General description

In order to improve the timely availability of data related to coronavirus (COVID-19) in adult care homes the Welsh Government and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) have agreed to publish provisional counts of the number of adult care homes reporting one or more confirmed cases of COVID-19 and provisional counts of deaths in care homes, based on notifications by care home providers to CIW.

Data collection and calculation

Daily return from Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) at a local authority (LA) level. Data is collected on a daily basis via an online form developed and maintained by Care Inspectorate Wales. The data is validated against previous returns and any significant changes are queried. Data is submitted via a CSV file and transferred to a SQL database. Data includes all notifications up to midnight each day.

Statistical quality

The number of adult care homes in this report fluctuates. This is due to the registration of new care homes and the closure of others. For example, during November 2020, 6 adult care homes were removed and 4 were added.
