had Covid, the highest since mid-August.

Since summer 2020, the ONS has organised a weekly swab survey involving thousands of households across Wales, which now involves people being sent test kits by post.

It has become the most important tool to measure the level of infections, with the end of mass testing at the end of March.

Infections are estimated to be lower in Wales than in Scotland, where the trend is uncertain, but higher than in England and Northern Ireland.

The ONS estimated infections to involve one in 65 people in England, one in 45 in Scotland and one in 58 in Northern Ireland.

Broken down, daily estimates of infection were highest in people in their 80s.

Meanwhile, the so-called R-number - the reproduction number - has risen for the first time in more than a month.
